It was honestly inevitable that someone was going to buy Discord seeing as Discord itself is not profitable no mater how you slice it. Their store front was short lived and never given the focus it should have been. The Nitro system seems more like a way to donate to the platform then something you would actually want to spend money on. And for some reason Discord never spun off a business focused version no mater how many times people told them “You know if you just reskinned this and made it look business safe you could easily sell this”.
Anyway I wonder what this means for Xbox Live. Does Live just get rolled into Discord seeing as it’s arguably the better platform? Does Microsoft just full up integrate Discord into Xbox? Does Gamepass now just absorb Nitro to given even more incentive? Is this how Microsoft gets back into the live streaming space? Will Discord get Power Apps integration so you can display your PowerBi graphs of your CSGO match history???
Edit: Just to add, if Discord could get the Teams tabs feature that would be really nice. Probably my favorite part of Teams is just having things like pinned to a channel in the form of a tab like “Hey these are the groups webpage bookmarks” and simple wiki’s. Imagine just having a easy wiki for you and your friends to share for a new game where you want to discover the information together and not just go looking it up in the mega wikis that contain all the spoilers 5 minutes after launch. Also jokes aside Power Apps is incredibly intuitive and would make bot writing very easy for anyone.
