One of the latest in text and communication apps, Discord has quickly become among the most popular apps since its release in 2013. It provides a whole slew of features utilized by casual users and gamers, and even for office work. It has a thriving community, and it’s public API actively supports multiple languages for those who wish to extend it’s capabilities through web app integration and custom server bots. To top it off in April of 2016 Hammer and Chisel, the company behind the app, released what they are calling Discord Canary to the world of Linux. This was fantastic news as now Linux users can take advantage of all the app has to offer without being forced to use the web browser version. This does come with a catch, however.
