One of Discord’s best features is coming to Facebook

Meta has announced (opens in new tab) that it’s currently working on a series of new Facebook group features intended to bring communities closer together, and some of them will be well known to users of the popular voice, video and text chat app Discord.

According to the announcement, administrators will soon have the ability to create channels within their groups that allow them to interact in “smaller, more casual environments where they can have deeper discussions about common interests or organize their communities around topics in different formats.”

This includes new Discord-style community audio channels, which allow admins and group members to “jump in and out of audio conversations in real time,” along with regular text-based chat channels for those shy on the microphone.
