Discord Raises Livestream Limit Due To Coronavirus

Good one Discord

With the cancellation of GDC, South by Southwest and now E3 2020, it’s clear that the Coronavirus is having a sizeable impact on the gaming industry as well as the world at large.

With a great deal of doom and gloom floating around at the moment, it’s nice to see even a glimmer of positivity shine through. Announced on Twitter today (March 12), Discord is dishing out a sliver of positivity by raising their user limit for their Go Live feature from 10 up to 50.

This feature allows users to privately stream and/or screen share to others, meaning that it has practical applications for work and study in addition to its social and gaming capabilities.

A full statement made by founder Jason Citron on Discord’s blog outlines that this will hopefully help those effected by COVID-19:

Go Live is free to use and lets people privately stream or screen share apps from a computer while others watch on any device — so teachers can conduct a class, co-workers can collaborate, and groups can still meet.

The full statement can be found HERE.

Is this a good move by Discord? Do you use Go Live? Let us know.
