Discord’s turning the focus back to games with a new redesign

Discord is refocusing on gaming with a new app redesign that enhances group messages, voice chats, and video calls. CEO Jason Citron emphasized the need to shift from being a general community chat app to one that strengthens friendships around games. The redesign aims to improve accessibility and reliability across devices. This pivot reverses Discord's 2020 strategy to be a broad messaging platform and comes after significant staff layoffs and regulatory scrutiny over child safety. Citron reiterated the company's renewed gaming focus in an April interview, noting that most users are gamers.
