Discord has a lot more than chatting - Voice calling, screen sharing, great hotkeys, simple server invite links (Discord.gg) – I know Matrix is getting some of these, but unless Discord goes full Digg mode I don’t think the crowd is going to switch.
sounds like we just need the screen sharing and voice and then everything else will fall into place.

Isn’t discord electron as well?
Yes, the discord desktop app is electron. The element desktop app is also electron.
Not yet. We’ll need to wait for Spaces to be actually implemented before we can even begin to talk about Element being a comparable solution.
You mean spaces coming out of beta? So far spaces seem to work really well.
As far as I know, the spec is missing pirvate spaces completely, which is what the vast majority are expecting. Right now spaces are more like a facelift of the old communities.
You can do private spaces, I haven’t tested it yet tho.
Yes, but they don’t work, the functionality doesn’t exist. It’s there only for show for the moment. Anyone you invite to a private Space can’t see any of the channels because Space level access control isn’t done yet.
Discord has a censorship problem and I thought I heard it also had a privacy problem. I quit it when i read about that. I don’t recall the details, though.
It’s not the people that you should be REALLY worried about but it’s the people behind the Discord Guilds you should be.
If you can get a portion of Discord’s “market” to make the swap then you will be easier time getting your “friends” to swap over.
I uses it because Minetest, my hosting provider(s) and so are there… It’s difficult to NOT to be using Discord because of this alone.
