Discord is an online instant messaging and VoIP social platform, with users having the ability to communicate with voice calls, video calls, text messaging, media and files in chats as part of communities called "servers". The platform runs on Windows, macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Android, Linux, and in web browsers.

The platform was launched on May 13, 2015, and is available in 30 languages. As of 2021, the service has over 350 million registered users, and is primarily used by gamers.

Screen (2021-)

Visuals: On a dark gray background, there is a white symbol of a gaming controller, stylized to have two holes and curled down grips.

Trivia: The symbol is the official mascot of Discord and is named Clyde.


  • Originally, the logo had a periwinkle rounded square behind it.
    • At the least the phone startup has this variant, albeit with the logo quickly fading out before fading back in, only with just Clyde.
  • When starting up the app without being logged in (at least after installation), the background briefly changes to white and Clyde to black at the end.

Technique: A still digital graphic. Fading effects for the variant.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen when you open the Discord app on a tablet or phone.
