So there's a new competitor to Teamspeak, called Discord. It has FREE hosting at the moment, Mac and Windows client support (not Linux yet, although it can be used in a browser), I've tested it out a bit with Josh and Griff just now, and the sound quality's pretty awesome. I'd recommend taking a look at it. It's pretty promising.

At the very least it'll be good for when the TS server goes down.

Here's a link to the site

aye it can be run through your browser or you can download the desktop app, have to say, was fairly impressed, very good sound quality, the browser bit especially appeals for if TS goes down and is offline for any reasonable length of time

Looks really good! I'll not ditch the TS3 just yet, but could certainly be something to keep an eye on over time, could be quite good if development continues at its current pace.

There's been some very decent improvements on it in terms of quality and usability, I quite like the idea of being able to message in the server whilst not being connected. Crazy that it's free to use too.

Discord for me is a very versatile tool, almost like mixing Telegram and Teamspeak together with the ability to share files of various sorts to other people with no hassle. Definitely worth looking into if you want a spare voice chat

Watch this space.

A small team are looking into Discord as a possible future opportunity, we are just trying to knock out some kinks before delving deeper.

Discord is absolutely great! and the fact its free will also be a lovely benefit. But for now, it is just an insight. Hopefully more to come.
