Discord inaugurates new brand identity with updated logo and features
About a year ago, Discord began its mission to start changing its brand identity, and this week he started building on that by adding a new feature called Stage Discovery, while also updating his logo.
Part of Discord’s movement was moving from a mostly gaming-centric chat platform to a place where people could just hang out last year. more inclusive for everyone. The new look is part of this strategy. The familiar “fuzzy” color is brighter and a bit deeper than it used to be. And the font has more fun and inviting visual appeal. Although vestiges of the oldest color and font still hang out in a few places.
The Windows Discord app, for example, always shows the lighter colored blur on the Start menu and taskbar icons. The Discord font in the upper left corner of the app window is also still the old font. Although these things will certainly change over time. And probably with the next Discord update.
Then there is the app logo. Clyde, as Discord calls it, has more “defined shoulder buttons.” Make it look a bit more like a gamepad. Both keeping the ‘love of games’ aesthetic while embracing the changes made over the past 11 months.
Discord Stage Discovery helps you find live audio events
With its launch of Stage Channels, Discord is launching Stage Discovery. Stage channels are channels for live audio events. It can be anything from live comedy to music to podcasts.
With Stage Discovery, Discord allows users to find the stage channels they like without having to join and leave a bunch of channels to find one or two. This is a simpler process for discovering new channels and events that you want to participate in.
And since you don’t have to constantly go in and out of canals, it should overall be a bit more enjoyable. Discord says Stage Discovery will launch in June. So it’s not yet available.
In addition to Stage Discovery, Discord will also launch the Threads feature. Which he said was his most requested feature by users. This is exactly what it means. Discussions will be displayed in discussion threads to make them easier to read and more streamlined. It’s also happening this summer, although Discord hasn’t given an exact timeline for it. So it could launch in June, but if it did arrive next month, Discord probably would have said so.
The most likely scenario is that it will launch in July or August. If you were one of the users who requested Threads, be on the lookout. Because it’s officially on the way now.
