Discord, a free chat app designed for gamers, has been rapidly growing since it launched in 2015. The company has 250 million users and 14 million daily active users, which is more than Slack. It allows users to chat privately and hosts invite-only servers. Though the company markets itself explicitly to gamers, there are servers devoted to everything from stock trading to meme sharing and fantasy football.
