Is Discord The Free Slack Alternative for Your Growing Team? | Elegant Themes Blog
Verdict: Is Discord Team Chat a Viable Slack Alternative?
Absolutely. Yep. Discord can absolutely be a Slack replacement, and is a viable alternative — especially if you haven’t already chosen a team chat. The Discord voice chat is head and shoulders above Slack’s, and making calls and having video conferences is so much simpler. (The text chat is comparable on both, really, so it’s a wash.)

Slack, on the other hand, is a more complete workspace. The file sharing is much better, and the ability to keep your work and play separate is a must-have for a lot of people. Also, if you’re big into automation, Slack’s apps and Slackbot are way better than the Discord versions. However, the freemium model may not work for all businesses, and paying for access to everything on your server after you’ve grown your team with a certain budget can be pretty disheartening.

If communication is your main focus, Discord is robust and easy to use. While Slack has a few more bells and whistles, they may not be worth the cost in the long run for your team. Do some tests and try them out for yourself since they’re both free to start with, but I think you’ll find that Discord is a lot more than just a tool for gamers to organize play sessions.
