  1. I am using Mumble with my friends. Two of us are running Mumble Server on a Raspberry Pi at home.
     
  2. Friend pays for a Teamspeak server. We use that when we start jumping into any games and it does what we need with it.

    If I'm strictly playing co-op games with my younger brother, we use the Steam Chat.

    In the past i've used Skype, but all about Discord now. Its nice and easy. doesn't appear to affect my ping... so all wins from my point of view.
     
  4. Discord. It's easy to use, and also does not intrude with a game at all.

    It's hard to recommend anything but Discord as things are right now.

    Actually one thing I'd love to see Razer do is integrate Discord functions into the macro keys as part of Synapse.

    Discord all the way here :D
    It could still use some improvements but it's nice.
    Used to use Curse but that went to hell. Before that Skype and before thát, MSN, but now I'm just getting nostalgic...

    Recently I found Twitch too as it has a channel chat function and I'm using it more recently, and there is upside - you can watch streams and discuss them in a single app.

    TS- yes because i'm a TS admin and i have my own music bot :)

    Skype no- because I don't have a cam installed

    Personally, I prefer Discord. I think it's slicker and easier to use for us gamers. Skype is okay, but I feel more comfortable with Discord.

    I've used all three for a fair bit of time and my personal preference here would be Discord. For me, Skype just lacks in everything ever since Discord popped up. The only reason you would use Skype is to screen-share now, and really, it's not that great of a feature. Skype just doesn't have the clean layout and simple navigation as Discord does as well.

    Although, TeamSpeak is still quite nice and easy to use. Most of the essential features are available on TeamSpeak but the only reason why I would put Discord over TeamSpeak is because Discord is a lot more appealing to the eye and it's easier to navigate. I guess it's just the simplicity that really does the job.

    Discord all the way. SOOOOO much better than skype. I love the communities part of it.

    We typically use Discord now. I had a small group of friends that still used Mumble for a while but eventually migrated over to Discord.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that there is more latency in Discord than TS/Mumble so playing games like Rocket League sometimes can be frustrating.

    Skype: The most used by casual users ... requires a lot of bandwidth and without an excellent connection causes crashs and lags... so for some types of games (mmorpg for example) is not recommended at all.

    Discord: Quite new, it has many interesting features, for example the chatts look excellent. The audio quality is amazing and does not consume too much bandwidth... so it can be used with any kind of game (even on smarphones) ... the only thing that makes my nose twitch is security.

    TS3: it's still a good software, but you have to pay a server and is very put it down with exploits ... and in a world where kids have fun doing ddos attacks... you have to spend a lot of money in firewall protection.
    I own a TS3 server, I use it with my community, we tried several ts servers retailers before finding one with excellent ddos protection at fair prices (6 euros per month) and we are fine now... but to be honest, If i had not to to move more than 100 users, i would use Discord now.

    Discord all the way, free, easy to use, web browser and a client + very customization servers.
    Don't see a reason why you would chose anything else :D

    Discord by far. It's modern and has all the functionality of the before mentioned platforms.
    It is also free and frequently has impressive updates. Skype can have a lot of connection issues and just simply isn't gamer oriented.
    TeamSpeak will always be good, but it's not as good as Discord.

    I've used skype for many years, but now i moved to discord with the help of my friends who use it. Skype was good back in the day when you could actually talk and see the person who you we're talking too (i don't know if you can see it on discord too) but when i changed to discord seems a bit smoother for me, no lags, no interruptions, no connection error plus not that voice speaker, it's all improved i'd say. And nowadays i hear they can have job interviews on skype, so it's becoming a business application. So discord ftw.

    Skype is kinda old and gold for our ages, dischord is due to popularity, even thou skype not much user around me but still the quality is good enough for 2-3 team play.

    Dischord more to like bigger group of player.
