The Discord Go Live feature gives people a feeling of playing games with friends in a living room with low-latency streaming and integrated voice chat. The working of the feature based on the Discord’s game detection, the same way when it shows your friends what are you playing.
Free users can stream in 720p at 30 fps (frames per second). Nitro Classic users can stream in 1080p at 60fps; however, Nitro users can stream at 4k and 60fps. The server admin can switch off the feature if they want. The stream with the feature is stable and very low latency almost in real-time.
Discord Go Live feature isn’t aiming for Twitch, Mixer, or any other streaming platform. It doesn’t support webcam and is limited to 10 viewers only due to bandwidth restrictions and latency goals as they are not easy to overcome. The feature won’t be supported on MAC and Linux PCs; however, MAC and Linux users can watch from the browser. The app is planning to bring a version for the spectators. It seems that Discord with Go Live feature will be a hang out place for gamers.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
