Hi Mi Community members,

How are you? I hope you all are fine. Our Mi Resources Team always focuses on sharing the best quality apps to our fellow Mi Community members. In addition to our weekly collection and AppTrend, we bring you a new series - App Showdown. In this series we will compare two apps and give you a detailed analysis of the comparison.

In this series we will discuss group chat app for Android. We knew that there area lot of chat applications such as Whatsapp, Telegram, Line and many more. But, today we will talking about Band and Discord. Did you familiar with both app? In the end of App Showdown thread, you can choose to join #TeamBAND or #TeamDISCORD   

BAND - App for all groups

BAND was first released in August 2012, developed by NAVER Corp. Maybe some people haven’t familiar with this app. But, believe me this application is very useful, especially if you have a big group chat. BAND will make you easily to organize your group! This app is very popular in Korea.

Speak of features, in BAND you will get a lot useful features like the Community Board, Polls, To-Do Lists, Shared Calendar, Private Chat and many more. This app will suitable for sport team, school groups, gaming group, works/projects and even family.
In BAND, we can do a lot activities. Not only chatting but also share files, photo, video, tracking and plan our activity with Calendar, send notification to all group members about new event and more.

BAND has became the Official Team Communication App for Varsity Spirit, AYSO, US Bands, and Legacy Global Sports. BAND is great application and can be used on any device (smartphone, desktop, tablet).

DISCORD - Chat for gamers

I believe that a lot of member in this community more familiar Discord than BAND. Discord is a proprietary freeware VoIP application and digital distribution platform designed for video gaming communities, that specializes in text, image, video and audio communication between users in a chat channel – wikipedia. User also can easily access discord from desktop, iOS and Android.

Discord was launched to public 4 years ago, on 2015 by Discord Inc. (Originally Hammer And Chisel).
Discord is very popular in gamers community, a lot of people called it “Chat app for gamers”. And yes, Discord is the best cross-platform chat app for text, video, and voice communications designed specifically for gamers. Discord used by over 250 million gamers around the world. They (gamers) can talk in real-time while playing games on their device.
