Etisalat UAE blocks Discord chat app

Thursday 30 March 2017 | 09:28 CET | News
Etisalat UAE has blocked the popular voice over internet programme Discord, to the frustration of thousands of video gamers, reports The National. Players across the country took to Twitter to voice their concerns over the move. Discord is an app that functions as voice and text chat platform for gamers to connect, independent of the games they are playing. Users said it was better than the competition as it is free and capable of supporting up to 100 people in any given chat room.
