Everyone's using Discord nowadays and it's free to make a server but Discord is awful for voice. If you're generally at it for text, go with Discord but voice, Teamspeak.

Not talking about microphone quality.

This. The guy is asking which is better as a communication platform.

Both have pros and cons. Most of what's written below is taken from another forum. I was lazy to write everything, but I did add my own notes.

Discord advantages
1. Easy to manage.
2. Easy setup
3. Bot extension
4. Easy rank setup
5. Free of charge
6. APIs good for MC Servers rank syncing,
7. Nice Audio quality
8. Beautiful GUI

Discord disadvantages
1. No root access
2. Less extension
3. Audio quality.
4. Buggy/glitchy in-game overlay.
TS advantages
1. Easy to customize
2. Audio Quality
3. Almost no connection problems (If yes it is server misconfiguration)
4. Permission-managment is great
5. Good in-game overlay.

TS disadvantages
1. Ugly GUI
2. It is a pain in setting up
3. You have to own a dedicated server or a VPS or a TS Host for your TS server, it costs money.


I used both of them and so far, for new communities, I can say Discord is the better choice.
It's easy to set everything up, and it has social features that are useful.

However, if you want the pro way and you have the budget, I suggest Teamspeak.
It may be a bitch to set up, but it's more flexible than Discord, and it's made to get you the best voice chat experience.

Teamspeak is better for organization and voice quality imo, Discord is better for text communication and such. I've kind of replaced Skype with Discord; not Teamspeak 3.

Discord is better but the one problem is you don't really own the server. Basically if your account/server get highjacked there is nothing you can do to get it back, once it gone its gone. Ts on the other hand you own the server and have access to the files, console, etc and can make backups

Quality can be set per channel in Discord... Many aren't aware that it's configurable as much as it is.

Discord has its own security measures. If you're holding a community on its feet, you should know how to avoid hijacking.
Seriously, in all my life I never had issues with account hijacking. And my personal e-mail address dates since I was 12 years old, when I didn't know shit about computers, yet alone security.

Can you elaborate? What exactly do you mean by "setting quality"?

Discord is way better. If you wanna talk from phone, discord is free and you can use it anytime whereas you need to pay for a TS app
