What is the purpose of new topics on Discord, according to rumour?

Threads is distinctly different from the Replies feature that Discord introduced last year.

Discord is beloved by gamers, allowing them to speak to a group of friends through text chat and Skype-style voice calls while playing computer games.

What are Discord’s new threads feature?
On July 27, the communication platform launched its Thread feature that allows servers to improve the back-and-forth conversations on the service.

Users will be able to create new threaded conversations using a new “#” option across Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, and Android the web starting July 27.

A separate feed is generated for threaded conversations, and Discord server admins will control which members of a server can participate in threads.

Threads work very similar to how they do in many other chat clients, allowing Discord users to branch off a conversation away from the main channel feed.

Moderators will even be able to remove people from threads if they’re troublesome.

Discord is also introducing both public and private threads.

Public threads in a channel will let any members send messages permission to start and reply to threads, but private threads will allow certain members to create and chat privately. You’ll be able to @ invite people into a private thread or manually add them. Discord will automatically archive threads within 24 hours to try to reduce the clutter for channels. You’ll still be able to read threads in an archive tab, but you won’t be able to reply to them once they’re archived.

Server admins can configure this for up to three days for archive by default, but if a server is boosted to level 2 with Nitro boosts, then private threads and a one-week archive option will be available. Did Microsft buy Discord?
In March, the tech business world was set ablaze with rumors of a major acquisition. Microsoft was said to be in talks with Discord about a buy-out. The value of the acquisition is estimated to be as high as $10billion, according to Bloomberg.
