Discord update adds activities, app directory, and cheaper Nitro subscription

Discord announced a plethora of updates to its online communication software and service today, including new ways to interact with third-party apps on the platform and a cheaper Nitro subscription tier.

The VoIP and text chat service is adding a new “App Directory” where server moderators can browse apps and integrate them into their servers, all within the Discord app. Third-party apps were supported already, but you had to go find them on the web and install them.
