As it seeks to extend its mass communication platform, Discord has consistently secured alliances and other economic transactions. Discord has announced its latest economic strategy, following the recent introduction of server subscriptions and complete support for Xbox platforms. Discord has purchased Gas, a popular social media platform aimed at teenagers.
In an official blog post, Discord announced its acquisition of Gas. Gas, which was released in 2022, allows users to take anonymous surveys about their peers. The software, aimed towards younger audiences, is intended to promote optimism and compliments, hence the name Gas. In the announcement, the firm discusses what initially piqued its interest in the platform, as well as its future intentions.
While Gas is mostly aimed at a younger demographic, Discord has a much larger target audience. Fans will be interested to see if the new parent business plans to advertise the app to older users as well, or if it will stick to its existing audience.
Discord has made attempts to integrate native game and app features, so it will be fascinating to see whether the platform includes Gas or anything like in the future. In the meantime, bookmark our Discord topic page for the most recent information on the communication platform and the firm that runs it.
