Why do people voice chat on discord?

:iconss0011:
SS0011 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just wondering since people always ask me for discord and wanna voice chat when I prefer text chat. I don't live alone, therefore, I have no privacy. So, I can't talk to them without my family asking 20 questions and wanting to do a background check on the person to see if they are a murderer.

IDK, I rarely use the feature myself. I mostly just use Discord's text chats.

For voice reveals :eyes:

and when you're gaming and don't wanna go to Discord to type, then go back to your game, then go back to Discord, etc.

I understand. It's just, I'm not a gamer and it seems creepy for someone to want to hear my voice. They ask constantly when I don't want to.

It's a low latency voice chat client for people who game at the same time as talk. Me and my friends have been using it for years; maybe you should try it with your friends?

Why is it hard to admit? I think honesty is the best policy. Besides, I don't have friends due to a strict up bringing

It's all good; as for why people wouldn't admit that, it's less about honesty and more about social acceptance, lies are the glue that hold society together after all.

I understand, but I don't think it's a big deal to lie about having friends. If someone asks why I don't have friends, I just tell them why. Some people might be socially awkward or something. Haha, you never know what it might be.

I don't like talking to random strangers, but at least the internet is a shield. I don't like talking on the phone at all since there will be an awkward silence and of course, privacy reasons.

Discord is mainly a voice client so more than likely it's expected for you to talk. CAW!

Otherwise... I get you. At some point it gets tiring. At least with text, you can do other things and always come back.

Voice chat it's annoying as fuck, hearing everyone's breath on your ears, what they are watching on the tv, or their moms speaking personal things to them on the background it's not appealing to me in the least. lol

Uhh, the thought is creepy lol. I never liked voice chat or even talking on the phone. You can't multitask the way you want to, because they can hear you say stuff to your parents or your parents say stuff to you. I can't eat while talking on the phone or just make an excuse to not reply for a while.

I don't like voice chat or talking on the phone either, for conversations like that i prefer to do it in person, so for online conversations text chat does the job. Yeah that's why i dislike voice chat, you can hear everything they are doing, and it's really distracting.

Why don't you join a commune or try to become a roommate to someone? I've been following you for a few months and if it's really that bad at home you should try to get a part time job, getting a slacker roommate might get annoying and it'll be difficult food and general necessity wise but, still

Can't get a job. I need money to get a ged and I need a ged to get a job. I didn't finish school, because sick grandparents got in the way years ago and I got put on the back burner. I can't leave home either, even though I tried to literally run for the door to some guy that I barely knew from a dating site, because he agreed to drive 25 miles to pick me up at night. As far as making money online goes, I can make money, but can't use it offline. No bank account. If I ask my mom if I can open a bank account, she will find out that I've been making money without her permission and probably take my money. If she lets me have a bank account, she will tell me to use MY money for things like food or helping to pay bills. That's understandable, but I wouldn't be able to save any of my money at all.

they want to hear your voice? have poor text/type skills, up to no good... many options, some good, some bad.  I prefer text/type myself.

I'm not embarrassed, I'm secretive and I just find it odd how some people can be so pushy about it or think I'm some 42 year old man, because they can't hear my voice.

Im pretty sure no one has ever in the history of time and space, thought you were a 42 year old man, if someone says that, they are trying to wind you up, why care what they think anyway?
Fact of the matter is though, that lots of people like to use dicord for voice chat, its afaik the main purpose? chat for gamers/guilds/clans?
