Many now have came up with many theories and many people overreacting, today we’ll be debunking those statements and coming up with the main reason for this change.
Some people have came up with some serious claims, however, many of them are not true.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 6 months you may have noticed a massive inclination in AI and many companies are now looking to integrate this into their platforms.
We know this isn’t true as there haven’t been direct relations to feeding the AI with this data we also have another more likely reason on why this happened. We would also need to know that Discord would have to change their ToS more to state they were sending data to OpenAI.
It’s taking a while for Discord to respond the there only official statement from Discord is on a PcGamer article:
Discord is adding features that allow users to record and send voice messages and clip live streams, which of course would require a change in the ToS.
This has made people overreact quite a lot. However, the main privacy problem is that Discord has funding from Tencent a massive Chinese company, Tencent & in China there is currently a mas surveillance problem, so that should be the primary risk.
People are suggesting an alternative, Guilded - Which is owned by Roblox, which also has got funding from Tencent, so that idea is almost completely futile.
At the end of the day, people shouldn’t be too frustrated or concerned about this, it’s highly unlikely that Discord will be using your data to train an AI model, it’s likely that the new features simply required a privacy change.
If you would change from discord what would you change to?
