Big Discord servers can be a nightmare that can be tracked. Fortunately, the chat client has started testing Threads, temporary subchannels that allow you to open a sidebar to continue a conversation in peace.
Revealed exclusively by our sister site TechRadar, Discord has introduced Threads with a very limited capacity. Currently, testing is restricted to bot developers (to ensure that the feature does not break compatibility) on servers with less than 5 users and 1 bot.
However, TechRadar accessed such a test server. And, in practice, Discord threads work almost identically to a feature similar to Slack. Clicking a button below any message will effectively open a new channel in the sidebar.
After a certain time, the thread will be archived automatically, although administrators can revive them at any time. Threads can also be fixed like any other message, making them available immediately at all times.
Previously, Discord tried to fix its channel mess with replies, which made it clearer when a message responded directly to a previous post. But with some of the larger channels moving at an outrageous rate, the idea of getting into a thread to breathe a theme sounds more than welcome.
