Bug Description

Discord website: https://discordapp.com
Discord ToS: https://discordapp.com/terms

Discord already packages debs themselves using links that automatically redirect to the latest versions. There are 3 separate branches of Discord that are available. The Stable branch is the main release, PTB is basically the beta release, and Canary is pretty much an alpha release. The differences between the three branches are usually just features that Discord is testing out; they very rarely push versions on any branch that completely break the client. The couple of times that this has happened in the past, it was rectified very quickly.

Discord Canary deb url: https://discordapp.com/api/download/canary?platform=linux&format=deb

As far as I know, these packages will work on any version of Ubuntu as long as their dependencies are available there. I have only tested them on 16.04 myself, and all of the dependencies are available in 16.04.

Description: All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that's free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life.

Never pay for voice chat again

Discord is always completely free to use with no gotchas. This means you can make as many servers as you want with no slot limitations.

Wondering how we’ll make money? In the future there will be optional cosmetics like themes, sticker packs, and sound packs available for purchase. We’ll never charge for Discord’s core functionality.
Play online with peace of mind

Encrypted server to client communication keeps your IP address safe. Stop getting ganked because you're logged into Skype.

Our resilient Erlang backend running on the cloud has built in DDoS protection with automatic server failover.
Always be connected to your friends

Download the free mobile app to chat while on the go or summon your AFK friends by sending a push notification with an @mention.
Text chat designed for the 21st century

Easily share images, videos, and links from your desktop or phone. Discord embeds most types of media directly in the chat.

GIFs only play when you mouse over them, so your CPU is spared. Post those GIFs. Oh yeah!
Voice chat that doesn't slow down your game

Designed for use while gaming, Discord has minimal impact on your CPU. Your game's performance won't be affected in the slightest. Seriously. It's time to ditch CPU hogs like Skype.
The easiest setup you've ever seen

It takes just 10 seconds and doesn’t require any drivers or weird setting configuration. Discord can even run in the browser which is great for PUGs you invite to your voice channel or those stubborn friends of yours.

Managing your server is easy, but powerful

Robust permissions and multiple channels, all within an easy-to-use UI, make Discord perfect for both small groups or large guilds.

Finally, the power you’ve come to expect from TeamSpeak, Vent, and Mumble in a package that isn’t ridiculously complicated.
Voice quality so clear you can hear a pin drop

Discord is built with the latest tech using a modern jitter buffer, automatic gain control, noise suppression, echo cancellation, and more.

You'll love it and it works everywhere: desktop apps, browser apps, and phones.
Securely add
and message friends

Discord allows you to add friends and individually message them outside of servers.

Use our block feature to prevent direct messages from baddies. We even hide the offenders' text in servers - keep your eyes pure!
See who's talking without pressing alt+tab

:EDIT: Sorry for upping the heat... didn't see that would happen when changing the privacy level. x.x
