Install Discord on Debian 11

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Discord on Debian 11. For those of you who didn’t know, Discord is the easiest way to talk over voice, video, and text. It was originally intended for gamers but these days, it is considered a Slack alternative even for team and community communication. Discord runs natively on all major operating systems, including Windows, macOS, and Linux.
