Does Discord Record Audio?
The answer is No. Discord will not monitor, record, or store any calls/chats made on Discord. This applies to audio calls, video calls, server chats, the calls made within DMs or private groups.
The Discord team has repeatedly emphasized that privacy is very important to the company. This is probably why users love Discord, not having to worry about their words being monitored. Nonetheless, everyone had the opportunity to record Discord audio. You can read on to learn more about it.
We generally do not store the contents of video or voice calls or channels. If we were to change that in the future (for example, to facilitate content moderation), we would disclose that to you in advance...We also don’t store streaming content when you share your screen...
One user then took to Reddit to point out the change and express concern.
It is Possible to Record Audio on Discord?
While Discord does not monitor your calls, the fact is that any participant in a call has the opportunity to record the audio. And, it is possible to record without the other party's knowledge.
It is necessary to be discreet in voice chat channels particularly the public servers, where many people go in and out. You never know if someone is recording quietly.
But don't worry too much, in most parts of the world, it is against the law to record without the other person's knowledge. So if your privacy is violated in this way, you absolutely have rights.
