Discord reorganizes, cuts 4% of its staff

Chat app Discord has relieved close to 40 employees (4% of its workforce) of their duties as part of company restructuring.

The job cuts affected employees in marketing, design, and entertainment partnership teams.

Discord claimed to be “focused on the long-term growth of the business and delivering on our mission” while confirming the layoffs to Business Insider.

Discord has been busy with updates during the past few months. Last month, Discord rolled out a Family Center as an opt-in tool to better inform parents and guardians about their children’s activity on the app. The company also introduced a feature to let users directly stream Xbox gameplay to servers and DMs.

In March, Discord updated its Clyde bot with OpenAI’s ChatGPT so users can ask it for suggestion during a group chat.
