The test run will last a month or so, which is when Discord plans to open up the features to all users.

For now, video chat and screen sharing is only available in one-to-one Discord calls or within direct message groups of up to 10 people, so you'll need to start one to see the video options (the team recommends five users at once for best quality).

If you're one of the lucky few to get the new feature this week, don't plan everything going smoothly.

"Thanks for your patience as we develop this feature," writes Discord's Nelly on Medium.

That extra cash may be why the Discord team is able to start rolling out two of its most-requested features, video chat and screen sharing.

Additionally, the service is introducing stylistic filters that can give your video footage a different color hue or lighting type.

You’ll be able to preview these filters live before sharing the style with your group.

Alongside the filter updates, Messenger will be making it easier for users to take screenshots of their video chat conversations with a dedicated button that will save images so you can easily preserve a snapshot of a call without fumbling with multi-button combinations.

While services like Face Time are popular, they’re pretty bare-bones compared to most photo and video apps out there.
