Pandamonium has switched it's official voice chat to Discord. It's an "all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone." Our goal in selecting this over other voice chat options was to keep everyone in touch while still allowing the freedom to play other games (if you allow it, it shows what game you're playing when logged in, and has robust text chat functionality). If you'd like to learn more about Discord, there's a pretty thorough review here.
Installation and login instructions (as well as Frequently Asked Questions and a status widget) can be found on our Voice page, and Discord tags for Pandamonium members can be found here.

- Unlimited users!
- It has browser, smart phone, and standalone applications.
- It has a shiny UI.
- It allows for custom user volumes.
- You can have multiple text channels.
- It's geared towards gamers.
- It allows everyone to generate a 24 hour guest link (which means pug guests would be welcome).
