For gameday chat, or just idle banter, join the BearsFansOnline.com Discord channel!

It should work on every type of device - phone, desktop, laptop, etc.

You may want to sign up for a Discord account, but I'm not 100% sure if that's mandatory.

edit: Update

Yeah, so I'm not gonna have audio, at least not right now. I need to be able to moderate and control what sounds are added and removed, and currently I don't know how to set that. Once I know I can control it, I'll re-enable audio for the chat server.

Yeah, so I'm not at all a fan of the goats drop. I've had that fucking sound create awkward moments when I'm around family and my fiancee, and it's just kinda...trashy. So yeah, no go on the goats.

I'll have more updates probably tomorrow afternoon as I learn how to moderate and control the chat channel.

Ah that's a shame, I hope I didn't cause one when I was in there messing around with the functions!

So I'm assuming that means no more online chats on website during the games?

Discord is on the web. I access it over the web almost exclusively.

@UOK any updates on the sounds?

If it's not too much of a pain in the ass, at least getting Bear Down on there is going to add to the experience :D

Just curious, for people who chat during the game do you just have your laptop on your lap while watching? I feel like I do way too much jumping around/yelling to be able to use mine while watching the game.

I honestly can't do chat during games. I pop in occasionally but it takes away from my concentration on the game.

I have it on my phone but don’t check it but every few minutes.

I'm a very strong multi-tasker. When the action is live I'm focused on the TV but once the play ends I give my thoughts and read what others had to say.

Rinse repeat.

I joined briefly, but the coverage over here was a minute or two behind, so once a few reactions came before the relevant plays... I bailed!!

That's pretty typical of every live game chat in existence.

Yup, can't say I was overly surprised to be honest! It's certainly not a knock on either the chat or GamePass platform, just a fact of life!
