As many of you know TeamSpeak has been incredibly slow with updates, just recently they began publishing an update a week, however, that has begun to slow as well.
The issue here is that the development rate for TeamSpeak is very slow and this has caused users to leave for other platforms. Nonetheless the point of this thread is to gather voices to be heard so that the TeamSpeak team can see that their method of “development” has caused discontent.
Discord started off with a small team and were able to push updates and features out rapidly in succession. The same can be said for Guilded, another chat solution, small team and yet are pushing out features at an incredible rate.
Yes, many of you will say that there are a lot of bugs, and you wouldn’t be wrong, however, its software and there will always be bugs, and those can get fixed along the way. Take Discord for instance, it was incredibly buggy when it was in beta early 2016 and the rest of that year, but they fixed many issues while releasing features and updates! Users still used the platform regardless that it was a horrible.
And yes, TeamSpeak’s development stack is different than either Discords or Guilded, but that shouldn’t account for this pace of development. Which again, can be fixed along the way.
TeamSpeak wants this perfect TeamSpeak client with every release of a beta version, but its beta! It doesn’t matter if we find bugs, that’s the point.
I have had a lot of great moments on this software and with users leaving to Discord and other platforms, I believe TeamSpeak should start developing on a quicker scale. There are so many users out there waiting to use good software for Voice + Chat, I’ve met users on Steam that have never heard of Discord or TeamSpeak and strictly use Steam VOIP servers.
I hope that many of you can shed some light for the TeamSpeak team on this thread. If enough of us voice our concerns, perhaps TeamSpeak will see this and change their view on their development pace.
