In general, public IPFS Discord channels are bridged to Matrix and Slack. As a result, you can usually use your preferred chat application to engage with the community. IPFS channels/rooms are usually prefixed with "#ipfs-".
Join the IPFS Discord server (opens new window) for synchronous chat! Server documentation can be found on Notion (opens new window).
Join Filecoin slack (opens new window) and join the bridged #ipfs channels. The Filecoin Slack workspace user guide is available on Notion (opens new window).
For longer-lived discussions and for support, please use the discussion forums at https://discuss.ipfs.tech (opens new window) instead! It’s easy for complex discussions to get lost in a sea of new messages on chat, and posting longer discussions and support requests on the forums help future visitors, too.
