# Chat

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-".

# Discord

Join the IPFS Discord server (opens new window) for synchronous chat! Server documentation can be found on Notion (opens new window).

# Matrix

Join the Matrix space (opens new window). Homeserver documentation is available on Notion (opens new window).

# Slack

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).

# Forums

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.
