GitHub Discussions now available as a public beta

GitHub Discussions is now available as a public beta, providing you with a dedicated space for your community to ask and answer questions, and have conversations that are separate from issues in your repository.

Discussions work a lot like issues. However, with discussions you can also:

  • Mark questions with an answer
  • Convert issues into discussions
  • Categorize discussions – fully customizable
  • Have threaded conversations
  • Pin up to 4 discussions

We will continue adding more functionality based on your feedback, including adding Discussions to GitHub for mobile as a beta.

If you are an admin or maintainer of a public repository you can enable Discussions via repository settings for your community today!
