Discord is where you can make a home for your communities and friends. Where you can stay close and have fun over text, voice, and video. Whether you’re part of a school club, a gaming group, a worldwide art community, or just a handful of friends that want to spend time together, Discord makes it easy to talk every day and hang out more often.
Create an invite-only place
• Discord servers are organized into topic-based channels where you can collaborate, share, and just talk about your day without clogging up a group chat.
• Voice channels make hanging out easy. Grab a seat in a voice channel when you’re free. Friends can see you’re around and pop in to talk, without having to call.
• Reliable tech for staying close. Low latency voice and video feels like you’re in the same room.
STAY CLOSE WITH TEXT, VOICE, AND VIDEO
• Wave hello over video, watch friends stream their games, or gather up and have a drawing session with screen share.
• Turn any image into your own custom emojis and share them with friends.
• Share anything from a funny video to your latest group photos, and pin your favorites to remember later.
FOR A FEW OR A FANDOM
• Custom moderation tools and permission levels can group up your friends, organize your local book club, or bring together music fans from around the world.
• Create moderators, give special members access to private channels, and much more.
We’ve been hard at work making Discord better for you. For this version we've made a bunch of bug fixes and performance enhancements to make sure everything’s running as smooth as possible.
Ratings and Reviews
Since I joined my first server, it took some time for me to get used to all the functionality. There were so many things I didn’t know about, and yet that’s one of Discord’s biggest selling points. Most of the time if you want to do something, you can. Mark a server or channel as NSFW or 18+? You can do that. Change your display name for only one, specific server? You can do that too. But for me the most valuable thing about Discord is the sense of community that you feel almost immediately after logging on. Depending on your server choices you’ll almost always have an unread message, meaning there’s almost always something or someone for you to come back to. And if you don’t want to be bothered? Turn off notifications for servers and channels you don’t want to hear from. Not once have I had a security issue or even fear that I would lose personal information. Setting up 2-factor authentication was the easiest security experience I have had in a long time, and if you still have concerns, you won’t be required to even give Discord your phone number, much less your name and other personal info. When I’m not using the in-built messages app on my phone or tablet, Discord is my #1 default
New update reminds me of iMessage...
Don’t get me wrong, I love Discord, but ever since the update that made the text box cluttered with so many buttons, I feel like the app lost some of its uniqueness (and gained more glitches, at least with my phone). It feels like iMessages and the text box feels so small when I write because I can only get five or six words to a line when I used to get the entire width of my phone screen besides where the “send” button was (the one that didn’t used to be so obnoxious). I guess you could say I miss the simplicity of the chat box.
Also, the movement of the it when you click into the text box versus when you click out glitches on me and makes the whole app slow when switching between chats, channels, or servers. Everything lags behind and it gets to be pretty annoying.
One thing I absolutely love, though, is that when you type something, but let’s say your phone dies (like mine did twice), Discord saves what you wrote in the chat box! I have been saved so many times by that feature. Discord is a great app and I use it for so many things, but I also write a lot on it, so what I wrote affects me the way it might not affect others. The 2,000 character limit can get a bit irritating, too, so I wish there was a way you could switch the limit off, but I’ve found ways to work around it so it’s not an immediate issue. Overall, I love Discord, but I miss some things from its “Dark Ages,” as they called it.
Spoiler Alert: There are No Spoilers...
I love the app, great to talk to my friends and everything, service is improving with each update and I’m able to find different chats easily enough. When it comes to discussing subjects like books or movies, though, I want to make sure that I’d have a spoiler tag to hide the words or image so people who don’t want to be spoiled stay spoiler-free. Problem is, through research when I couldn’t find it, there is no way to make a picture or sentence “spoiler hidden”, which ends up having me to avoid any postings or talk about movies and such. Having a way to turn a picture or post onto a spoiler post would be something fine since it exists on every other device known. Also setting a custom status is also a slight pain, once you make one it either disappears after a small time or stays forever, but what about having the option to save a custom status? So that way you could have up to three you can switch between or turn off on the fly without having to delete it and go through the process of making the same custom status all over again. I want to let my friends know when I’m at work, if I’m still asleep and other such so they don’t have to guess why I’m idle. I know Discord can’t make everything happen, but some quality of life improvements and features that actually match all the other versions would be nice after all this time. But it’s a great app, still.
Developer Response ,
Hey there! Just wanted to give a quick update since your original post - you can mark text as spoilers on mobile using the same Markdown syntax as on desktop! Wrap your text in bars ||just like this|| and it'll show up as spoilers when you post it.
On iOS specifically, you can mark text as spoilers by selecting the text in the text box and tapping it to open the context menu. Once you have the text selected, you can tap Mark as Spoiler to wrap the selected text in bars.
You can check out this link to our Help Center article for more details: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022320632
On the other hand, I'll definitely make sure to give the team an extra nudge and forward that feedback on having a dedicated button for marking images as spoiler on the mobile app too, and also being able to saving custom statuses that you could switch around!
As always, thanks again for taking the time to share all this feedback, and for all the kind words for our app. We really appreciate all the support!
