BluChange - Near Invaluable
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
The First Prism - It works but updates are less than satisfactory
I’ve had Discord for about three years now, and it does what it’s supposed to, but there are many features that are annoying to say the least. My main issue with Discord is that it seems like they don’t care about the mobile app as much as they should. There are many features that don’t work on mobile but should such as: editing the About Me (it doesn’t save on my mobile app), attaching files to messages, marking images with spoilers, managing purchases, and using certain owner/administrator features. Also, Discord does not offer a desktop app for iPads, which are more than capable of running a Mac version of the app. And they don’t offer an easy way to access the browser version on mobile devices. The only way to access the browser site on a mobile device is by copying and pasting a link from your computer into your device and signing in from there, which is very inconvenient. But I would say my biggest complaint is that instead of addressing these issues with the mobile app, Discord pushes features that are seemingly unnecessary, when there are more pressing matters that should be addressed. But other than that it fulfills its purpose well, and if the mobile app issues were addressed, I would be more than happy to give this app five stars. But because of this seeming disinterest in fixing some of the features in the mobile app, I can’t in good conscience give them a perfect rating.
Arqilies - 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.
MemeManOfThe90s - 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.
Aaliyana Kehlani Nuñez - I love discord but please help
I have been having discord for two years and this thing that’s happening I’m starting to not like it so lately my profile has been becoming pixelated and every time I change it to my friends profile who don’t have a pixelated it becomes pixelated for me I don’t know what’s going on but I definitely want this problem to be fixed because I look so weird with the pixelated pfp idk what’s up with this but please fix it I do not like my profile being pixelated every time I change my profile to my friends it always comes out pixelated for me but not pixelated for though I even went on PC and I tried on my phone and it still makes it pixelated I don’t know what’s up but discord I think your update is making profiles pixelated because my friends profile is pixelated too and I don’t know what’s going on with the profiles but please fix it I don’t know if y’all are making a new update for Discord and it’s hacking peoples profiles I don’t know because everyone profile is pixelated to it’s not only me and my friends it’s a lot of people read it is talking about this too so I don’t really know what to do please know that I want this to not be some type of hack because this happened on other social media‘s and I hope this is not some type of hack and I hope it’s kind of like a update y’all are trying to do right now but please fix it I hope that this is that some type of hack please and thank you!!
SpareGuitar - Integrated Phone Calls
Discord is an amazing app that lets you do casual conversations without the loud notifications you would usually get from text messages. It does an amazing job at keeping notifications hidden when you want them to be.
But I cannot say the same for calls. Recently, Discord started integrating their calls with actual phone calls. This means that every time I get called on Discord, it goes through to my ringtone. The whole reason I use Discord is to keep my online life separate from my personal life.
Although there is a setting that allows you to disable this feature, I still get the ringtone. Whenever I get called on Discord, even though the app is closed, I still get a ringtone. I even have all notifications turned off in my settings. The ringtone only lasts about 2 seconds before it realizes that it should not be there, but it gets pretty annoying, since it forces me to stop whatever i’m doing on my phone.
What annoys me the most is that this issue has been fixed before. The previous update had the setting that disabled the integrated phone calls, but it actually did its job, unlike this recent update. I had no calls going through no matter how much I was getting spammed with calls.
I thought this problem would be gone forever, but it still managed to find its way back. I’ve resorted to having to delete the app just to avoid the ringtone...again. Please fix this issue.
LolaTheAwesomeMii - Okay, but mobile keeps glitching
I like Discord because the app allowed me to meet many people and get myself involved with different activities but during texting sometimes the “connecting” makes it glitch and then my messages can’t be sent at all. I could easily leave the app and refresh it but it’s a pain when it happens all the time. I’m afraid one day the app would kick me out and all of my text would disappear, my time wasted. Every update I hope this gets fixed but I heard Discord isn’t very efficient in fixing their app compare to their desktop version. I do update it, but it’s no use when the same issue arises over and over again. Please fix it. It used to not do this before and if I knew this was going to happen I wouldn’t have updated the app. But then that would prevent me from other perks like background gifs and each individual server pfp from Nitro. I’m usually on mobile because of how convenient it is to bring around the house and when I go out so I use it more than desktop. So if Discord could please keep up with the updates on the app as much as the desktop, that would be greatly appreciated. Especially this buffering of sending messages, since it’s an annoying hiccup that keeps coming up despite being small. Otherwise, it’s a great app that has me spending on it even though I told myself I would never spend on an app.
Grumpis D'Gringus - Please, please bring back the private call option
Sure, Discord is much better in terms of quality, but by far my biggest complaint is the removal of the private mode option while calling people. I deserve a right to privacy, as does everyone else, and it’s too loud for that to be an option. Other people can hear my conversations and it’s very bothersome. I miss having the option between the two. Don’t fix something that isn’t broken please! Otherwise, there’s this constant bug with webcams/ turning on your camera. sometimes it never loads and you have to turn it off and on to get it to work properly. I’ve had to do this up to 3 times maximum to get it to work finally, which is nothing at first, but becomes annoying. Finally, (most likely not 100% discord’s fault, you can ignore this if you want) the connection seems to be getting worse. I used to love discord for the quality of the calls, but several times a week the quality becomes so bad that I have to restart the call several times to understand a sentence the recipient. The most common connection issue is definitely the that audio seems to skip out entirely for a few seconds sometimes. I understand that this could also be due to my own connection and the recipient’s connection, so take this with a grain of salt. Considering that, many times before there has been nothing wrong with our internet and this still happens.
Snewcomer22 - Please read this
From the very beginning, I have had numerous problems with this app. The only reason I am giving it two stars is because when it does work, it is phenomenal.
When I first got the app, it wouldn’t let me join the server I wanted to and said I was banned (even though I’d never used the app before). I re-downloaded the app recently because I was joining a clan and they required discord. I got the app and I was still logged into my old account, which was glitched, so I created a new one. I actually had to create that account on my browser because the app didn’t even let me do that. I created my account and tried to login on the app, no success. I’ve re-downloaded the app numerous times since then and still, no success logging in. Luckily, my browser still works and I use that to chat with my clan. Unfortunately, even when I turn my phone sideways, I can’t see all of the writing because it shows all the members of the group on the right hand side and it takes up half of the screen. Then, I have to read downwards one letter at a time and I don’t have the patience for that, especially with all of the scrolling it requires. If I could get on the app and not have to worry about that, I would have no complaints, but this simple fix is ruining the entire app for me. If you want people to use your app, they have to be able to create an account, but so far I haven’t had any luck with that.
Chicken nuggies 3826 - Issues/maybe add-ins
I love using discord, great to talk to friends on here, but i have one problem is that whenever I’m on call with my friends and I’m away from my phone either they wanna call a group chat or someone calls me I don’t hear it saying that this person or group chat name is calling me and I never know until I go to my phone and notice it later that someone call me or I have to manually go back to my phone and join the call, I don’t know if it’s just me but it’s been happening for a while and when I’m not in a call and off of discord and someone calls me I hear it saying that this person is calling me, just not when I’m already in a call, which it did before. Also I think maybe they could add in where we can record our private or group chat calls to like record for memories or something cause you’d always want to remember those moments and I know you can in servers but not in private calls, which I think it should, to record the funny moments going on and not just audio but maybe record when we turn our cams to cause we all be doing funny things and also for security too if someone calls someone in private chat and keep harassing a lot of people and need to record the audio or camera too incase if they do have their camera on and doing something wrong.
Fuqmyassunderarmor - No customer service
I will start this review by saying that I haven’t actually been able to use discord. I downloaded the app for a school class but when prompted to verify my number, it wouldn’t accept it because it was linked with another account. So, I went through the process of trying to find an account I had created years prior. In the meantime I contacted support and got a very quick robot response telling me to do exactly what I had just done. I found the old accounts and deleted them. However, that wasn’t enough. Apparently when you press delete on an account it takes an additional 14 days before discord actually deletes it. A day later, support for back to me and told me that I needed to send a copy of the error message I was receiving (even though I had already stated it in the last email). So I did. And a day later I still have received no response. I had to sort this issue out myself and eventually found that simply deleting the account wouldn’t remove the phone number associated with it. Finally to remove a phone number from an account I had to add ANOTHER email in the process - further convoluting the account issue. And finally, after 20 to 30 “account verifications”, 4 password resets, zero help from discord- I had access to a discord account. A whole 3 days later. All of this could’ve been resolved if I had access to someone at discord who knew a lick about user accounts and how to immediately delete them.
Opus' Sepulchre - Wonderful app from a member of the Discord Role-play Community!
Honestly, this app is what gets me through a lot of boredom in my day. It’s great, and even on the occasions there’s a problem, the devs tend to fix it rapidly with surprising speed. I use Discord to Role-play a lot, in fact it’s become my favorite pass time for the last year or so. The only thing I kind of wish was a bit better, is the character limit.
As a member of a few role-play servers I find myself often constricted by the 2000 character limit, especially considering I tend to write out 10K+ messages in google docs that I then post for characters that I role-play. As I’m sure is obvious, when I do several of these posts an hour the process of copying and pasting fragments of the messages becomes tedious. Not something that I generally hate, because with how wonderful discord servers are, allowing for many channels to be set up in ways that allow role-play servers to set up several settings, the limited characters per message is far outweighed in my preference. But, in a future update, if at all possible, I’m sure I, and the large amount of Novella Role-play members would certainly enjoy and appreciate an extended or unlimited message character limit.
I hate loading screens - Recent problems
I’ve been using discord for about 2 years now and recently I’ve been having multiple problems, be it screen share not working as intended and closing my application, over heating problems or discord closing while I’m in other apps. Usually I fixed these problems by just redownloading the app, but just yesterday it wouldn’t even let me open discord after redownloading it and so I thought “maybe it’ll work after I shut down my phone and it that doesn’t work I’ll wait until tomorrow.” Now today the app doesn’t open so I try redownloading it and it still does not open, (by the way when I mean the app doesn’t open, I mean that it gets stuck in a loading type animation and no matter how long I wait it seems to be infinite) so now I’m sitting here writing about the recent problems discord has been having and asking if the developers are even caring about mobile discord or is it really just a case where I should just get a mic and use discord on my pc.
Despite my 3 star score I’ve still used discord for 2 - 3 years and it’s always been working as intended and it’s worked well up until like 8 months ago. Maybe this is just a problem with my phone despite me having an iPhone XS Max, maybe it’s just an iOS side problem, but discord team keep up the work maybe you’ll find a fix.
Crazy cracie - This discord talent show should be shut down
So these people were making a discord talent show and when my sister was up she was in the middle of talking and they stopped her. They said “alright have a nice day thank you for coming!” And my sister was so sad. We actually arranged at this certain time to go to a talent show together and I was there to support them so they were gonna tell dad jokes together. So like they’re here calling me just upset and embarrassed sad, and I already reported the discord server. I’m livi#5618 reporting the server and can u please shut it down. Me and my friends weren’t the only one experiencing this bad disrespectful behavior, this guy was complaining about how they kicked his friend out and I heard them kick a lot of people out while they were talking. I’m just thinking: give them some time to talk! I reported livi#5618 that’s me, so I hope u the server I reported as well. I was super mad about it and right now I think they’re kicking out more people. Please shut it down and give them a warning because this behavior is not respectful and for the first time I hate one of these talent shows. I think a lot of people are upset about this to and honestly I’m not gonna accept this. I don’t know if they’re gonna make another one just shut it down please. Thank you!
Gorogokvi - Keeps crashing and marking unread messages as read.
I like Discord for what it offers, but the iOS app crashes randomly whenever I try to load a picture, gif, song, or other upload someone else posted, and crashes when I try to post pictures quite frequently. I know that a lot of people upload stuff, so the fact that it crashes as often as it does is a major concern for me.
Another issue is that the app has decided to randomly mark all messages in random chat channels as read when I open them, even though I’ve still got dozens to read before I reach the end of the string. Or I’ll be reading the messages, and suddenly it marked all messages as read, to include ones that happen while I’m reading, and not even remotely caught up. It happens randomly, so I don’t even know what might be the issue. It might happen to a chat every time I open it, or just once in a while but it’s a bug I want to see gone. Being tagged in a message, and then having that indicator removed randomly is an issue. I don’t always have time to read everything in one sitting, so I want to be assured that I can read it later. It is a major issue when it starts you over at the end of the conversation, and doesn’t save from where you had to leave off. (This is mostly for my admin duties on servers.)
I like that I have the ability to take Discord with me, but if I can’t use it half the time, then it’s like I don’t even have it at all.
Deco_Urchin - Great Website!
Discord has been incredible for me, I have been able to talk to and call friends, connect with new people, and it all has been very private and secure.
At first, I was a little bit superstitious when it came to discord. It did seem like a very open messaging service, leading to incidents with cyber bullies/child predators. Since getting discord, all of these worries have basically vanished. It is a high quality messaging and calling service (especially for large groups), and it can also serve as a way to meet new people. In my experience, I have stayed on private servers and direct messages with my friends, but I have still gotten a ton of usage out of the app.
I highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a nice voice calling or messaging service. I would also like to mention to any parents who are nervous to allow their kids to use this to at least give it a chance. If your child stays in groups with just his friends, they will be absolutely safe, and if they do go into a public server, I have found that people are generally very nice. Plus, if you do get into a situation that is uncomfortable, you can simply leave the group or block the caller.
I hope this helps!
Just Req - Amazing, with several missing opportunities
Discord is a great app, as I myself have been using it since 2018, and it hasn't given me any problems. However, there are some things I wish Discord had that it currently doesn't. Here's some I could think of:
-In servers it would be great if you could mention a role without the person(s) that have that role being notified (maybe a different prefix, like $).
-If, for example, I want to ping people with a certain assortment of roles, such as Moderators that are online at the moment, or Friends that are also Server Boosters. Some way to combine role pings to capture the attention of a more precise bracket of people would be nice.
-I'm in so many servers that it's extremely difficult to navigate through each of them, even with folders. I really think there should be an option to lower the size of server icons, and a new folder functionality, instead of appearing on the same row as others, servers in open folders would travel to the right of other servers, giving space to be able to see every server and navigate with ease
-Slightly similar to the previous point, but there should be an option to make channel tabs smaller. Same reason.
A PIMP who Loves JP/JW - Disabled My Account Because I canceled my nitro subscription!
I’ve used discord for a very long time, for 5 years and I really enjoyed using it until I my account had gotten disabled because I decided to cancel my 3 month free nitro subscription. I had canceled because I didn’t really have a need for the subscription. I was rarely on and never really used the perks of their nitro. I had canceled my subscription on September 22nd 2021 and didn’t think they were gonna charge me, but I had checked my bank account to find out they did. I waited a few days thinking maybe it was on an accident and they’ll refund me my money but I had seen they didn’t. On September 25th I had put the request for a refund and got approved. As soon as that happened my account was immediately disabled and I wasn’t able to access it anymore. I contacted discord support to see what the reason why and explained what had happened but they insisted that I had broke their terms of service because I didn’t let them charge me for a subscription I had canceled.
I had some of my best friends on there and was in a lot of really cool communities and it’s an utter shame that I will never be able to communicate with them again because of their poor customer service and api.
Don’t use discord, they’ll disable and ban your account because they have bad api and customer service won’t listen to what you have to say because they feel like it superior to you.
AnimeHokage - Great! Except for one thing…
This app is great! I gave the app a 5 star only so this could be seen, but I truly rate this a 3 But I give it that rating over one thing… THE PHONE NUMBER! Discord randomly asked me to put in my phone number in order to proceed so I did, when I finished that process I went right back over to delete the number because I did not want my number in my account. However when I did press “Remove Phone Number” It took me right back and said “Something’s fishy here, we need your Phone Number” So I realized I had no choice but to keep my Phone Number in my account. So, I put it in once again and then it said “This number can’t be used because it was used recently in another account” I was furious! Discord Devs, you’re not slick, this was basically you guys just saying “We don’t want you to remove your Phone Number, so yeah lol” That’s honestly not cool, you’re forcing people to put in their information they aren’t comfortable putting in! Others have been having this same problem, and some different reason why they don’t want their phone number in their account. This is not cool Discord Devs! Please remove this! Other than that… I love the app!
Kite_Kidd.0 - Suggestions for an already great app
I love the features, I often rescue kids from the Amino Communities and show them the quality differences for communication. There’s a lot of secret quirks you find out from other users and I think it’s a good way of differentiating newbs to the OGs. However with all of the cool things I’d like to be able to have a few features that I’ve seen in other apps added one day. For instance backgrounds for the channels ((could be nitro feature)) make it easier to submit transparent stickers on Apple mobile. I have to get on the PC site and it’s such a hardship when I have to mess around on the site that isn’t meant to be seen on mobile. And for the censors || || maybe keep people from screenshotting the message after you uncensor it. I’ve seen photo editing apps do it so I’m sure we could squeeze the feature into Discord. ALSO:: can we get rid of the emoji conversion? I’m pretty sure if someone wanted to send an actual emoji they would. Otherwise everyone probs want to stick to the keyboard aesthetic. Over all a sturdy and nice app once you get accustomed to it. As a newb things seem very cluttered and you just have to figure it out on your own :/
ColdCorndog.inc - The new discord update is gross
I’ve been using discord for almost a year now and it was chill and fun to use which it still is. I just can’t get over the new font they are using and the way they highlight pings now it’s so gross, and the logo is fine and all but the color is kinda wonky like it just doesn’t fit the theme for discord as well as the other one did. And I get it though they’re trying to make it marketable to tons of other groups (which it already was) but really what’s so wrong with the app being known for gaming? Come on. I still use the app cause it’s my main way of communicating and gaming with my friends but it’s just really throwing me off now. Before the update I would’ve given it a 4-4.5 cause there are quite a bit bugs and I think it’s annoying I can’t send my friends videos and pictures just because it’s a small bit too big, and if I wanted to send them videos of my dogs being cute I’d have to pay 5-14 bucks (because of tax) to do so, but that isn’t too bad. Anyway now because of the annoying fonts and all the bad things I’ve been hearing coming from the new update, I’m giving it a 2 but it’s an in general great app if you wanna meet to new people online and communicate with your friends. I believe this app has a place for EVERYONE, disboard is a common and easy place to find a server for you.
HibikiMehShipfu - Great, just a few problems.
This app is very very good but has some bugs...
One is if you tap on a msg to dm someone then go to user settings it bugs out and the message typing thing will be at the bottom of the user settings preventing me to access and leave the user settings and forces me to restart the app. Another bug I have with this app is that I’ve noticed whenever I join a call the app constantly makes my phones screen black as if it keeps constantly putting my phone to sleep. And my last problem is that I’m a nitro user and I constantly change my profile every now and then, and when I select the animated profile I want to use it displays it as if it were a normal profile picture and when I go to save it my profile picture won’t update.... I deleted the app and tried again and then it changed so it seems like I have to deleted and reinstall the app just to change my profile picture.
Nonetheless it’s a pretty nice app if you ignore the problems that it has as they are easy to ignore. The only problem that really bugs me is the blackout screen thing when I’m in a call with my friends my other friends have that problem too and we have no idea if there is a fix for it.
.,.,...,,plz read - Where is the customer service
The app itself is a 10/10, the mechanics are great, i’m able to chat with my friends for hours on end, it was overall an incredible time, UNTIL out of the blue “ your account has been suspended for violations against the discord terms and service”,OK what exactly did I do, “we will be investigating your account”. I emailed them, A bot responds “ The reason your account was disabled was because you violated the discord terms in service” OK, BUT WHAT DID I DO?????? “ you violated the terms and service”. Needless to say I lost about 20 friends because I can’t speak to them anymore.
In their eyes they see someone who’s completely ignoring their messages, it just won’t let me get in. I tried to log back in, and I had to take the robot verification test eight times before it stopped letting me take the test for “Rate Violations” which basically means you tried getting your password in too many times and now we’re not gonna let you do it anymore. The app itself is great, But be warned, your account might get disabled for no reason what so ever. Discord if you’re reading this (a real person that is) WHY IS MY ACCOUNT DISABLED??????????
Hsbebeheheh - Go back to the old style then having large words in your face.
In short, it's ugly af, and feels incredibly intrusive. The previous ui design was much nicer to look at, and much less in the way and in your face.
Please remove this asap, or change it to something more akin to the previous design. I'm seeing a lot of other people expressing dislike of it, so I hope that will help convince you to change it back.
On a side note: I'm someone who really needs empty space when using things. Not too long ago, Twitter completely updated their website, and in doing so removed a significant amount of empty space which was previously present. Until a plugin was developed to set it back to the previous design, I actually could not use the website. Something similar happened recently with Discord to a lesser extent, specifically with the friends tab. The recent addition of the "active now" section removed a lot of the empty space which was previously present, and as a result I can rarely use that tab without needing to look away or click something else immediately. This new update again takes away more empty space with the new ui changes, albeit to a notably lesser extent, but it's enough for it to instill at least some discomfort for me while using Discord.
Fluttershy311 - Severely disappointed with Discord Support
My account was hacked and during the two days it was hacked, three Nitro gifted subs were purchased by the hacker. Discord Support helped me get my account back, but even though I mentioned the false purchases when I explained in detail the whole situation, they didn’t pay any mind to that part at all or offer any solution to my financial dilemma. I didn’t know what to do, so I went to my bank provider and decided to get my money back that way. This was apparently against the Terms and Conditions, so they disabled my account. I tried to appeal by explaining the situation again, but all I got was a cookie cutter response that denied my appeal. I tried one more time; this time I offered to undo the chargebacks because the Discord email that informed me of my account being disabled said I could. I just wanted my account back even if it meant giving back money that was wrongfully taken from me in the first place. All I got was the exact same cookie cutter response denying my appeal.
Are bots running Discord Support? There seems to be zero empathy and zero reading of anything I said. From my POV, I’m getting punished by Discord for trying to get my money back that was stolen from me while using Discord. Although, I didn’t go about getting my money back the “right” way, this still doesn’t sit right with me at all. Now I lose my account of 5+ years. What a joke.
R0NIN707 - Fantastic on Mobile/Desktop, Needs to Be Ported to Other Platforms
Let me get one thing straight. I love using Discord as a platform for chatting with friends, playing games together, etc. There are a few minor bugs I could do without (the first one that pops into my mind is how if a message is sent almost exactly as I switch to another channel, flipping back to the first channel won’t get rid of the notification unless I switch off it and switch back), but overall, it works fantastically. I especially love being able to search up GIFs on mobile. That was definitely needed.
The only thing I’d request is that the team would bring the Discord app to other platforms; namely, console platforms. Currently, I can’t stream my console gameplay to Voice Channels because I can’t easily access Discord on console. While typing on a console keyboard would be a nightmare and a half, I imagine streaming and voice channels would work beautifully, as that’s exactly how party chats tend to work. I’d be willing to put up with getting out my phone to type quickly in a channel if I could join a Voice Channel and stream to it from my console.
Aften8 - read before downloading
I love this app i would give it a divendres star rating because of all of the amanint features it has but...if you are under the age of 13 this may not be the right app for you. There are mostly no blocks which can be good and bad. But if you are 13 or younger its not the best. Things can get Inapropiat really fast and yes there are blocks and limits but you have to activate most of them and the ones you do not have to activate are for if you PUT in that you are younger that 18 and most young users lie about their age so they have no limits. That may not be a problem for most but for some it can go down hill fast. One more reason i do not give this app five stars is because any one can get it and that is ok with most people but again if you are under 13 that is a big problem because you could be talking to a high school student when you are in elementry school. Or you could even be talking to a 60 year old man/women at the age of 8. Now again this app is a amazing but it could be dangerus for children and has no limits. And i do not want to give a bad revew because this app is great but it is dangrus for children and a play ground for Child predators. But again amazing app
NinjaGrande - Amazing on so many levels
I have been only using Discord for about 6 months and have loved it too much! I keep it open 24/7 to see what friends are playing and love chatting with them while we play games! I have loved all the fun features that Discord has to offer! You can create a massively public server or a small little server for your gaming peeps! Also, it is so easy to manage the server! Everything is so clear and easy to navigate when you own a server! I love it how you can customize the roles and have other people have higher roles and being in the group of people which everyone is! I love the things that you can do when you don’t even own a server like try and earn respect and climb up the ranks! It is like a little civilization that you are in with a bunch of other people! The settings and security of Discord is great! I love the fact that you can completely secure yourself and only allow messages from people you know or having the freedom to meet people! Plus what I have researched Discord is like unhackable! You can do so many things with Discord that it’s mind blowing! Anyone who is uncertain of getting Discord read above and just get it!
ColinZstar - Discord you need to see this
Right now I’m extremely mad and furious, you want to know why you may ask? Well I figure there is a lot of bugs in your app that you may not know of. First I made a discord account that I loved with a group and a lot of a friends, I also was attending groups and having fun until I was wanting to invited people to my group. It showed up a picture saying this “Somethings going on here” it also says this “we’ve detected something out of the ordinary going on. To continue using discord, we will need you to verify you account” so I was like no big deal right? So I did everything. I put in my number, I put in the verification number, until it got down to my password. I was like “oh I know my password in a heart beat. So I put the password in. It was correct to I thought when I hit done it will bring me back to the page with my friend. When I hit done, it brought me to are you a robot thing. So I did the task and I was done so I hit verify. And guess what... I hit done again.. it loaded.. and did nothing. I was having a full panic attack. So I deleted the app and did the whole thing over again. Yes all over again. Same thing happened. So I don’t know if it’s a bug or you guys want people to get so angry. So if u get things please update or do something so you don’t get other people mad to. Thank you..?
JGuard1 - What Once Was Fun…
…has now become far less so for me.
As a writer by hobby, I love using a Bluetooth keyboard with my iPad, making it easier to type up documents, messages and such without having to lose the tactile effect of a real keyboard. However, the most recent updates to this app, which I used to communicate with a small group of friends, have brought a crushing blow to my enjoyment of it. Up until recently, when using my Bluetooth keyboard, I could hit the “Enter” key to send messages, but now… now it only causes a line break into a new paragraph in a message, which used to be tied to the Shift+Enter combination exclusively. And there is no button in the settings menu of the iOS app to change this.
I could easily forgive if this update aspect had simply swapped the functions of Enter and Shift+Enter, but removing the “Enter to send” functionality entirely? No. This is an absolutely appalling decision on the part of the developers, and I would strongly urge them to change it back, or else give users the option to choose whether to use it or not, and/or to what key or key combination they would rather bind the function. Otherwise, many users who, like me, have developed a muscle memory to hit Enter to send messages will continue to have a problem with what was once a glorious app.
Dear pixel gun - Good on PC but on mobile...
Perfect on PC, well... the camera mode on PC nearly broke my PC and broke my discord, so I had to delete it. So I used the online version and it does work and so when it was broke on my PC I was trying to fix it but I gave up after a while, so I downloaded it on mobile to be able to talk to my friend because he can’t call or text. So I go on the mobile version of discord and I like to talk to him and the sound is broke. I can hardly hear him, so I turn up the volume, doesn’t work, turn up the discord volume, doesn’t work, and finally I turn up his volume so I can hear him better, (and you wouldn’t guess this) IT DOES NOT WORK. Only then do I find the online, but I do want to play with him when I’m not at my house and I hope it works this time. The only reason I gave it 5 ⭐️’s because it helps me reach my friends that I can’t call or text and it works well when I don’t use the camera, and I could get in contact with online friends that I don’t know irl without giving to much information but I get to talk with them. I hope to get a developer response explaining why I had problems.
Kio Shi - TL;DR Too Many Updates
I love Discord, it has helped me in so many ways, gaming, interpersonally, working, I have used it with so many aspects in my life and I probably will continue to use it until my friends and I move on to a different service. I enjoy being able to send an instant message and edit it if I need to add or correct something, I like that it can be personalized with an emoji or the like and servers bring communities together. My only complaint is now with so many updates, gone is the simplicity, gone is the uniqueness of the service and in comes being like everything else. Every update it seems less to do about giving to the users and becoming more about business. And every year incompatibility issues arrise. What’s messed up now? Notifications, Voice Calls disconnecting when trying to multitask or random disconnects, Streaming requiring more and more resources, even Discord itself becoming more of a social media platform than an instant messaging/gaming integrated app. Maybe it’s just me but, personally I don’t exactly like where Discord is headed, and I’ll probably see everyone in the next platform, whatever it may be. The next “Myspace/Facebook”.
Everett James - Simply the best
I started to use discord around a year ago, with that said I use it for everything, I own a few gaming teams and it is so nice to communicate with other team members, other teams, etc etc, I also use discord to communicate with friends, teammates ( especially in games where a mic is not supported ) discord does not affect my frames which is something I enjoy, I can still play my favorite games with discord open without sacrificing graphics or frame, I also have a few servers which I moderate and using bot support I can easily put up chat filters to prevent people from using certain words that may be deemed inappropriate, setting discord up was surprisingly easy and I had no trouble what so ever, I have never been let down by discord either, there servers have never been down allowing me to always communicate the quality is purely amazing, for any game devs out there I would use this as this app allowed my favorite developers to host polls, show updates, and even do giveaways, simply put this is the best way of communication for any devs, gamers, or fans, and even friends and would highly suggest that you get this app
Dxalringg - Suggestion: Please Read.
Hello there ‘Discord’, I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Now, this app has always been amazing. I’ve never really had a problem and to do this day no complaints. Complaints and suggestions, two things often misunderstood. But I am here to say I am not making a complaint. All i suggest is that we have the same options as computer users. I’d like to change my game status on my mobile phone because obviously i’m not able to take my computer just anywhere with me. The games mode isn’t available in the app or web login unless it’s on the computer. It slightly bums me out but since discoed has always been such a great app
i overlook it. I think everyone would be happy if the game status option would be on mobile as well. Playing on the go IS a thing. Why not add it for us too? All in all that is my suggestion, the ability to change my game status on mobile just like in my computer. Yes, I understand that this may take time. But it is worth waiting for and I know you and your team can accomplish it. Thank you for reading and have a great rest of your day.

Fkeglyzlhzltal - The worst form of social media
Out of all of the social media platforms I’ve tried, discord I would say is the most toxic of them.
And it’s not because the employees and staff working at discord are mean, or anything, it’s because of the nature of the setup discord chooses to use. Essentially when you join a server, the guidelines you have are the ones the owner sets for you. Larger servers are often governed by mods. But the problem is that these mods generally don’t have too many qualifications to be a moderator. And when the mods are ineffective at creating a safe environment, that’s when toxic behavior thrives. Discord does have some policies, on its ToS but these are generally very simple rules, and are few and far between. I’ve had many terrible experiences on servers where toxic behavior is present and the mods either do nothing about it or they take the wrong course of action. Now this isn’t something discord has much control over, but rather design of the website in it’s entirety is flawed. I wouldn’t recommend this app to people who who are not in a healthy state of mind, or to anyone in general. However I guess discord works for some people and if you find that this style of social media works for you then by all means download it. But do be prepared for possible toxic behavior thrown your way.
Jualter - Mobile app has issues
Discord works great on a desktop computer/laptop, other than finding the right chat room and general navigation issues like getting a message noise but never seeing the message because you were in a voice chat room. Could use a redesign. Like why isn’t voice just enable in the same chat room so there’s no switching back and forth?
However, this review is for the mobile app. It doesn’t work. Every time I do so much as sneeze (another app notification/text message comes in, if I get a phone call, etc.) the app stops working. I get that the voice should stop but after switching apps and coming back or after ending the phone call, the Discord app never recovers and must be restarted, rejoin the room, and then it works...for a while. Until almost anything else happens. Worst of all, when my phone falls asleep, so does Discord, sometimes. It’s unpredictable when I’m just randomly disconnected from Discord. My friend reported his phone calls not coming through when he’s on a Discord voice channel. Not sure which problem is worse.
I’d highly recommend using a different app. Often, my friends and I just use a phone conference call. And I can send a text message while on a phone call. So how does this app improve my gaming other than taking bandwidth from my gaming?
Akward dream - My accounts
My main discord account just magically signed me out and i know the password but it said it didn't work so i register and trembling because i lost all my friends, but then it magically signed me out again, i quit using discord, my account ElliottLian#4141 remains dead and never work, if you read this discord please bring my account back, or saying the token expired because i tried making a new password for my main discord account but it never works and another attempt it said token expired, i keep waiting and finally doesn't say token expired, and when i made a new password for my main discord account and remembered it, i was in a joyful mood, ready to login. But when i did, it just said it didn't work, i put it correctly and never work. I was crying, never meeting my friends I've met a long time ago when i started discord. I miss them, discord ruined my relationships with other people. If your reading this discord, please don’t mess this up for other people, you might ruin their day. Also, if you get a chance to revive my account send me a dm in gmail so i can see. You have ruined all my relationships. Good bye discord, its nice having you for a long time, but its time for me to go to another path of light, where it will never crap itself. Goodbye, Discord.
Staceyann39 - great app
discord is a great app to interact with your friends and I’d loved to give this app 4 stars but I’m giving it 4 due to the voice chat issue the voice chat needs works you have to leave call and come back because something happens and you can’t hear the others or they can’t you. So leaving and coming back is only A temporary fix to the problem but happens multiple times through the call it gets to be annoying. other issues is it at times call cuts out when ppl are talking and you can’t hear what they are saying and they have to repeat their self sometimes to understand what they are saying. seem to have connection issues so if you improve the voice chat that would be awesome being you talk to ppl all over the world be nice to be able to have a conversation without it cutting out and being able to understand what everyone is saying but when it is actually working it’s so wonderful to get to have a nice Conversation with all your friends. this goes for voice chat and also discord private calling. so if you could please look into this and fix the problem that would wonderful! thank you 😊
Ezephel Roman - Best app so far.
As for all of the reviews claiming for this app to be bug filled and laggy, it’s not an issue as of discord itself. It’s a personal user mistake and wifi connectivity problem. I have been using discord for years, about six now, and I have never had an issue with lag or bugs. Even with all of the new updates.
Only once has the calling been unavailable but that was because discord put it on hold to fix a connectivity issue, since discord calls aren’t the clearest out there.
I would definitely recommend this app to friends and family to keep in contact. I’ve created a whole community on discord and brought many people together, even saved lives. And I’m not being dramatic. This app gives people a way to vent and learn new things, meet new people, make connections.
I met the love of my life on this app and now we live together in person, in our own apartment! I’ve never been more happy. And before you call me some old nerd with a joy for gaming, I’m actually not a gamer, and I’m only 18 years old. (:
I recommend discord! It’s helped me through so much!
Yoowoon - A suggestion:
I’ve noticed that Discord has made an update where: You can change your avatar banner (If you have Nitro). And I wanted to come up with another suggestion, that i’ve been thinking about. I think there should be a feature (this is about the avatar/profile pictures) where you can click on your pfp, when changing it. And have a feature where you will see two tabs, the first one that says: "Files" (meaning you can go into your photos from your device and change you pfp, into any picture). And the second tab that says: "Photos" (where it shows, what photos you had set as your pfp before, and can scroll through them and find the one that you want to change into again). This makes it easier to find what photos I had as my pfp. Because It’s hard trying to find the photo that I want, when I already had set it as my pfp before. This feature is similar to Googles. As the banner feature seems to be a bit similar to Youtubes. I hope this does become a feature, because I feel like it’ll be very helpful!
GodOfPhail - Maybe it’s Me
Let me start by saying that I’ve used the mobile app before and had no issues previously. However, ever since I switched to my iPad Air 4th gen, I hav heard nothing but problems with the app. For one, I can’t use it while it’s in the background. Before, I could use the app while doing other things, such as using the internet browser. Nowadays, if I leave the app, everything on my end stops working. I can’t hear anyone speaking, my mic doesn’t pick up my voice, nothing works. This problem persists even if I disconnect and reconnect. Most annoyingly this problem will persist even if I restart the app. The only solution I’ve found is to restart the entire tablet.
The above is already problem enough but I figured if I just stay on the app without leaving, I wouldn’t have the same issues. Nope, I still encounter the above issues after a certain amount of time with no reason for it. The only reason I’m not sure if it’s discord or my iPad Air is that I don’t encounter these same problems on a different iPad. It’s only on my iPad Air do these problems occur. But I have tried everything from updating both the app and the iPad, to deleting the app and reinstalling. Nothing has worked and I’m stuck with the problems.
TokyoTobio - Great so far, but add updates for mobile.
It’s an amazing app! There’s just some things that I hate, like add some mobile updates? The updates you guys add to pc should also head to mobile too. After all, it’s an amazing app I recommend you guys to download it. I have just saw that you guys just made the app 17+, coming from a 15 year old I think you guys should make it back too like to 13+ because people older then 13 have already downloaded it (like me). Also think you should allow us to type more then the limit of 2000 it gets very annoying, for example your gonna write a paragraph for someone and it’s very important and it’s about 5000 word long. Even though it has some issues, very amazing app and I’m always on there for like 8 hours a day to talk with friends and stuff! I’m always making servers In discord, but I think you should really do something about those hyphens and get rid of it so we can have our own fonts to add and watch out for what you do to your app, because people underage are now faking there age and when they were born, I once saw my 8 year old sister in discord! Please watch out.
XxAlexisWillsXx - It could’ve been better..
It’s actually a really good app but once I accidentally Unfriended someone and couldn’t send them request again cause I did not know their tag number , I wish we could see our Unfriended people list but I can’t even when I got the discord data package I even tried emailing the support team but they did not even reply to emails, and still I try to contact that person who is very important to me but I don’t get any response because I know that person always uses discord but yea.... Or instead of showing the unfriended people list I wish we could just search the user or a feel letters of a user and then there could be a lot of users with tag numbers instead of user name and tags number to send that person a friend request but when you search some person up any user with the similar name it still doesn’t show up , and you can’t even have your own profile so others can see who you are and if they want to send a friend request. Id anyone knows anything about the user Superskillz or I think superskills please let me know send me a friend request in discord UnicornLady#0248 thanks bye
GreatestDownfall - My Favorite Social App, But...
I’ve been using Discord for about a year and half now, the app for maybe a year. They’re been a lot of improvements since then that I was happy to see. The CallKit was definitely not one of them. I wish there was an option to at least disable it. I don’t like my Discord calls showing up in my history. I don’t like Discord calls ringing on my phone like a normal call.
Also, I’ve had a lot of audio problems since it was added. My alarm goes off? Can’t hear or talk anymore, have to leave and rejoin the call. Someone calls my phone? I can’t just mute my mic and answer anymore. I have to hang up. And even if I decline the call? Audio problems. Can’t hear. I also hardly ever get proper notifications anymore. People send me messages, but I don’t realize I get them because the sound doesn’t go off while I’m in a call. A few times I just never got a notification at all. And I’ve missed a lot of calls because Discord never rang.
I actually like the new update that lets you choose whether or not to use speaker. I was sad to see the option go, so I’m glad it’s back. Wish speaker was default though. Still, it’s nice to have the option.
Yodlerboi - Pretty much amazing. But...
This app/service is incredible. It’s aloud me to communicate with people without pumping up the phone bill. It lets me communicate with groups of people and meet new people that I never would have. I love this app. The servers, the (majority of) people, the bots, all of it. Now here’s the but (This is just a single bug though so don’t be scared out of getting this app because of what your about to read, it’s truly worth the (free) buy.) Recently, I’ve been having a particularly annoying issue with discord on iPhone. I don’t know if it’s on any other devices or types of devices but it’s at the very least happening to me. When in calls, the screen on my phone will shut off for a time between 2 and 30 seconds. This happens at random intervals and seems to happen less (though still) the further I get into a call. Even when outside of the discord app with the call going in the background, the screen can still shut off. This is my *sole* issue with this app however. If you don’t have discord, get it. Can’t recommend it enough!
I <3 lizzards - Please help
Discord is a great alternative to other apps, I got it because I was in a group and that group required you having Discord, and at first it was really complicated but then I got a hang of things. The problem started randomly, what would happen is whenever I open Discord it goes completely black, like the first time this happened I literally thought my IPad died, but nope. I closed the application, and on the screen, it showed “discord” but the app screen was almost empty discord was going very faint, and I can’t do anything on discord, I deleted it and reinstalled it multiple times. Still, nothing changed, idk what to do now, because when my clan is hosting a training or a patrol to get promoted, we NEED to be in Voice Chat. This has been limiting my ability to be a active member in my clan, the only way I can use Voice Chat or chat or other servers is by using my phone. But using a iPad to play games, and a phone to communicate is really hard. Other than this I have had no problems whatsoever. This would have been a five star but this issue has made things VERY difficult. Please Help.
Ley0301 - Pretty Good
All in all, it's a great app. In fact, I'd say it's nearly perfect on PC. However, there are some features on PC that you can just not access on mobile. For example, you can't change privacy settings to turn off DMs on a certain server, which can be a struggle for people with, uh, fans. Another thing is that you can't change somebody's role on mobile, which is very aggravating. I'm a moderator on a server and we have a specific role to give to misbehaving people which prevents them from sending messages. But, I can only do my job as moderator if I'm on my PC, because mobile won't let me change roles. In addition, for whatever reason, certain pictures refuse to upload, and it’s not the channel settings because it’s only with certain pictures (only on mobile). The last thing I recommend, which is currently neither on mobile or PC, is having some version of read receipts for DMs. I know that's probably gonna be controversial, but I personally know that some of my friends are big YouTubers, so they get caught up, and forget. However, if I was able to tell if they'd read my message, I'd be able to yell at — er, uh, talk to them about it.
Dhsgshahjdbs - Nice app, but confusing
I have relied on Discord for my game clan’s chat outside of the game. It’s been a nice, stable platform over the years, so I’m very happy with its stability.
..... I do have some complaints, though. It is so hard for me to figure out how to do almost anything! Over the years, the developers have made numerous updates... but never, it seems, toward making basic functions more user-friendly. It’s as if they cannot believe anyone would not find the learning curve a joy.
..... I realize that I am slower than a lot of people to learn things with computer programs. But I also notice that no one in our group, if they do know how to do something, has ever found it easy to explain how to do it to others.
...... And there are some very basic things that NO ONE in my 30 member group can figure out. How do we create a new room within our channel? Shouldn’t this be as simple as adding a new folder in a file system? We’ve been using Discord over 3 years, yet no current member can figure out how to do this.
..... In terms of ease of use, Discord is a mess. I have to deduct 2 stars for that reason alone. I would give 5 stars if things were reasonably easy to learn.
Amyzthesht - Amazing app, one suggestion though. Please read.
I absolutely love this app. Finding a gaming partner is way easier using this! I’ve actually found a group of people that I frequently game with and talk to that I honestly really love. My experience this past year has been really amazing, and without trouble. However, only one thing really annoyed me in my time using discord. When you want to leave a server you’ve created, you have the option to pass ownership to someone you trust or someone that’s qualified. It isn’t the same for group chats, though. If I had created a group chat, and had to leave, I would also want to pass the ability of owner to someone trusted, but it randomly picks a member to make the new owner. As the owner, I think I should be the one making that choice. Because even though I absolutely love my discord friends, some of them tend to abuse the power of owner chaotically, and I don’t want to be added back into that kind of environment. Leaving a group chat you and wanting to be added back soon just leads to you crossing your fingers and hoping someone worthy got the crown.
BPBottoms - Passwords are the worst
Don't get me wrong, this is a great app. However, I highly doubt discord knows how to manage passwords. So I wanted to make a new account and use the same email address from my old account. So I try to do this, and I already know discord loves to shove verification down my throat. So I'm like "ok this should be quick," and oh boy was I wrong. So I put in my email address and my password, but it gets declined. So I'm like "that's weird, I coulda sworn I typed it in right," so I try again. Doesn't work. So I try to use my yahoo account I've had for at least five years. Password is declined. I have never in my life had problems with my yahoo password so I just think "ok let me just try my phone"
And I do that and try to put in my discord password (which I had next to me on some paper) and it was declined. Now I can't access discord. And if discord wants to respond to this, don't give me that "Aw shinkledinks, it looks like a Springle has a rough day and doesn't have enough magic powder to snort" that you are sadly infamous for. Like, at least allow me to view my password in letters or numbers at least. I would love an update where signing into discord isn't a multi-hour ordeal

Emma Rose 😇 - This app changed my internet life for the better!!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
To start off my journey of discord, my friends really wanted me to get it, so I eventually listened to them, and I’m really glad I did. I friended my friends and started chatting to them and eventually made my first server. I have now made three and I am in 6 (including my own). I have met amazing people in this, including people I don’t know in real life. I don’t friend those people, but I still talk to them in other servers. As soon as I got the hang of discord I gave up messages/messenger completely, apart from one part. Sometimes, I have to use messenger/messages to send videos to my friends because the “file is too big.” I really want this to get fixed because it means I can’t send these videos to people that I am friends with in discord but aren’t in my contacts, and it’s also a hassle. Apart from this one small flaw, this app has changed my internet life for the better, and everyone should download it, rate it five stars and tell their friends to go and download it, because this app deserves more glory than it gets.
IT'S EARTHWORM SALLY - Great app but very annoying when it comes to files...
I love this app, I couldn’t get enough of it when I got it. I would spend practically all my day on it. But the one really annoying thing is that I use discord for projects and stuff that involve video’s and photo’s. I used up my files space within this first few days of having the app so it practically made it impossible for me to do these projects. Most of these projects involves art and animating and, of course, I couldn’t send and photo’s or animations to anyone. The only other salutation was to buy nitro and as everyone know that is very expensive and as a 13 year old I didn’t have the expenses to pay for it. I tried to delete some photo’s that I had sent to try and get some of my file space back but nothing worked. Maybe make it so that nitro is less expensive or make it so that people have more file space. Thank you for listening to my concern!
SB_Ockley - Why I used to love Discord but still use it.
When my best friend first introduced me to discord I was very sceptical, I was using messenger at the time and didn’t see a need to have a second messaging app. After a while of pestering, my friend eventually convinced me to download it. It was to my surprise that Discord was very different to messenger, it had the core features of a messaging app but soo much more. It was the fact that you could own and manage your own personal channel that I really fell in love with. Immediately I felt a great sense of community and social acceptance. I met a bunch of new friends and saw a bunch of great memes, all was good for a long time.
Then Discord added the news tab, and started to become more like a game store than a social platform. And that’s what really annoys me about it, I still continue to use it because I have soo much invested in Discord, but every time I launch the app I have to look at promotions for games and ads everywhere, I don’t want that, I have enough applications that do that already. I don’t want my the social hub that I use to relax and talk to friends to also be a market place for games and other stuff.
Jojofoulk - It’s a cool app
What can I say... the app is great and looks cool 😎, the bugs get fixed (probably by fixing them, good job coding peeps) the improvements to the app make it better and that’s not a given, and the update logs are a source of puns and funny comments. The app is great to be apart of a community, have a group chat with friends (over some games) or to talk with distant relatives because teleportation isn’t available yet in this patch of Life. Now if only light theme could disappear, that would be great. I recommend gradually changing the white theme to dark theme, going through a few shades of grey (more than fifty tho) they won’t notice a thing if the transition is done smoothly :^)
But yeah, discord is a solid 5/5, the Discord team did (and is still doing) a great job with this app. Buy it (for free) to be cool today (I mean you can also pay to be extra cool but you don’t have to (you’d be extra cool tho, which is cool))
StonKss | PanDa - Great app!!
About 2 years ago, one of my friends desperately wanted me to get discord, basically to the point of him downloading it on my laptop. At the time I thought it was unnecessary as I could just use Skype to connect. I have to say, I was wrong. Discord is a great app, you can tell it has been made with gamers and the meme community in mind. It looks great aesthetically and runs well. I can’t imagine the amount of time I’ve been on call playing games like Counter Strike and having a lot fun. Additionally, the inbuilt bots like Pokémon and slotbot (just to name a few) add another aspect to the platform and make servers much better. Truly the gamers platform.
I really think playing games with friends make games 10 times better.
Discord makes connecting with friends easy to use, efficient and all-round amazing!
AceNya - A serious lack of settings.
Hey! Great app. Thoroughly enjoy using discord, the view is quite pretty and I usually get all my notifications. I just have one issue.
The settings leaves much to be desired.
Unlike the desktop application, which has everything you need, there are a lot of settings missing from the mobile version! Want to turn off automatic emoji conversion? You’re gonna have to go find your laptop for that one, buddy. It’s annoying and time consuming.
I also have an issue with uploading photos. I’m not sure what it is, but sometimes I try to send an image in a chat and it comes up with an error message saying ‘under 8mb, please’ or something of the like. It’s been like this for multiple different things (screenshots, photography, etc.) but for some reason the same thing doesn’t happen upon taking a screenshot of the error message and sending that? Weird. Please fix both of these. Much appreciated.
Where is 1.14 - Let me use this stupid app!
Let me just say this app id excellent for calling mobile and other! It has a variety of amazing features and qualities. But, as good as this app is it does have its flaws... Firstly it keeps on logging me out of my account saying 'somethings going on here'. Although this is to rid bots and other things its annoying because it keeps on doing it to me just whenever i have three people im not friends with in my dm's, but i just have people in my dms because there my friends that im waiting for them to accept my friend request. This makes me have to create an entirely new account and try to contact my friends with them. Ive made about 6 accounts so far and all of them have logged me out if. This was so annoying because i wasn't doing anything wrong so i just quit discord. This wasn't the only flaw. Whenever i tried changing my profile picture it made the profile the corner of the picture i chose. This too made discord very annoying! Overall i would not recommend this app to anyone who cant verify their account, though if they are able too then i would recommend it.
DxrkSoul - Please fix this bug discord :(
So at first, I was calling my friends on this amazing app as usual but then suddenly I couldn’t hear anything and I went to check what had happened to the call. For some reason, the app made me leave the call for no reason! It was probably a bug so I just rejoined the call.. but then after a day or few it got even worse! Every time I call and play games at once the call just stops and I would have to leave the game and rejoin it. I got so annoyed one day so I decided to try to find out what’s going on and how to fix it. But nothing worked.. I tried deleting the app and download it back but that did work, so I tried to restart my discord and that didn’t work. Please! Discord please! Fix this bug it is very annoying and if this doesn’t get fixed then I might have to use another messaging app. Other than that, discord is amazing.
Pikminjamie - This is buggy and it needs to be fixed now.
No more sitting around on your asses, Tumblr support team. Oh wait, this is Discord - yeah well you’re acting like Tumblrs support team (who are lazy and awful, by the way). What is going on with this app? Why is it that this application is so behind in terms of production as opposed to the desktop application, or heck, even the website! Really think about it; Discord was made not just for “gamers” but also as a new way to communicate with each other. And I gotta say, things like the custom emojis REALLY emphasise the greatness that makes Discord DISCORD.
Oh hang on... why can’t I... why can’t I upload custom emojis? Why can’t I view the list of emojis? What? Come on, guys... this is a MOBILE APPLICATION! The thing that was designed for communicating with people from a longer distance than the other room! But you gotta make the desktop application far superior in every way? Ridiculous.
I’m EXPECTING an update sometime THIS YEAR that fixes this. As a HypeSquad member, I will not tolerate this. Fix it.
MasterMods - Improved call feature?
I love discord, I think it’s great that there is an app focused to the needs of gamers and it’s the only app I need to communicate with my friends. However, in the recent update for iOS I found the new call features when putting your phone to sleep prevents me from getting discord notifications (and maybe others, I haven’t tested). It’s cool that you can integrate the call feature with iPhones but I’m looking for an option to turn it off. So far I’ve found a way to prevent the app from creating the call that is recognised by the iPhone; simply close the app completely while in the call, then reopen the app. It should connect you to the call automatically, but if you press the home button before the call has finished authenticating, it will go back to being a normal discord call, the same as before the update.
Ugh ugh anoying - I LOVE DISCORD!!!
I really like discord, I can talk to my friends all the time and call them while I play my games, but there ARE a few bugs, like sometimes when I get onto discord it will only show chat above like 4 lines of text so I’m unable to speak, meaning I will have to close the app and then open it again, it’s infuriating but I won’t really mind it a lot. I have a suggestion, maybe a few mini games in discord because your friends don’t have the same games as you, mini games like that dinosaur on google or maybe a short game of Pac-Man, I understand that we can use bots like the akinator bot to play akinator but in personal DMs we can’t add bots, or not that I know of, but besides that it’s a great app I like to use and I can make so many new friends!

Gdheycj - Future Improvements
The platform is one of the best platforms currently in this generations and quite possibly future generations too, but that will require more improvements, which is why the 4 stars. A recommendation would be to add like a favourite list for dms or a grouping system like the one for servers and I strongly believe this will help the platform to become better as we can favourite the people and/or GDM we interact with more and can find them easily instead spending time scrolling through to find them. Having the favourite list category at the top with all the people and/or GDM we favourited or the same sort of system with the servers. And maybe a sorting system, like “Recents”, “A-Z”, “Z-A”, “DM > GDM”, “GDM > DM”, just to name some at the top of my head. Thank you for reading this and hope to see some more future improvements in the future by the Discord Team and the Discord Community!~
Bineth G - It’s perfect except for max file size
This app is so good for talking with your friends and joining communities through servers. It has voice chats and different chats to ease sorting that other apps lack. I mainly use discord to talk to my friends because it’s just so convenient, it has dms, group chats and servers. The only downside to discord is the maximum file size of 8mb! yeah you heard that right, 8mb! Unless you have discord nitro which you have to pay for. This isn’t a problem for sending photos but for videos, oh my lord. Sometimes a 5 second video is too big! I would have given this a 4.5 but the App Store only allows to go up and down 1 stars (which is a bit dumb) so I decided to go 4 because there is still a major fault, the max upload size. Other than that the app is flawless in my eyes.
Moogs97 - Functional but frustrating
Discord works well. The app does everything I need and want, group voice calls work flawlessly with almost no issues, and the design is fairly user-friendly. As other reviews stated, the notifications leave a lot to be desired. It's a bit annoying that I miss some notifications that I need, and that I get bugged about servers I have muted, but my biggest gripe is the notification grouping.
You'd assume when opening a notification, it would dismiss, at a minimum, the notifications of all other messages from that chat.
Instead I have to manually clear all notifications out of the notification centre everytime. It's handy that it doesn't assume that I have read every single message on all my servers (looking at you, FB messenger), but it seriously bugs me having hundreds of messages sitting on my lock screen, despite having read them all.
Nanocaar - Great, just one thing to add.
Discord is a great app, but there are 2 things I hope you add ^^
First is, I’m in a lot of voice acting projects. I always have to download files (me being an animator) and they’re always wav, mp3, or mp4 files. I have to go on pc to download them, since you can’t save them on iOS.
Second, I hope in a different update we’ll be able to set profile pictures or server icons to transparent, instead of having to go on pc or google chrome to do that. On iOS, it just has a black screen where the transparent part is meant to be.
BUT; it’s an amazing app with that aside. I love how you can pin messages so you can look at something when you need to remember a note or something, I find it really helpful when I need lines for voice acting.
I also love the feature where you can edit and save permissions on a server’s channel, so you can make it where only special members can send pictures, and muted people can’t talk.
But I do wish for groupchats to have more features, like audit logs. It’s a little unnecessary but someone in my groupchat keeps unpinning important messages and it’s getting annoying. I want to find out who did it.
Zahra. I - Sooo good
This app is sooo good, it does sometimes glitch but then p it goes back to normal, I love to talk and call friends and it is so child friendly, for me it never has any adds but if I could fix one thing about it, it would be for it not to glitch but altogether I recommend this app if you want to talk to friends with the feeling of safety that you will not be hacked.
I say you should for sure download this app bc I have made new friends that are extremely nice, also it is so good for people who live in Melbourne bc you get to talk to people in servers and meet new people and you can become really good friends with them
Download this app it is soo good ( and I know I have said this aloud already but still) it is sooo good and fun to talk and call people on. 😊✌️❤️🍀
TheBestArizel - Great, but these notifications omg
The app is wonderful and full of features that other chats don’t have, but one thing that’s really on my nerve as of late is the in app notification banner. It used to be amazing and slid away when I opened the server list... but now, when I swipe right to open the server/dms list, if there’s a notification for another server I’m not engaged with at the time, it blocks access to the dm or first server on the list and I have to swipe upwards to remove it. What makes it worse is that it backs up, so if there’s multiple notifications, when one is swiped away, another immediately replaces it’s space. Please, revert the banner to how it worked before; a thing that moved across out of the way when you opened the server list so it didn’t interfere with opening dms and servers
Peyton Potato - It's Great, But...
Nitro. No, no, before you 'ugh' at me, call me 'cheap' and say the creator is trying to make money, wait.
Nitro is fine, I don't care about it except the fact that it limits video sizes. Me and my friend have no other way of communicating, which I know isn't the creators fault, but since its meant for gaming... it ties in with our GAMING channel (which, sub to...jk lol) . We try to send videos and stuff to each other to do collaborations and such, such, which we usually can't and eventually have to download a whole other app, post it, view it, download the part, delete the app,... when it could be done a lot easier just by using Discord. Every other part of the app is fantastic, and I love how it's a social media app, yet there are no followers and it feels like normal message apps such as iMessage.
Eserjsns - Amazing
I have Ben using discord since 2017 and have loved it ever since the app is very convenient and so easy to use, I love the fact that you can mute people as well aha!! But over all it’s really good I definitely recommend it, There’s just one thing I think the discord team could add that would make the chat a whole load better and it would be very good if you guys added a feature where you can see the first message of a group chat or a private message..I have a group that’s been active for 4 years now and it takes ALOT of scrolling to get to our first messages, My friends and I would probably love to see what we were up to those days,But over all very good app so grateful I have it
CJaBlaze - Definitely worth your time
Discord is a great app. If you’re bored in quarantine, or whenever, it’s really fun to hang out with your friends without the mics cutting out, the audio is really good, and the camera during video calls is really nice. Servers really connect people and i think it’s one of the best things about discord. And if you don’t know what discord is, definitely get the app, it’s really nice and, well, addicting. This is not your ordinary social media platform. This is much better. Even if you aren’t a gamer, it’s so fun to just be with your friends, i definitely recommend this over Skype, teamspeak, facetime, or whatever you use, i guarantee discord will make you regret using those apps all those years.
Bubbleninegamer21 - One glitch that I have now
I RLLY love this app so much however, now I have a glitch I can’t get rid of on mobile. It all started a few hours ago when everytime I was in a priv call, it would disconnect me from the call entirely after 5 seconds (as in it makes me leave the call but everything else is fine). It’s been happening and I don’t know how to fix it. It’s so annoying too so now I have to use my computer for it. Can u guys pls fix this glitch? Cause it’s annoying getting yourself removed from the call every 5 seconds. I don’t know whether it affects public voice chats tho but I think it does too. Just please fix this for mobile. On pc my disc is fine
ALT_Rag3 - Amazing!
Firstly, I just want to say I love this app! It’s so handy and unlike Apple text messages, it uses less storage. But since I’m on mobile I have a few problems that I’d like to address.
1. How come there’s no screen share on mobile? It’s okay if you can’t, but I’m quite curious as to why you can’t do this. Are phones and tablets just not fast enough and it might crash?
2. Again, mobile is missing something PC has. Why is there no noise suppression on iPad? I saw on phone they added some cool stuff like a phone symbol next to the avatar and background noise suppression. But iPad is yet to have these. Is it you or have I not updated it?
3. This one is for laptops instead but it’s still worth mentioning. When I was using a laptop, I noticed that there’s lots of scroll sliders on the side (thanks for that). But There’s none for the server list. It was quite annoying when I’d try to scroll and I’d have to use the scroll click and be careful not to click the server. Please add one if you can. I get if it’s too tight but it’s wonderful!
That’s all! Please keep working on your beautiful app!
Shameru - Great app but no accessibility features
I have only just started using Discord but it is already my favourite app for talking to friends I am one of a few blind users who have been using the app to talk about some of our favourite games and even to play multiplayer on them when we’re not on the same network I am using a screen reader called voice-over and I also use another screen reader on Windows called jaws if you could optimise both the mobile app and the windows addition to run with screen readers that would be amazing until then the app is on usable to me and my friends also if you could simplify the layout a little bit that would be one of the first big steps towards optimisation thank you for reading my slightly long winded review and please take my ideas into consideration
India Squad - not impressed
i love discord , it’s a really good app to connect with friends and everything- but i have a problem about the app that won’t go away and it’s starting to really annoy me . When Discord changed my screen and told me to verify by phone or email i clicked email first . I did everything right but when it loaded up the *verifying your email page* on google or safari - the next step didn’t load so I was very annoyed with that . So next I tried my phone number and everything worked once more but when I typed in my password and pressed *done.* nothing happened .. so I kept retrying until it told me I was rate limited? Like wth discord. How am i supposed to verify if none of the options work for me? They’re actually not working for lots of more people to . I own a popular server and my members are going to get worried if I’m not there but this stupid verification is stuck on my screen page - THANKS A LOT 😡
Asimo lol - best texting app in the world
even tho almost everyone on discord is kinda weird, it still is really really fun. you can just join random voice chats and have fun and you get to meet new people. I really feel like that this app is one of the reasons I met a bunch of my friends. and how I found like app, my brother found it (dunno how) and I kept seeing him using it, he eventually asked me to get discord and I’m happy I did. I’ve been on discord for about 3 years now and I’ve met so much new people and had so much fun, the communities are amazing (some weird tho) and I definitely recommend this for chatting with friends. and if you get discord, who knows maybe you can have as much as me
2_islands - Excellent social and gaming communications platform.
The following is my opinion based on personal use and gaming community management.
This platform is rock solid for keeping in touch with friends enabling excellent control across the board; direct calls and individual server management. Individual servers can have set rules and rolls for both text and voice. All for the amazing price of “free”.
If you have cash, it is worth throwing some dollars at the developers to say thank you.
For community, the ease at which members can freely create their own servers results in community splintering. The benefit of community and meeting like minded individuals across a large range of games is hindered.
I would love to see better community tools similar to a town square with shops all around. Meet new people before heading of to play.
The developers are responsive with new features regularly coming online.
In my opinion, this is the best communication tool at this time. I look forward to watching how this develops in the future.
Zieraest - Problems with getting notifications.
This is more of a personal issue, the app works great by itself.
It's the notifications that I'm bothered with. I've made sure that I have my notifications on, that I haven't muted my friends or that my status isn't on ’Do not disturb.’ (sometimes I still get notifications when its on anyways.)
I was never that bothered by the fact that sometimes it didn't notify me but recently my friend was going through something and she tried reaching out to me, but of course I didn't get notified. I only went on discord to check something out and saw her messages after 2 days and immediately I felt very guilty and upset. I don't know the issue, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
Missjmelville - Love the app, issue with latest update
I love this app but after the latest couple updates it doesn’t seem to be refreshing in the background very often. As in I will open the app and it won’t show any new posts in channels until I close the app and reopen it. Can’t even find an option to turn background refresh on or off in my settings.
Would love to also be able to get Nitro but it is way too expensive when the only parts of it I want it for is for being able to post bigger files. Would be awesome if there was a lower tier that just had that as an option with a cheaper more affordable price. Especially considering exchange rates at the moment AUD pricing is ridiculous.
ArchCaff - Awesome 👏 😎
I have been using Discord for nearly a year and started using the mobile version just this year. It is an amazing 😉 app and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes gaming and texting on the go and I really like how the app is starting to become more like the desktop app and I really like that. I just hope you could add the GIF searcher. I think that would be cool. And maybe these emojis: 🤮 and 🤨. And if you can (not trying to force you) add the library section that would be cool too! Thanks for this awesome app it is great. I’ve had many fun times! Thank you 😊... Oh yeah and of course Wumpus is cute! 👌😂
Dunno ashcqnwxuavs - Wonderful! But one bug..
Ah yes, discord. One of the best social media apps of this era. For ages, I have used it, for talking and texting my friends, on ios, but then I encountered a small problem. One of the servers i was in had a animation place, filled to the brim with gifs, and i decided to access it one day. But when i accessed it, it froze the screen, because the gifs played automatically. I couldn’t touch anything, or even go out. It caused a lot of frustration, and I eventually had to delete the app to get it to work again.
Your platform is absoulutely wonderful, but please fix this! It’s really frustrating to encounter, and would overall improve your users experience. Thankyou!
EEvEe ThE PoTaTo - Read please✨
YES. i love discord its amazing. But i have a request. Can you please make a feature for talking to people. Can you please add a setting so when you type one mesage they dont receive it in notifacations. I mean for example, you want to text your friend a important notice about school, its 2am and they are sleeping. You can hold the mesage bar thing and a feature called ’deliver without notifacations’. Another thing you can add is a time of when they receive the notifacations. For example ’deliver at 7:am’ or something and then you send a mesage and they receive it in the morning. Thank you for reading this✌️✌️
Jcezjvjendgjexv - This is good
I am not a big fan of this game because of a good idea to use it for the rest of the day but it has to do with the app itself I love the game it keeps crashing and it crashes every time I’m on the phone and I have a few minutes of my progress on the iPad version of this app it keeps me entertained for hours to play and it is awesome I have a few things to do and it keeps me entertained for hours and I love it. The first one is a great game for the game to be played for a few days and the game will play it for a little bit more time to get the rest of it and then play it again for free
Gremlin_kiwi - Amazing App
Okay so I generally really like this app and use it a lot but that’s not really why I’m writing a review right now it’s because I think there could be some decent updates on Discord, for example, on mobile devices when going to the channels to move things around get an option to select a few at a time since it takes a while if I need to move a lot of channels another decent update could be when you do space it isn't a - it's really annoying and hard to make fancy servers with, just small updates like that would be great thank you for reading :)
Oooooooooooooooooo1111 - Crashed
My iPad Air that has discord for some reason has crashed. I don’t know ho but my internet and everything is good but the problem i have been waiting over more than 5 hours and it still says connecting. I have even tried deleting the app and reinstalling it and do everything I can but it just won’t work.
The problem happened when I was talking to a mate and suddenly I couldn’t reach them at all. I thought my iPad needed rest so I left it for 1 hour to rest but it still didn’t work at all.
I’ve tried everything but it still doesn’t work at all
Pistol Sniffalot - Account banned and deleted without reason
Had an account that was in use for years for verified games servers admin and moderation, flagged for deletion and banned - apparently by me!
Got ZERO response from a support ticket. Got told in a support ticket for another matter to "report abuse" on discord. That's great... I CAN'T use the account becasue I've asked 6 times for it be enabled and you tell me to use the "report abuse" feature?
Disgraceful, useless support that takes many days to reply with copy-paste answers that are not relevant. I'll watch this review and wait for the ironic delevoper response of "we're sorry we screwed you, contact support"...
UPDATE: Got the expected reply of "send a ticket...". Sent my ticket and got zero response and my account was erased.
UPDATE 2: The trust and safety team "couldn't find my account" after they only replied after it was erased. They have confirmed that discord staff triggered my account deletion. They are unwilling to help further even though it'd take 30s for some with a clue to update a database and relink my stuff to new account (just like they did for the recent mass account bans that they screwed up).
KARL G in support did this, and then pretended he didn't know what was wrong!
Gomt8 - There should be a “jump to message option.
There should be a “jump to message” option that allows you to jump to a specific message selected in the past conversations for mobile (like for Desktop users of Discord). However, there isn’t as there’s only the option of “jump to chat” in mobile, leaving mobile users in having to scroll up and up until they find the specific past message they are looking for. This is very inconvenient to do. Please add such a feature in Discord mobile.
—Note: Even though this is edited review of the previous one, this is supposed to be a new review.
Sparkqlez 🤘🏼 - WAY better than Skype
I used to use Skype all the time from 2014 to 2017 and then my cousin introduced me to Discord.
Undoubtedly, I believe Discord is much better than Skype because for some reason, I had to start paying for calls etc. on it.
Discord is certainly much better because you can even have groups up to 32 THOUSAND members. As well as having so many members, it's usually not laggy at all! It's really cool.
In addition to this, Discord has a feature where you can add reactions to a message. This is my favourite feature of all time because since the last time I used Skype, there wasn't that at all.
By the way... Discord also has bots that you can invite in your server. They can moderate the server, make it so you can "level up" with their bot and view your profile as well. It's quite fun using commands.
Discord is THE BEST and WAY better than Skype.... Seriously people, you should definitely download it and create an account but I'd suggest joining some servers first..
CatchTheCabbage - Photo problem
Hello people /devs or staff that is reading this, I’m sure this is an a amazing app to use I would recommend this to all gamers especially. But straight to the point, I’m getting annoyed when you try send a picture of something then it says 0 bytes, I’ve researched a little bit and apparently it means I have slow or no connection which doesn’t make sense to me because I’m connection is amazing so I was really confused then I hear others saying it was a glitch but any way can you please fix this it would help EVERYONE BY ALOT thanks love the app.
Communsim Is Cool Kids - A new bug that drives me insane.
Discord is a great platform to communicate with friends. I use it daily to talk with friends and play games with them. However, for being a platform dedicated to communication, it’s video calls are very buggy and lacking. See, a new bug has arisen where if I where to call someone, once it connects, it still acts as if though I hadn’t been connected to whoever I had called. After this it then quickly takes me in and out of the call, frantically spazzing out of control. This coupled with another dozen minor but annoying glitches can really put me in a bad mood. Discord, please get your video calls together.
A-e-l-i-n - Please add ‘jump to chat’ for phones
hi! I absolutely love discord at the moment but would really like it if you could please add the option to jump to previous messages when using the search option on a phone. I would really like to be able to see the whole discussion, not just a set amount of messages. This feature is great on the discord application for computers and I would really appreciate it if the same feature was given to the phone app
thank you very much :)
edit: I realise this is technically already a feature but it doesn’t seem to work as intended :)
Echelus - Probably the best product on the market
This platform can do so much more than just the bare minimum. From simple one-on-one chats to sprawling servers that can be organised to fit your needs. The developers are extremely committed to the service they are offering and are very approachable, if not a humorously nerdy group of people that are very kind and happy to help. Any issues that arise, albeit rarely, will be picked up and fixed within a few minutes. I can’t believe I’ve already been using this service for 3 years now and counting. These guys are probably here to stay.
Nonomname - Unethical devs
Unethical devs with hidden agendas. They will sell your data with a smile on their face. They have no respect for their user’s rights or privacy.
Update: Thanks for the passive aggressive response! Here’s some clarification:
Discord has openly stated they will “... develop software to find and manage abuse proactively.”
To put it simply: They will snoop on all your messages and activity, using the latest popular political stances as an excuse. Discord is not a platform where you can speak freely. If your chat doesn’t fit snugly with that of a modern American cooperation (investors such as American conglomerate WarnerMedia), you will be censored. Discord will not hesitate to comply with government requests for user data when you apply for a visa, or even a company looking to screen you when you are job hunting. Discord is not anonymous. Those constant new location detected warnings from snooping your IP/device/location should be enough to figure that out. But of course it’s for your security/privacy, right?
Discord DOES NOT respect user’s rights or privacy.
A communication platform with an estimate of more than 250 million users, that forces political views on all its users. Sound a bit dystopian? It’s discord.
Minecraft1428 - Good App, but...
The app itself is nice. But there’s a few problems, what I’d like to focus on the most is Light Theme.
Now there was recent changes to Light Theme and they are good, only issue is it still doesn’t look right. Discord still looks like it was made for Dark Theme, making light theme only look weird and ugly compared to what the app is meant to look like.
If on an iOS device, turn on invert colours in settings and then use discord dark theme. Honestly, the invert colour function in an iOS device makes a better light theme then discord’s. But I hope this can be fixed some day, maybe try making light theme look more like iOS invert colours, only without everyone’s profile images and role colours inverted.
Amelie_Davy858 - One of the best social apps I’ve ever downloaded!
Discord is a wonderful voice-and-video chat that changed my life for the better. Honestly. Free group chats, emotes, servers and more?! How much better can you get?
I also really appreciate the new safety precautions that have been put in place, such as reporting stuff to the Trust and Safety team. It really makes me feel safer and happier to talk to people and to be able to report any grooming or suspicious messages.
I’ve been able to connect to new people, and get to know my friends better than ever.
One thing I will say though, is that there are a lot of “Free Discord Nitro” server that end up phishing and hacking accounts that join. Apart from the GiveawayBot or other verified Discord Bots, don’t click emotes on Free Nitro servers. Report them if you can, as they are mostly fake and will try and attack you or get your data.
Other than that, I think it is an amazing app that deserves more recognition and praise.
Vansalami - Amazing love it and been using it for years now
I’ve been using discord to talk to all my friends and I find it really easy to use and it’s also pretty cool too, also I would love to see a feature that makes you able to change the background of the channel that your in like for example if I where in a channel in a server that was horror and it would have a background of something from horror, and then on other chats I could have a anime background on a anime channel, but anyways amazing app and I would recommend it to other people
LISTEN DISCORD} - okay, read.
so, recently i woke up and i tried to log into discord and yes my network was completely fine, discord didnt have ANY updates, so i didnt understand why it wasnt WORKING.

Johnny Bgoody - Awesome App!!!😍
As a person who loves to play games such as ROBLOX, Minecraft and many more others. This is an easy app to use if you want to talk to your favourite you tubers and their subscribers to chat about everyday things, events, art and many more subjects!!!
I would definitely recommend this app to a friend and indeed I have. I started using discord a month ago and I now use it everyday day instead of messages it’s just a really plane and easy app. This app was recommended to me soooo you can tell it’s pretty popular!!!
I rate this app a 5/5 it’s an awesome app go try it out today boi!!!
SincereMarsh - Notifications bugged, lag of messages is pain
Never get any notifications from discord, I don’t have do not disturb on and have checked the settings, I get all other notifications from different apps but never from discord anymore, I’ve been using discord for years and it’s usually pretty good so I guess it’s a bugged update or something, the other issue is to do with messages, I can get one without knowing it while I’m still talking to someone and close then reopen the app to see they replied in the middle of me talking ect, I can edit a message and have to do the same thing just to make sure it actually changed, don’t know what’s happening but please help.
AlastairA3-87 - AMAZING!! but...
i’ll keep this short, discord is an amazing app and i’m glad i downloaded it because i met some great people on there i can call amazing friends, but the fact you cant upload larger files than 8mb really annoys me, i hope someone sees our reviews of the files problem and is able to change it. i know nitro can fix it but i’m not paying money to just upload larger files. please fix this! and also could you add invisible do not disturb? (marked as invisible with the do not disturb feature of no in app notifications)
Deedle_dude - Great, but plagued with bugs
Never seen such a poorly optimised app in my life. Battery life goes down the drain faster than any other app I’ve ever used including games. Semi frequent crashing and weird bugs cause a variety of issues that really shouldn’t exist (voice input and output not working if an alarm goes off while in call for one example).
Apart from that the usual features present in the desktop app are in this mobile version which is very good, even if it does include the terrible performance. If the bugs were ironed out this app would be great even if the battery optimisation was still garbage, at least I wouldn’t have to restart it.

Tobor68 - There’s this one thing....
Discord devs, I’ve been waiting almost 2 years for you to add custom avatars per server. So have the hundreds, nay, thousands of people that have posted to your forums.
I’m one of them and I get 3-5 emails a day of people upvoting the post for this feature to be implemented.
Make it happen and the other 4 stars are yours.
If you’re a Discord user and want this feature, mark this review as helpful. Get the developer’s attention.
Outstandingq - Great app
Discord is a very intuitive app and is useful for communicating,
FireBlast327 - Remove Call Kit
It hurts me to write this review b/c I love discord but call kit is annoying af PLEASE LET US DISABLE IT
EarthStarDayClarion - Volume
The volume for voice chats isn’t appearing on my screen? I’m literally going deaf with how loud it is plz help.
Strcmzy - It’s cool.
Discord is an amazing app but I have a few struggles with it.
1.It keeps on crashing on me each time I click on a channel or server.
2.I seemed to notice that some of my messages take longer to load in then usual.(Not bcz or bad wifi-)
3.The raiders and the racist peeps.
4.Hackers going around trying to steal my account on my journey.
That’s basically all my complains about it but really-
It’s an amazing app.
Cxmeron. - Great app!
This app is a great way for people to communicate…. But it don’t understand why it’s 17+… I know there are predators but I think that’s excessive.
Something I think they should add is feature where you can change your icon in different servers… A lot of people have been waiting for this, so I hope it can be accomplished.
If you agree with any of these statements please say this comment was useful so the developers can see this!
FriskyMichi - Good but needs work
I use discord everyday and these problems are getting worse and worse, one I can’t set my Xbox live as a status I like to know how much time I’ve been playing a game. It logs me out for no reason, the app always needs to reload when it opened. The app will stop working and shut down every so often.
Warrior246810 - HELLLLP
I lost my account
FlinnRider - Yikes..
I've been using discord for around 2/3 years now and honestly back in the old days it used to be cool. Nothing was wrong with the app, call feature was fine and everything. After the recent update on phones, joining a call turns your originally 'on call' red bad near the top green, and initiates it like a phone call or FaceTime. It's annoying, I can't turn my phone off without hanging up or not being able to check my notifications.
Not to mention, I have to restart the app and join again to rid of that feature AND to actually communicate with whoever I'm on a call with, because it glitches out and they can't hear me, vice versa.
I wish it was reverted, everything seems to laggy and glitchy with discord nowadays. I love the app and I want to support it, but it's difficult when I can barely even use it.
Alex13 44 - Doesn't work
Doesn't matter where I tap, it doesn't register. Congrats discord you failed the most basic function of an app
Discord Lover ❤️ - It’s Fantastically Fabulous⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Discord is a great way to interact and socialize with your friends online. You have great privacy and don’t have to use a phone number to call each other. You can share your screen and even turn on your camera! Discord is an amazing app and we should be grateful that it’s free.
Wildmango34 - just...WOW!!!!
when i downloaded this, i just expected a nice app where you can chat with friends. but there was plenty more, i didn’t expect to be able to create servers or anything. i dont think i can ask for anything more!!
DarthBonamie - IOS Widget please
When will the discord dev team finally give us iOS widgets?
342446259 - Ignore the app rating of 17+
Ignore the app rating of 17+ you control who you talk to so just be smart.
Ggenstone - Some irritating new issues
Ever since the update in late February my phone has had issue after issue. My phone locking crashes the app. I change to another app and it disconnects me from the call until I swap back to discord.
The call quality is amazing when it works but the fact that it’s a 50-50 chance of failing is... not promising.
🆃🅸🅵🅵🅰🅽🆈 - LOGO
I LOVE DISCORD SO MUCH BUT YOU GOTTA ADMIT IT THE NEW LOGO SUCKS. EVERYBODY HATES IT. JUST LOOK IN YOUR TIKTOK COMMENTS WE ARE ALL ASKING FOR IT BACK. ME AND MY FRIENDS ARE ALL COMPLAINING ABOUT IT. IF YOU CHANGE THE LOGO BACK TO ITS OLD ONE WE WILL STOP HATING ON YOU
BRING THE OLD DISCORD LOGO BACK 🔫
Champie.png - pretty good, but..
custom themes!! please! like how theres light and dark themes, maybe custom themes! i want a pink discord sometimes. like, backgrounds, texts, maybe even fonts, etc! or atleast more themes!
Syner7 - Banned for “Spamming”. Abroken Appeal system
I’ve been a long timetime Discord user since 2017 and HypeSquad Member. I’ve done a lot to help grow their userbase as best I could. Now I shall provide my feedback on this experience here.
Discord’a autoflagging/disabling + Trust and Safety team is absolute whack. This autodetect system is broken and only serves to raise a number for statistics to look good. The Trust & Safety team won’t actually care for their community. Auto detection will just flag anyone using their services they provide to you as spam if used in anyway not suitable to the system. Immediately disabling the account without warning or a second chance.
Due to my heavy use and longtime standing account I’ve gained a ton of friends throughout the years. Being in multiple servers and having multiple friends. Well into the hundreds. Cause of this I had a ton of Friend suggestions, near 200 and wanted to use their Friend Suggestions feature they provided me on their platform. After sending friend request via their own features my account got flagged as spamming/botting. I had only used their Friend Suggestion feature and added friends and messaged only to have my account flagged as spam. Immediately disabled without warning for using their own features and nothing can be done on my end.
I’ve sent an appeal but they refused as the terms were broken due to bottong/spamming.
This system and team is broken. I’m willing too wager the vast majority of the millions banned for spam were wrongly banned. Flagging accounts for claims of “spamming”/“botting” when in reality it’s just using your platform and services
If discord Trust & Safety Team actually looked into my account they’d see the 5 years being a longtime heavy member and a HypeSquad Member to help build their community and userbase. The system is broken & this trust & safety team doesn’t seem to look into anything with nuance and a critical eye. Immediately going for an auto disable and ignoring the users afterwards.
This system needs fixing, an overhaul and more heavy moderation. Support tickets should serve to support, not just hold accounts hostage for a single mundane mistake after years of good use. Sometimes a real person’s account can get flagged by mistake, and in those cases you should work with the person to make sure the account is unsuspended.
Instead of immediately disabling and deleting for spamming. A temporary disable and warning of what was violated with the behaviour would be more ideal for users and the community. For example, you may be prevented from logging into your account for a certain period of time needing to verify info before proceeding.
Everyone deserves a second chance. Discord users should be able to access and work towards getting their accounts back. With a warning in tow and strike on their account for the temporary disable. Immediately disabling an account for a spam flag detection as that account’s first mistake is completely unreasonable.
With all this feedback and info being said. I’d really enjoy to give positive feedback for a platform I’ve enjoyed for years and helped a ton of others get into. I can’t when I’ve first hand experienced this situation and how it’s handled though. This flagging system and support is trash.
Discord will never be able to compete with the likes of Microsoft if they don’t take their users appeals more critically and nuanced. The reach to a more broad and professional user base won’t go over well with this system.
They need to really reconsider their actions and system. I really wanna enjoy this platform, I’ve had nothing but good things to say up until this point. This experience has soured my perspective on the behind the scenes and the inner workings of Discord.
I’d love support on this. I wouldn’t wanna give up without trying my best to get my account back. I don’t want to have to dislike the Discord platform and lose the friends I made and helped get into Discord over the past 5 years.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaap is stooped - 😮💨😮💨
Don’t make it 17+
Levi ackerman is short - It’s really good
I’ve been using discord for over a month now it’s awesome everyone should try it great app
Grgyltop - Really love this app, but one problem
I don’t if it’s the update that dropped recently or what, but the app itself is really buggy at the moment. I can’t send messages in servers or through DM for some reason. Even with deleting and re-downloading the app, it doesn’t seem to fix the problem.
Discord work better - To discord
discord use to work fine. but now in 2021 its always lagging. my friends voice is always cutting out and his voice will always stop working for a good 10 minutes then i can hear him again. i have a 13 year old house phone and it works just fine. and trust me its not my computer that does not work properly. i have a Brand new pc custom built and every game and other calling site work perfect so thats all i have to say thank you. To everyone reading this use a phone or a hoouse phone or a different calling site.
Shishwisuis - GIVE ME MY ACCOUNT BACK
I keep getting logged out of my account. Even if I make a new one! Can you fix this please discord.!
I'mTheVideoGameBoy! - Apple ruined Discord
I lost contact with several close friends because of the iOS nsfw server ban, even when I’m opted in on the desktop version through safari
Hjsjjzuu - Huge Privacy concern!
Whenever I open the app, my iPhone notifies me that my clip board gets pasted onto discord. That means anything content I copy to my clipboard, discord has access to without my consent!
Please fix this!
IHasCupquak7 - iOS 13
When I try to turn on my camera, it has the loading symbol. I tried re-downloading the app and switching networks but it doesn’t work. Fix this
NathamC94 - Recent discord update broke it.
Recently updated the app from 2.4.3, and everything worked fine. As of installing the most recent update I’m having latency and connection issues, the audio sounds “muddy” or too quiet for some reason when it did not before, and some icons register being pressed but do nothing at all (Mainly speakerphone, which only turns on if cam is on). The app seemed to work much better when it didn’t go through “iphone mode” for calls, being able to lock the screen and stay in a call was a nice feature that i liked personally. I still believe discord is one of the best apps to contact friends and call on as i think the audio quality, user interface, and connection quality is great, but that being said as of now that’s limited to the PC app and i really hope they implement fixes that fix the mobile app as it ruined the experience of using discord on mobile for myself and many others it seems.
ENJ0YABLE GAME! - I love it sm!
This is an amazing app to text on with your friends! 5 stars ヽ(♡‿♡)ノ
Lølgan SauceyYT - Epicc
An epic place to piss off mods with memes posted in general
Aldjcjrwkwoxicjrneixjcjf - Nice
Haha fun! New logo 🤗🤗🤗🤗
Change it back. 😡
Vinthick - yes it’s great
It’s really amazing.
Sam Zhu 海外 - Most amazing communication app I’ve ever used
Discord is by far one of the best and most flexible apps I have ever used. Its customization options and the amount of control you can administer over your own servers, group chats, and calls is amazing. Better yet, you can perfectly use the app to almost no inconveniences at all without upgrading to Nitro.
E-she - Bad influence
The Purpose of the app may be good. However the content that is being posted is absolute horrendous. The kids and adults using the app use language that is unacceptable. Encouraging other children to use the same language and thought process as the kids with no manners. I completely disapprove. Kids should not have access to messaging apps!!!!
RiggsMortis - Better than Messenger or Skype
If you’re looking for a platform where you can easily participate in communities, have individual conversations with your friends, share and store photos, or even just keep in touch with family, Discord is seriously the best for all of these, even without a premium subscription. I switched from Messenger to Discord about two years ago and haven’t really looked back since. It has better call features, group call features, better screen sharing capabilities, and so much more. Strongly recommend to anyone looking for something to use to keep in touch with people.
Splice is great - love the app but…
why make it 17+? i cant use the app anymore bc of that.
Larissa9032 - blurry icon
Everytime I put something as my icon, it becomes blurry. Please fix this!
Rooooooooffffgyff - Great app
Discord users be like:
Bibblwa - I think the app needs improvement
I’ve been using discord for so long, years maybe. But since the update recently, it stopped working. I know it’s not my phone because everything else works! I’ve tried deleting it and redownloading it, but then it wouldn’t show up on my phone. Please fix it. Xoxo
Walkerbait73 - im a bit sad with this one thing
To the Discord devs when will you create a screen share option for mobile users, *MOBILE* users so i was in a call with my friend and she was screen sharing her drawing on her *PC* and i wanted to share my screen i was on *MOBILE* so she could teach me how to draw floof i wish i could give five stars but im just disappointed that i cant screen share on *MOBILE* so she could see what i am doingggg please read this Discord devs :(
-Avix101- - suggestion
i like this app but if you could,could you change the emojis to use your emojis instead of ios emojis?
Ish_Montana - Ugly update
I rather deleted the app and use Skype or WhatsApp , the updated redesign is ugly , slow and hurts my eyes. Especially the logo
Nicmic5 - huh
what is this ugly looking thing in my app library. it looks like a stain on the wall. my god it’s so annoying and i can’t even paint over it because of how bright it is.
Ordnajela34 - New logo looks horrible
I miss the old discord, the new font, logo, and style is very bad. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it discord. I’m uninstalling this app
Hawt....rat... - discord will you let me in my account???😀
LET ME IN😭
Bellafetch - Scam
My account was charged multiple monthly yearly charges everytime the app was used. Over 20 days caused almost $1000 in charges what should have been $15
Jill Maude - This App is full of Predators
There are a lot Predators preying on children in this app. Do not allow your children access to this site.
THlS lS TRASH - Friend request don't work
when i type my friends username and code it says invalid they told me their name and type it like that pls do somthing
Chokes_Airr - Two factor authentication
Not working, keeps crashing and being a dick. Friend got hacked and gifted me nitro for a month. Someone from Russia tried logging into my account right after. Won’t let me set up two factor authentication. Crashes and sends back into login screen when I try to set it up. Not impressed.
CMDR Melted - Channel feed jumping when reading old messages
Good app, no complaints. But, for the love of God, please, PLEASE, can you make the feed to stop jumping randomly when user reads old messages and new ones are being posted? It is EXTREMELY annoying and one of the reasons I prefer desktop web version over mobile app. PLEASE fix it.
Gummie271 - Meh review U~U
It’s great and easy to use to talk to friends.
I haven’t had to many problems with it.
Also the people saying it ruined there life.
That’s their fault
