I’ve had this app 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 this app 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, this app does not offer a desktop app for iPads, which are more than capable of running a Mac version of Discord . 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, this app 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 Discord 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.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app, but ever since the update that made the text box cluttered with so many buttons, I feel like Discord 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), this app saves what you wrote in the chat box! I have been saved so many times by that feature. this app 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 this app, but I miss some things from its “Dark Ages,” as they called it.
I love Discord , 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 this app 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.

I have been having this app 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 this app 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 this app 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!!
this app 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, this app started integrating their calls with actual phone calls. This means that every time I get called on this app, it goes through to my ringtone. The whole reason I use this app 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 this app, even though Discord 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 Discord just to avoid the ringtone...again. Please fix this issue.
I like this app because Discord 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 Discord and refresh it but it’s a pain when it happens all the time. I’m afraid one day Discord would kick me out and all of my text would disappear, my time wasted. Every update I hope this gets fixed but I heard this app 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 Discord . 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 this app could please keep up with the updates on Discord 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.

Sure, this app 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% this app’s fault, you can ignore this if you want) the connection seems to be getting worse. I used to love this app 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.
From the very beginning, I have had numerous problems with Discord. The only reason I am giving it two stars is because when it does work, it is phenomenal.
When I first got Discord , it wouldn’t let me join the server I wanted to and said I was banned (even though I’d never used Discord before). I re-downloaded Discord recently because I was joining a clan and they required this app. I got Discord 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 Discord didn’t even let me do that. I created my account and tried to login on Discord , no success. I’ve re-downloaded Discord 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 Discord 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.

I love using this app, 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 this app 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.
I will start this review by saying that I haven’t actually been able to use this app. I downloaded Discord 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 this app 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 this app- I had access to a this app account. A whole 3 days later. All of this could’ve been resolved if I had access to someone at this app who knew a lick about user accounts and how to immediately delete them.

Honestly, Discord 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 this app 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 this app 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’ve been using this app 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 this app closing while I’m in other apps. Usually I fixed these problems by just redownloading Discord , but just yesterday it wouldn’t even let me open this app 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 Discord doesn’t open so I try redownloading it and it still does not open, (by the way when I mean Discord 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 this app has been having and asking if the developers are even caring about mobile this app or is it really just a case where I should just get a mic and use this app on my pc.
Despite my 3 star score I’ve still used this app 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 this app team keep up the work maybe you’ll find a fix.

So these people were making a this app 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 this app 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!
I like this app 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 Discord 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 this app with me, but if I can’t use it half the time, then it’s like I don’t even have it at all.
this app 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 this app. It did seem like a very open messaging service, leading to incidents with cyber bullies/child predators. Since getting this app, 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 Discord .
I highly recommend Discord 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!

this app 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 this app 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.

I’ve used this app 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 this app 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 this app, 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.
Discord is great! I gave Discord 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! this app 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! this app 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 this app Devs! Please remove this! Other than that… I love Discord !
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 this app. 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 :/
I’ve been using this app 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 this app 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 Discord being known for gaming? Come on. I still use Discord 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 Discord has a place for EVERYONE, disboard is a common and easy place to find a server for you.
So this app has been pretty much great overall, I love using it every day and never really had any problems with how it looked or worked, until this recent update. Now, while during a call, when I lock my phone on my iPhone, this app shows up as a call for everyone to see and access, like an iPhone call. I do not feel comfortable that anyone can just see that I’m on a this app call; that’s what I liked about this app. I could only access the call via Discord , that’s why I used this app. If I wanted to access the call via the lock, I would’ve just called someone. Now this app is acting like an iOS phone call by making a new tab appear which is also annoying and difficult to just look at and manage with other apps that are opened. There was no original issue with how this app calls were displayed, now they’re blatantly out in the open for people to see and I believe it’s not convenient at all. It also bugs out when I just try to lock my phone sometimes. It won’t actually lock and when I tap my phone, the call will appear with the new look and my phone will be unlocked. I know you guys are trying something new but this is a bit of a stretch. this app was this app by not looking like an iPhone/apple created application. At least make it an option to remove the display of the this app call on the lock screen, it would be greatly appreciated by those who desire some privacy.
this app is a great tool for gaming, streaming, and almost anything you need out of a communication service/application. Yet it is lacking sometimes there is server lag or buggy happening on pc and the phone version usually just the phone version but its come along way and most of the bad issues are completely fixed. I just wish it was more compatible with certain devices, for example i don't have a great pc but it is good enough to play arma 2 - 3 with 60 frames yet this app likes to kill my cpu time usually freezes and such as well, despite playing with the prioity setting it higher or lower doesn't fix the problem. Ios version seems fine most of the time but sometimes has server lag or disconnects. But all in all its one of the best alternatives to paid communication services for gaming and streaming, and i am if it wasn't free it would be the best of paid applications, its simple you can create free servers and manage those servers with ease. btw in your update log you wrote "with relative easy" instead of relative ease. The best part i would say is how easy and how quickly you can create and connect with people so you can just get into your game and start playing. Thank you this app! i hope you continue to improve and fix this application, its been a few years since i have even looked at teamspeak and its all thanks to you guys|~<3

I started to use this app 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 this app to communicate with friends, teammates ( especially in games where a mic is not supported ) this app does not affect my frames which is something I enjoy, I can still play my favorite games with this app 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 this app up was surprisingly easy and I had no trouble what so ever, I have never been let down by this app 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 Discord 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 Discord
Hello there ‘this app’, I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Now, Discord 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 Discord 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.
(If you would like to speak 1 on 1 for any particular reason or questions, my this app is iisabxla#2993)
this app 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.) Discord stops working. I get that the voice should stop but after switching apps and coming back or after ending the phone call, the this app 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 this app, sometimes. It’s unpredictable when I’m just randomly disconnected from this app. My friend reported his phone calls not coming through when he’s on a this app 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 Discord improve my gaming other than taking bandwidth from my gaming?
I love this app! I’ve always loved it on the desktop version, and have had no issues with it on there. I get mobile is behind and you can’t really get all the features, and of course it’ll be different, but I absolutely HATE that calls act as phone calls now. The sole reason I switched from typically using FaceTime Audio calls to this app calls was to be able to lock my phone while talking, have my phone on my bed without the screen turning off when something covered the sensor, other people not being able to see what or who I was talking to, and it not stuffing up my call logs. this app used to be wonderful. The thing that bothers me the most is not being able to lock my phone without the call ending. An absolute pet peeve of mine and it’s awful. Please please take it away, we were FINE without it. Stop trying to be FaceTime.
EDIT: You’ve now gained back my affection, this app. You rolled back those changes and now Discord is wonderful and back to how it used to be! 5 stars for this amazing app and customer service that actually reads reviews and takes action!!! Very Impressed!
I’ve been using this app for about a year and half now, Discord 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 this app calls showing up in my history. I don’t like this app 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 this app 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.
I absolutely love Discord. 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 this app. 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 this app 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.

I have never seen such a huge amount of unmoderated social groups in my life. Child porn, pirating, doxxing, Ddossing, terrorism, stalking, animal abuse, and so much more. At the very least, you can pick and chose who can contact you, who can enter your servers and such, but the sheer amount of spam accounts and hackers that go unpunished on this thing make even that nearly impossible when some basement troll uses his 600 accounts to absolutely blow up your inbox or your server with graphic images or death threats. The staff of this app are very quick to delete accounts reported with proof of things like that, but there are massive servers full of thousands of accounts, in some cases solely dedicated, to the illegal distribution of pirated merchandise or underaged sex that staff aren’t allowed to touch unless someone makes a report. Usually, these things go unreported. In my time on this app, over 20 people have gotten arrested for illegal, vile acts found solely on Discord/website. I like this app for what it is, but staff needs to make an effort to control their people themselves instead of just letting them run rampant. Don’t ever let your kids on here, even if you think you are moderating them. People WILL attack them, just like they’ve attacked me, even if you never join a server or speak to anyone besides friends.
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.

this app is a great alternative to other apps, I got it because I was in a group and that group required you having this app, 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 this app 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 “this app” but Discord screen was almost empty this app was going very faint, and I can’t do anything on this app, 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.
