How to Add Games to Discord 

When the app is installed, the list of games stored in your pc or device will show in the Discord library by accessing the Home tab. However, there are instances that you need to manually add games to Discord if it does not reflect right away.

  1. Open the Discord app on your device.
  2. Click the User Settings icon found in the bottom left of your screen.
  3. Select Game Activity.
  4. Turn on the toggle beside “Display currently running game as a status message.” Once turned on, the list of games on your device will show in the library below.
  5. Select Add it! to add the game you wanted to show in the app.
  6. Search for your game and select it. 
  7. If the game is supported by the app, it will be successfully added to the Discord library.

After the games are added to your Discord library, the live status will show on your profile every time you are on a game.

How to Add Unverified Games to Discord

There are times that games do not appear automatically in the Discord library because the game is not supported. In this case, you can add the games by using their game file. Below are the steps for your reference:

  1. Access the Discord app.
  2. Select User Settings. 
  3. Select Game Activity.
  4. Tap Add it! and find your game. 
  5. Select the game and once the game is running, minimize the game.
  6. Select that active program associated with the game and you can choose any name for that program.

Take note that for unverified games, the status will not show on your profile when you are playing the game. Discord still continues to improve their system and hopefully will add more verified games to their app and add more features for the players benefit.
