    Custom Status has been released!

  • BasicallyWiz

    Some partnered services do this. Like: "Streaming: *Stream*" (Twitch) and "Listening to *song*" (Spotify)
    However, it would be a great idea to widen the range of this feature.

  • Azantii

    Please yes. I'd love to have custom names here, even if it's just a limited list. "Playing FL Studio" just looks weird.

  • Floffah

    @FlarePhox🔥🍪 no, if you selfbot (do not selfbot its against the rules i think) or own a bot you can set the activity and use a custom listening to or streaming activity.

    But i agree with @Nelly, that would be great. I would also love to see "Working on my projects"

    I don't see any use in this at all.

    You can add custom statuses by setting, for instance, Google Chrome as the game you're playing and editing the name of it. If that's not exactly what you're looking for, this is probably the same suggestion as this then:
  • ColtHale

    Yes, but not every user knows how to do this, and some users use mobile. You can’t do this to my knowledge on mobile. So, it’d be much better if it was simply implemented instead of using some half bug half on purpose thing.

  • wAffles
    I'd say the best alternative as of now is to leave discord open on your PC at home and change your playing status to "AFK" or "on vacation" etc.
  • ColtHale

    Or! Discord could add this sense it's a suggestion! This suggestion is not looking for alternative methods to doing this. It's askig Discord if they'll add it into their Application/System/Code! I am not looking for alternatives. Also, that alternative don't work if someone doesn't have a PC. So...

    Better yet, how about an option for a fully custom status? Even with a full list like the one suggested in OP's post, it still may limit some people who want to customize their status a little more.

  • flurry

    I think the ability to put a quote or a mini description as a status would be even cooler. Like whatsapp, skype or facebook does.

  • wildcard

    I'd really like this for the item trading channels I'm in so people know when I'll be back from work or w/e for trades. Barring AFK auto-response and custom status message, this would also work.

  • Hentai Master



  • Frosty
    Yes please. It can be so cool!
  • SidiØUS

    i can not wait for this, give us this update! 

  • Dumelax

    Yo I'd definitely be down for that!

    Instead of having menus within menus the customization could be inside a Discord pop-up just like this:

    Then the pop-up window can look like that:

    It is important to note that more options can be added to that; like the colour of "Custom..." in the Status menu doesn't have to be green, but can be selected in the pop-up window with a drop-down list.

    About typo, using asterisks to make some words bold and pretty much everything that works in the chat can do (almost everything, may not be able to use code formatting).

    If you wish to edit your original post to add images I've posted feel free to do so! In any case I'm hyped and filled with hope now that I saw a suggestion that got such a massive support!

  • Fayoka

    I totally agree with this but...

    Instead I'd prefer a system similar to slack where I can set an emoji and hover description. It's such a cute feature and think this would translate well into discord. ( And not get rid of the "currently playing" ) status. As I'd like to utilize both a set status and a "gaming" status.

  • Sabourifar
    Yes please. It can be so cool
  • Lucifer Morningstar

    i probably didn't explain well so instead of just something like this we could add a learning one

  • WeBelongToTheGoddess

    I'd really just like to see a box option where I can type in whatever status I want it to say. I love having the feature, for the RP world it's great to be able to rep your fave or own forum in that area. Setting your game status to chrome you can customize the name of it...however it doesn't stick. I have chrome active at all times, but Discord is constantly reading that I don't, so the game status doesn't even read on it. Just having a spot where I can type a quick url to something. Or just randomly type "BOO" would be nice. It'd be even COOLER if it could be changed on a server by server basis, but honestly I'd just like to see it more customize able.


    That being said I reallllllyyy like Fayoka's suggestion. Less cluttered that way!

  • Caleb.

    What significant benefit would this give?

  • Nymfaera

    Hey yes I want a mood bad where you can type how you are feeling today. Not just emoticons but an actual status. 

  • StephD

    Yes, something like a status that could be visible enough for others to see how you feel :) 

    Colour, image, etc.

  • Aritel

    It would be really helpful to have a "Custom.." status, that you can change as needed.

    It would solve this problem here aswell! :)

  • Angst

    Yes! We need this one.

  • Sage

    Yes please! It'd be nice to not have it say 'Playing: at work" or something. I get that discord was originally built for gamers but it's become too broad to just be a gaming platform anymore.

  • Yellowsink

    I saw someone "Playing Visual Studio: Working on python" That just looked dumb.

  • SmallPepperZ

    I think this would be a great feature addition

  • Alex!

    agreed on the emoji status, that'd be super cute

  • MulverineX

    Please implement this
