Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What happens if I set a custom app icon, but my Nitro expires?
A: Even if your Nitro expires, you will still be able to keep the selected custom app icon. However, you will no longer be able to choose another custom app icon aside from the default app icon. The only exception would be if you are using a limited time icon, which will change back to the default app icon when the limited icon is removed.
Q: Can I upload my own custom app icon to Discord?
A: No. You can only select from one of the available Discord app icons.
Q: Will the custom app icon carry over to other mobile devices I’m logged in on?
A: No. On each mobile device, you will need to set up the custom app icon.
Q: Why isn’t my Discord app icon on my desktop’s home page changing?
A: The custom app icon feature on desktop only changes the in-app Discord app icon.
Q: Why can’t I see limited edition icons on desktop?
