On Discord, you can automatically update your activity status to show the game you’re playing, an activity you’re doing that supports rich presence (like listening to Spotify), or if you’re attending a public Stage.
You can customize where and how your activity status shows up. Here’s a guide:
Activity Status Settings
These settings let you control how Activity Status shows up everywhere on Discord.
Go to User Settings > Activity Privacy
You will see two toggles:
- Display current activity as a status message: This toggle controls whether or not anyone on Discord can see your activity status. If this setting is toggled on, your activity status will automatically be displayed in servers you are in and to your friends. You can control whether your activity status is shared in a particular server using that server’s “Activity Status” setting, as described below.
- Share your activity status by default when joining large servers: When you join a new server with over 200 members, this toggle determines whether your “Activity Status” setting for that server defaults to on. If this toggle is on, your activity status will automatically be displayed when you join new servers.
If you do not want to automatically display your activity status when joining new servers with over 200 members, toggle this off.
In certain countries and certain situations, this setting might be defaulted OFF for you. You can always change your settings by following the instructions above.
These settings let you control how Activity Status shows up in individual servers.
- Within a server, go to the server settings dropdown menu > Privacy Settings
- You will see the below:
- Share your activity status in this server: This toggle controls whether or not everyone in a server can see your activity status.
