Image spoiler for mobile



  • Kasaman

    We have been asking for this simple feature for a year now come on discord staff

  • phlvy

    For IOS
    1. take the photo and save it to your files
    2. go to files and tap the name of the photo to change it using the SPOILER_(whatever name you want)
    3. share the file through the files app

    For Android
    1. go to files
    2.rename the photo file with "spoiler_(name)"
    3. the photo is now renamed and you can share it on discord

    but renaming the file is a very uncomfortable situation
    this is a very old function, it should already exist in mobile

  • Metzgirl (she/her)

    PLEASE! I rarely have my desktop available and there images on my phone I'd rather not have to download to my computer just to spoiler tag. The work-arounds I've seen aren't functioning because Google in their INFINITE WISDOM decided to make it impossible to change the name of an image on my phone. Thanks Google.

    I am seeing more and more users who only have Discord on the mobile.  These people have no need for a computer; either their mobile does what they need, or they have a tablet that does.  It is well past time that Discord gave parity between versions a higher priority.

    So a lot of people are saying to rename the file to have SPOILER_ in the beginning, but I made undertale fanart that is a spoiler for the game and I renamed it to "SPOILER_Flowey.png" but it still didn't do anything, I'm on an amazon silk tablet btw

    I’ve found it does work on iPhone ya just need to add the image to ya Files app, rename ya pic in their to SPOILER_[picture name] then use the share feature from the Files app to discord

  • SSTobius

    Again, renaming the photos is a hassle. We would like to have something like on the desktop version where you can simply click a box to spoiler an image

  • Cr4shMyCar

    I seriously don’t know why this isn’t a thing yet. Adding a checkbox or letting you type /spoiler to spoiler an image on mobile isn’t that big of a task, right?

  • Animalover4six

    Every time there is a new update introducing new feature(whether totally new or new to mobile) they still don’t give us spoiler images...come on!!

  • Michael_Calehorn

    this totally hasn't been necro posted a few times, but a easier work around is going into your webapp, logging into discord on there and setting it to desktop view and doing it through there, a lot faster than re naming the file and all these other work arounds.

    found a workaround for ios, but it requires uploading the image first, so you’ll need fast fingers or lock the channel briefly. Submit the image, copy the media url, paste it into the chat with || spoiler tags and a space on either side. Then delete the original image.

  • Dust Trail

    Or you could just post in a DM/channel out of view and copy the media link, but either way they should make it an option in app

    Go to the photo in your photo library and click the button you normally would to send it somewhere. Scroll to the bottom and click “save to files”. Save it as a download and click the name to edit it. Change the name to “SPOILER_”. Then go to your files app and select if from there, send it in to discord. Hope this helps!!

  • Jendrej

    It’s been nearly two years since spoilers were added and we still need silly manual workarounds.

    Get your asses to work and do it. It is not an impossible feat, god dammit.

  • Valcrist

    The fact this in the mobile app yet is an absolute joke

  • emmmma

    @TheSilentPro hi! i figured it out for IPhone. I didn’t bother scrolling through people comments so this very well could have been solved already LOL.

    Ok i needed a spoiler for a video and I’m on my Iphone. Go to your photo/video in your pictures. You are going to press that bottom left button and scroll down and press “Save to Files”. (I actually didn’t have my Files app downloaded so i had to do that prior to this) it’s going to bring you to the Files app. Rename it to “SPOILER_video” Now you’re gonna wanna go back into the files app and actually share the picture or video from within that app. It worked for me!! Hope that was clear. my disc is emmmma#5419 if anyone has questions.
