    This can be done already actually, but it's a little more complicated. You're gonna wanna go into your gallery, find the photo you want to add the spoiler tag to and edit the photo's details. You then have to edit the photo's name. You can name it whatever you'd like, just be sure it starts with "SPOILER_" . Example being "SPOILER_gnome". I've only tested this on an Android phone, but i'm almost certain it would work the same on Iphones. Hope this helped anyone.

    We shouldn't have to do a work-around for this, the app should just ask if you want to spoiler an image before posting it.

    For real, how hard is it to add a checkbox like they have in pc? This was the ui update we needed. Not the one they gave us

    TEMPORARY SOLUTION
    A workaround for this currently is to get the URL for the image (by DMing an alt or a bot or messaging in a test server of yours, etc., and clicking share button + copy OR uploading to an image hoster) and putting
    || [url] ||
    There must be a space on either side of the spoiler bars and the URL for it to show the actual image (which will be hidden) and not just the link.

    The || url || thing works so just use it for now until further updates and stuff~

    edit: nice i got negative votes

    Ain't good, we need less sophisticated way of marking spoiler images on mobile.

    Would love to see this feature better integrated for things other than text. I know that you can highlight the text you want to ||"Spoiler"|| but you cant really do that for anything else. it also isn't really working for the share panel that most phones have for sharing through another app to discord without opening discord. Other media like jpg or gif are also not easy to spoil guard. Just a little better integration would be nice. Great feature just meh on how well it function on different platforms or sharing methods.

    i agree. a work around is just avoiding applying the update to mobile. we shouldn't need a work around!... i'm a nitro user for a long time and i think image spoiler should be an everyone feature for mobile devices. most people use mobile so it only makes sense to implement that. i hope you manage to make everyone such a button! i really like discord but not being able to spoiler images in a simplistic way that desktop/pc can do isn't really ideal. here's to hoping!

    Jonosaa, just tested this on iPhone and did not work. Thanks for the work around for Android though

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

    Please do, Discord! Everyone in the servers i’m in tried to manually spoiler tag the images on mobile devices and didn’t work due to the confusion with the steps. Hope you can implemented in the next update!

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

    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.

    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.

    We don’t want iffy workarounds that don’t always work, we want reasonable parity with the desktop version. This feature is long overdue.

    I would love this feature, as when I'm playing mobile games with story and want to chat about new chapters with guildmates in Discord. I feel bad posting a screenshot that may have a story spoiler on it because I can't click the option via my phone.

    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.

    Seems clear to me that Discord isn't planning to make this feature, they'll just keep forcing people to do some convoluted method of spoilering images from phones. Possibly they just assume that no one would send game screenshots from phones or anything and they don't want people using it for other purposes. Who knows. There are many times when I wanted to spoiler mark an image I took with my phone. Even screenshots from games I played on my phone when those games were in beta mode and I was testing them and reporting info on them to the devs in their discord server. This should have been an option when spoilers first came out, to be made clickable when uploading on the phone.

    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?

    This should really be a check box like on desktop.

    yeah i meant the show spoiler content option on desktop, except mobile doesn't have that option (yet)

    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

    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

    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!!

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

    Add this. Now.

    How is this still not a thing?

    iOS doesn’t have image renaming, so there’s no way to do it on the iOS mobile app, and it’s a jank as hell workaround on Android.

    This feature request is TWO YEARS old. I know the Discord devs are busy, but how much code does it really take to add an interface widget to set the flag that the Spoiler checkbox sets on desktop?

    it isnt edited well but it gets the point across
