    Yes I noticed that too (Galaxy S10) and it's really annoying. Hope they fix that.

    They've been this way for awhile. It happens with regular frequency on my Pixel 3 XL. Most embeds appear very skinny and I have to scroll away and then back for them to appear normal. That only fixes it about half the time. Sometimes they stay skinny.

    It still happens on my Samsung phone. On PC embeds display just fine, on mobile some embeds just get squished to less than half the original embed width.

    I have tested this and seen that:

    • embeds without a description get compressed in their displayed width on mobile, even if the content of the embed fields should be displayed in full width
    • embeds with a description field will get their width adjusted to the width required by the description

    So if you only add a description with test "text" it won't affect the embed width, but if you add a longer description text, it will force the embed width to be the full width displayable on mobile.

    I hope this information helps bot devs to work around this issue, and that it helps the Discord staff to fix this bug.

    Attached is a picture of three screenshots taken on mobile, the left with no Description, the center with a short description and the right with a long description. On PC, all three of them are the same width as the embed immediately above. On mobile, only the embed with a long description uses the maximal screen width.
