Direct Message User Limit Increase



  • Octahedron

    Damn, I have a similar situation where we want to be able to call at the same time and I really hope they look into this.

  • PF1MIL

    Considering that Skype has had 25-member groups for years, this seems like a no-brainer.

  • Isabel
    This is absolutely necessary. Is a good feature to be added if you just want a small temporary group where you don't want to have to fiddle with permissions too much. In my opinion, 10 is too small for a small group.
  • 小喵

    This needs to be added.

  • ahmad

    Agree. Or just add a new type of channel that is video channel in servers

  • Ian 屮

    Please this

  • R..

    Video call for 10+ people would be really great though for big friend groups who want to call and maybe see the others' faces or use screen share to watch someone play a game/play a game interactively with the rest without anyone needing to stream it

  • EverVigilantOne

    agree 100%.  video chat groups should also be increased though


  • UserOfTheName

    yea in my friend group we have to add and remove people on the daily because non of us like the fact that you can't ring people or screen share on servers 

  • Bicren ♪

    Thats actually a good idea...some of the talking are probably private, and the whole server should now see it

  • jdsyke

    I have the same problem :(.  Would REALLY like to see this implemented.  One of the only features I can think of that Skype had and Discord doesn't.  :/

  • sushiwich

    This would be an amazing feature, in my group chat we're constantly removing someone every time we need to add someone else, and more slots would let everyone be able to be in the chat at the same time

  • minininja6806

    Please discord, when people don’t wanna make another server and you can’t join the group chat because the people limit has been reached just sucks and makes you unhappy

  • fisher989

    Can this be raised during the COVID-19 quarantines temporarily?

  • jdsyke

    Also, just realized that there are several suggestions with a similar amount or even fewer upvotes that have been implemented.  It sucks not being able to have everyone in a group DM :(

  • JustKalla

    Yes please so we dont have to keep replacing people


  • Conner

    yes this is quite frankly ridiculous, screen sharing / streaming feature in servers is bad and there's no point in having to create a whole extra server with different channels and things when we just want one chat that's right there and easy to screen share / call too. Its super frustrating to have to always add or remove people and every time chat tries to move to a server it either dies or just ends up moving back to the dm.


    +1 to increasing cap to 15

  • ouiou

    any news about this one???? i also vote for having 15+ in group dm

  • europeanlass

    Seconding this, especially for the increase of available pins!

  • thetechguy
    discord we need this.
  • Spidey
    yeah, we need larger groups. 10 member is smaill for everyone
  • dub

    idk why but groups are way more private imo. 

    group can share screen but server can't. Only the guys on pc that can also see my live. 

    the group limit should definitely be increased, At least 15.

    i feel bad when i kick my other friend just to invite another one.

    ok at least make that a feature for nitros man if u want

  • Ceapa

    I agree. There is when you dont wanna create a server because its too much work, and harder to access, and you have extra friends to add to the dm.

  • Aztek

    Groups are better though

  • Amber Cyprian

    Would also like to second this as 15 is just right. I don't want to make another server for just one text channel where permissions aren't needed. Wouldn't likely need the whole 15 slots, as I personally just need 12, but 15 is a nice round number.

  • 1024

    Would be pretty useful in my opinion

  • Melonah

    I would also like to either make bigger DM groups or bring the ability for multiple people to video chat in servers. I understand it would not be possible for large amounts of people to video chat at once, but perhaps just only let a certain amount of people share their cameras at once and let the rest just listen and speak. 

    If this was a Nitro feature (perhaps a server boost?), I wouldn't hesitate to get nitro.
  • grimace

    discord PLEASE do this oh my god

  • Temm

    Please yes. Our Minecraft Modpack needs over 10 members and a server is overkill as we would only have one text and one voice channel.

  • Juan/Junki

    I agree that this is a much needed feature, but I think it would be better to have it default at 10, but there could be an option to adjust the size of the group (similar to the option on voice chats in public servers) up to 25 or whatever else could be a good hard-limit. And if the UI gets too cluttered in the top right (which is where I think it would be added if it was) maybe having a small settings dialog for the chat size, invite links, notification settings, group picture and group title.

    To the people saying that with more than 10 people its better to make a server, I disagree since some people (myself included) use group chats to chat with an extended friend group with the same interests (friends & friends-of-friends) and it's just more convenient and simple to have one room for chatting, calling, and screen-sharing, which it just isn't worth making a whole server for.
