    I’ve really wanted to put bots in group chats.

    I support this idea x3


    The bot accept the friend requests automatically.

    Examples:
    To receive bot notifications without the Allow DM of the server enabled.

    To receive bot notifications without some Discord Server added.

    Add bot musics on call of DM Groups.

    Very useful idea just because I need it to play music in group chats.

    Perhaps more appropriate would be making it so you can DM a bot regardless of whether or not you share a server?

    Discord could even just add in an extra setting for user that allows you to have DM's turned off for user but not bots.

    I think this would be a really nice feature. There could also be multiple ways bots accept friend request, like through the API, or the app page. This could be used for things like simple games, reminders or other crud that would be stupid to create an entire server just to do

    Any update on this thread? The bot I'm developing requires DM's from people who do and don't share a server with it.

    The way bots would manage friend requests is through the Discord API. Bots could also send friend requests. The boys would receive gateway events on received friend requests and accepted friend requests. I believe in full feature parity between bot accounts and regular user accounts.

    This would be a nice feature as if I wanted to close my dms but wanted to get messages from bots at the same time, I CANT BECAUSE I CANT FRIEND THEM!

    I agree with the person who says that people who have their settings so they can only DM friends, can DM any Discord bot

    I support this, it's hard to switch to a server

    ConnyGuy 1.1 that depends on your vps, you can use keepalive when developing a bot or use an always online vps

    I'm sorry to say that this will not be happening. 

    Discord loves its developers. But being able to send friend requests via bots is going to be chaotic. API spam is a real thing. Server raids, DM spam, all of these things happen from existing bots but adding a mass friend request feature is going to add to all that. Not only that, bots can send friend requests, and when they are accepted-they can send links to nitro scams and other suspicious links. Overall, it might seem like a good idea, but has too many downsides. 

    Thank you,
    Dev_

    They, sadly, removed the ability to 'friend' bots to accept it with code.

    But if bots friend you first, you could accept it,

    Please, i beg you discord.

    Well, the initial request was to allow a person to be friends with a bot. And that still stands. It's a bad situation that I can't authorize a bot (that I wrote, btw) to send me a DM without allowing everyone to send me a DM.

    It shouldn't even need a friend request. Any bot in a server should just have a Menu Option to "Be your friend" or, "Accept DMs from this Bot". So stupid simple, so necessary for so long, so hard to understand why a user can't choose to receive DMs from whomever they want. NOT the bot. The user.

    What want is so you send the request from your account to the bot and in the discord developer portal they make a new tab: friends where you can manage its friends and friend requests. That way people can't send requests from the bots and you won't have to check your friend requests day to clear out the ones from bots.

    I also think this should be a thing so you don't have to have a server to test your bots in development and you can just friend it to test them. See what I mean? It would make it so much easier for me to make my bots.

    Being able to treat a User/DMs as a Server and Channel would be far more complicated than simply allowing a User and a Bot to be friends, which is what the original request is. Or even more simply, a User option to accept DMs from specific bots. Which, again, is what the OP was after.

    Being able to invite a bot to DMs would require so much more work on the Discord dev side, and would have little value outside of niche development. I didn't find it too difficult to create a Server just for use for dev work.

    But it's clearly a moot point, Discord has obviously no interest in easily solving common problems. Not while there are still more ways to add useless features like stickers.

    No offense (continues to say something offensive lol), but I think this suggestion is dumb.

    Most bots disable DM commands. I do on all my bots as well, since it always breaks the bot in some type of way. With slash commands being the new norm as well, zero chance this would happen. This has no use. If they did make this a possibility, most likely no library would bother detecting the friend request event.. maybe Discord.js, not sure.

    The only thing I can see this being useful for is AI chat bots. Even then, why not just create your own server or private channel? Still, you can DM a bot at any time, given allow DM is enabled.

    Edit: Plus API spam and such lol, pretty sure someone broke it down in the comments
