Shh, it's a secret! Ephemeral Messages are a new way for Discord bots to send you a private message without having to send you a DM. You may have received this kind of message before from Clyde, and now bots can send them, too!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is this kind of message?
An "Ephemeral Message" is a message sent by Clyde and other Discord bots. It's a message that only you can see. These messages disappear when you dismiss them, wait long enough, or restart Discord.
Q: When can bots send me ephemeral messages?
Bots can only send you this kind of message when you use a Slash Command. If the bot you're using hasn't implemented Slash Commands, they'll have to DM you instead.
Q: Help! The message disappeared!
Ephemeral Messages are designed to not stick around forever. They'll disappear after a little bit of time, or when you restart Discord.
Q: Can I delete the message?
You can click or tap on "Dismiss message" to dismiss the message and remove it from your chat.
