Discord is a voice and text app designed for gamers that lets you easily find, join, and chat with friends. But what if you don’t want everyone to know what game you’re playing? Here’s how to hide what game you’re playing on Discord.
Step One: Download and Install BetterDiscord
If you want to keep everyone from knowing what games you’re playing, you’re going to need two things: the first is a program called BetterDiscord, and the second is a browser extension called “UserCSS”. You can get both of these by following the links below.
Once you have both of these installed, you’re ready to move on to the next step.
Step Two: Enable the Plugin
Now that you’ve installed the plugin, it’s time to enable it. To do so, head back to the main OBS window and click on “Tools” in the menu bar. From the drop-down menu that appears, select “DiscordHidePlugin.” A small window will pop up; make sure the “Enable Plugin” box is checked, then click “OK.”
Step Three: Change the Game Status
Now that you have everything set up the way you want it, it’s time to start playing some games! All you need to do is launch the game you want to play, and Discord will automatically detect that you’re playing and display it on your profile.
But what if you don’t want people to know what game you’re playing? Discord has a feature that lets you do just that. Simply click on the “Games” tab at the bottom of the Discord window, then click on the “Game Status” option and select “Invisible.” This will hide what game you’re playing from your profile, and people will only see that you’re online.
If you ever want to change your game status back to visible, simply follow the same steps and select “Online” instead of “Invisible.”
Step Four: Customize Your Status
Launch the Discord app on your computer and log in with your account details, then click on the “User Settings” (gear icon) option in the left-hand pane.
Click on the “Status” tab in the left-hand pane, then click on the “Custom Status” option.
In the “Custom Status” window, select “Do Not Disturb” from the “Status Type” drop-down menu.
Click on the “Set a Custom Status” message box and type in whatever game you’re playing. For example, you could type ” playing Apex Legends.”
Click on the “Save Changes” button.
Now that you know how to hide what game you’re playing on Discord, you can keep your personal life and your gaming life separate. Whether you’re trying to avoid spoilers or just don’t want everyone to know how much time you’re spending on Overwatch, this feature is a valuable addition to the Discord app.
