What's New

Version 2.2.4

** General bug fixes **

So hot right now:
- Discord is now a share option in the iOS share into menu because sharing is caring and we care about you, bb.
- Discord now remembers what server and channel you were last viewing when you reopen the app. It’s like saving your game except Discord is not a video game and I’m too tired to think of a good metaphor.
- We now show you an instant invite after you make a server so you can invite friends faster than Scorpion can say “get over here.”
- We now use revolutionary PNG technology instead of JPG, so you’ll see fewer broken avatars and server icons.
- Added the Verified Server icon because it should be there.
- More parts of the app now respect your theme choice.

These bugs got slapped:
- Fixed an issue with text channel links that were unable to be tapped upon. Tapping shall commence once again.
- Our internal ghost hunters fixed an issue where invites to voice channels would create “ghost” text channels. Finally earning their keep, I guess. I just wish they didn’t smell like warm butter and fresh mulch. The real question is when to kill a joke. I’d say, now is a good time.
- Fixed a strange issue where blocking someone broke swiping around the app.
- Cleaned up a crash where tapping someone somewhere when something wasn’t loaded sometimes didn’t like that and blew up. Less blewing up.

One of the worst iOS App experiences I’ve ever had


I love discord, my friends and I use it as our main means of communication. However, that means I expect a lot out of this app, and when I need to message a friend or join a voice call I expect the app to work. Sadly, the majority of the time it just doesn’t. Even with a fairly new iPhone 7, which has no issues anywhere else, discord finds a way to make me fear my phone is broken only to find out it’s just the app not recognizing my headphones or crashing for the umpteenth time. At times I try to open the app just to have it crash multiple, and I stress MULTIPLE, times before I’m able to finally establish a connection with our server. Not to mention crashes once the app has actually opened; good luck trying to open a gif or send a photo from a bit far back in your photo album. The weirdest by far is the headphone issue. I for the longest time thought it was on my end, I went through three separate pairs of earbuds trying to get them to work—even trying an older pair with an auxiliary to lightning adapter—only to find that once I tested them in any app other than discord they worked fine.

I want to love this app. Like I said, I love discord itself, the Mac version is wonderful, but for the love of Swift 3.0 I’ve never had such a horrible app experience with a platform I love so much.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from the iOS version of discord; at least until some major bug fixes have been implemented.

Keeps crashing and marking unread messages as read.


I like Discord for what it offers, but the iOS app crashes randomly whenever I try to load a picture, gif, song, or other upload someone else posted, and crashes when I try to post pictures quite frequently. I know that a lot of people upload stuff, so the fact that it crashes as often as it does is a major concern for me.

Another issue is that the app has decided to randomly mark all messages in random chat channels as read when I open them, even though I’ve still got dozens to read before I reach the end of the string. Or I’ll be reading the messages, and suddenly it marked all messages as read, to include ones that happen while I’m reading, and not even remotely caught up. It happens randomly, so I don’t even know what might be the issue. It might happen to a chat every time I open it, or just once in a while but it’s a bug I want to see gone. Being tagged in a message, and then having that indicator removed randomly is an issue. I don’t always have time to read everything in one sitting, so I want to be assured that I can read it later. It is a major issue when it starts you over at the end of the conversation, and doesn’t save from where you had to leave off. (This is mostly for my admin duties on servers.)

I like that I have the ability to take Discord with me, but if I can’t use it half the time, then it’s like I don’t even have it at all.

I'm so sorry about the trouble you're having with Discord, and we personally understand any frustrations you may have when running into bugs on our app! I'll be happy to forward this feedback to the team. In order to help troubleshoot the issue, could you please try to reinstall the app on your phone? Also, are you having this issue in every server and channel or is there a specific server that you're experiencing this in? If the problem is isolated in one server, could you please ask if it's a common issue amongst others in the server as well? Lastly, we're always here for you, so please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have at!

Pretty Good


All in all, it's a great app. In fact, I'd say it's nearly perfect on PC. However, there are some features on PC that you can just not access on mobile. For example, you can't change privacy settings to turn off DMs on a certain server, which can be a struggle for people with, uh, fans. Another thing is that you can't change somebody's role on mobile, which is very aggravating. I'm a moderator on a server and we have a specific role to give to misbehaving people which prevents them from sending messages. But, I can only do my job as moderator if I'm on my PC, because mobile won't let me change roles. In addition, for whatever reason, certain pictures refuse to upload, and it’s not the channel settings because it’s only with certain pictures (only on mobile). The last thing I recommend, which is currently neither on mobile or PC, is having some version of read receipts for DMs. I know that's probably gonna be controversial, but I personally know that some of my friends are big YouTubers, so they get caught up, and forget. However, if I was able to tell if they'd read my message, I'd be able to yell at — er, uh, talk to them about it.
