What's New

Version 2.3.3

- We did some heavy tinkering on Discord's core infrastructure. All the bullets in this section are related to this.
- Large servers perform better in general. CPU and network usage is about the same regardless of server size (whether a hundred people or a hundred thousand people).
- This means Discord uses a lot less data now. Long live your data plan.
- This also means Discord uses a lot less battery now. Longer live your battery life. Also, the iOS app loads faster.
- Large Discord servers can now grow much larger. This one's for you, Fortnite.
- Offline members are no longer hidden after you cross one-hundred members. We turned this off long ago for tech... and it is back. Offline lists in large servers are still hidden, though.
- SLOW SUCKS, so quickly switch between servers, DMs, and channels with the all new and literally named Quick Switcher.
- Invite links now embed super cozy like a California king.
- Password Manager support on login for that easy yet secure access.
- You can now long press to copy links. **Long** awaited, amirite!?!?!??!!!!!
- Xbox users can now connect their Xbox account to Discord to show what game they're playing on Xbox in Discord.
- Invite links to voice channels now take you to the appropriate voice channel HOW CONVENIENT.
- NSFW channel toggle is now available in channel settings.

Improving, bit by bit


Discord is a lovely app. The range of options, customization, and ways to interact is astounding. The options keep growing, and piece by piece, it comes together! I use it to chat all around and find it as a wonderful alternative to the options out there. (cough, skype.) However, the app still has some growing to do:
•The bug where a message duplicates and moves up, then is stuck there on every chat in the same place, overlaying itself across the screen, is still ever present. It’s a bit better since you don’t have to go hunting for the chat you lost, but still annoying and unintentional.
•Some images and links have trouble loading. The image will show up fine in chat, and the link opens in Safari great, but tapping it to zoom in mid-app use causes the image to fail loading. Frustrating when trying to read something with low amounts of small text. This might also be a Tumblr thing, since this is most common with links from there.
•A bit of an issue when opening settings while the keyboard was out somewhere else; the grey rectangle for covering up typing when the keyboard is out stays out, while the keyboard is put away. It obscures the lower half of the screen, goes away after a bit (~10 seconds,) but is still unintentional and not fun.
There are probably more others will tell you. Not sure where you’ll go next, but I’m awaiting the trip. Many loves 💛💜

Hey there, I'm really sorry for the server issues that have been going on recently. It's been smooth sailing in the last few days, but we've got a detailed explanation of the server issues over here if you're interested:

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.

Discord is fine but buggy.

Discord is a great app for communication and stuff for other purposes/uses. Although, lately I spotted some issued bugs on discord. Lately, it has keep crashing for me, and won’t let me back on. Sometimes when I go fast in roles or chats or something. It crashes like nothing, and then I’m stuck outside of the app and no available to join back in, regarding this issue it made me mad. But this app does have it’s benefits. Such as great communication, and things as I said before. Therefore, the reason why I have a 3 Star. Mainly because the bugs are highly repetitive and annoying. I generally find discord great, but the app tends to crash too often and not load on back often. Which also makes me unable to communicate with other friends or people. It’s bad for IOS for some reason. That ticks me off when I see the same things not be fixed or repeating keep coming back and start to annoy me. As I write this, I even TRY to get back on, but it won’t let me and I crash, every time I get a update from discord, I get more crashes/bugs for some apparent reason in the IOS version of discord. Regarding the fact atm, I can’t even go back on discord. Discord does tick me off in many ways. Such as, the crashing, the multiple bugs, and the community itself sometimes. I would like to get noticed about this issue and others that people are currently experiencing in the IOS version of discord. - Some random guy on the internet.
