    there's no reason we cant have a simple flag for if we want to display it or not.

    I understand why Scrivener is a verified 'game' (tool) on Discord, but holy hell -- I leave it open all the time because when I'm not playing d&d, I'm planning for d&d, and I use Scrivener as my main note-taking software. Nobody else needs to know I'm on Scrivener, and 50% of the time, I'm not actually on it, it's just open in the background. Turning off all running game status messages is a wholly ungraceful way to go about having a 'sleek' user icon when I have a single program open in the back because I like other people knowing what game I'm playing.

     

    I can't imagine this is a difficult feature to implement.

    Similar to what Recursion said, I leave aseprite open all the time and I don't even get why it's verified; it's not a game at all, even if it's game-related. I thought this was an option and I thought this was already requested 2 years ago, and even then it was overdue. What happened? It should be just a simple toggle like how you can toggle the overlay.

    I did some research on this issue -- along with verified games, Discord thought it'd be cute to give users 'Verified tools' under the same system/name. It's genuinely annoying. I see the appeal to some, especially in content-creator servers, but there is no worldly reason that it shouldn't have a toggle on/off. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be very high on Discord's priorities, even though again, it probably wouldn't take a single dev more than half a day to implement.

    This is super important to me aswell. I have been searching for a day or so now how to disable apps/Games from showing, because I sometimes leave one run in the background for days... but then Discord won't show whatever REAL games I'm playing, because it only shows the app I leave running in the back...

    And I continually have people asking me like "What's this thing you're playing?"..."Why aren't you playing your normal games"... Meanwhile I AM also playing normal games, but Discord keeps reverting back to showing only one.

    Join now! I am very annoyed that this feature shows all games in status. It’s useful, but I don’t want all people to know that I’m using a specific XXX program / game. This violates my personal area.

    I seriously do not understand why this wasn't implemented right at the very start, it is simply logical some people wouldn't want certain games/apps to show up in their Game Activity. That aside though, people have been asking for this for two years and it is still nowhere in sight, I honestly cannot comprehend how or why. Just let us rename Verified applications, or block them from showing up, how goddamn hard can it bloody be.

    This has to be implemented.

    I agree this would be a useful feature, I leave Aseprite open a lot of the time even though I'm only using it around half of the time its open. It gives my friends the impression I am busy spriting when I'm not/spending more time spriting than I actually am. In order to combat this I need to either turn off game activity as a whole, or close Aseprite and re-open it whenever I want to work again. Having a toggle for certain games/tools could only be beneficial, and shouldn't take long at all to implement.

    This privacy control is very needed. Plus, some games are over-detected.

    I think its funny that I can stream Scrivener on Discord... not sure why anyone would want to see me do a bunch of writing haha. But yeah, I agree with everyone else here; this feature should be implemented.

    This 100%.

    Also, why can we not search, filter, or sort the list of detected games? People play hundreds of games in the course of months. You'd think they would want to accommodate the people who are hardcore gamers when they run a chat software aimed at gamers. Maybe if/when they add the feature here, to filter game activity, they will also add some way to sift through the long list.

    This would be especially useful for non-game apps like VoiceAttack which are designed to be left open.

    This needs to be done. I'm using a file viewer called Nomad because my default Windows file explorer is broken. Now it says I'm playing Nomad all the time, which is a very different game. It even has the icon for that game.

    i use wallpaper engine, and it sometimes starts running in the background without me actually being on it actively. consequently, it shows up on discord as me playing it, and i'd really like the option to block it

    SteamVR is what I want to hide from Discord. It's doing the opposite of Rich Presence and hiding my VR games.

    Would love to have this to hide games/programs I have up in background 90% of the time while they're not in use.

    +1 for me. This is boring to get questions about that "Synergy" game I'm playing all day long :D
