The Games tab is your new home. It's warm, cozy, and has all your Discord happenings in one place. You'll see:
- News about games you play.
- Launcher for games you play.
- What your friends are playing right now.
- What your friends recently played.
- Your friends' Spotify listening parties, Twitch streams, and Xbox status.
Read below for more scripture on each of these points!
Want to save a few clicks getting into your game? Discord can quickly launch any game that has recently been played on your PC. With just a single click you'll be able to get right to playing.
We'll get you set up with a quick view into what your friends are currently playing. How do we know who to add? Good question. Anyone on your friends list who you chat with will automatically show up. If you don't have a lot of friends on Discord yet, we'll also toss in users who you have talked to in voice chat recently, along with others from servers you chat on.
Server + Voice Channel + Game, oh my.
Depending on the game being played you'll get a quick view into who is taking part. If they are a member of one of your servers and in a voice channel, you'll be able to quick jump over to the server so you can join in the conversation. If the game being played supports direct invites through Rich Presence, you can even join into the game right from this screen.
Not seeing one of your best (new) friends show up? You can easily add them.
Right Click on User > Check 'Show on Games Tab'
Feeling a little cluttered? Uncheck the box, and they'll no longer show up in the games tab.
Note: Your Games page will only display info for 100 different Discord Users.
In addition to being able to jump directly into a game, you'll also be able to see Spotify listening groups, join Twitch streams in progress, and see what your friends are playing on Xbox. Heck, if you're late for a voice call in one of your servers, you'll even be able to join that from the Games tab!

Along with being able to keep up with what all your friends are playing, you'll have the ability to see what is going on with your favorite games. The latest updates / patch notes / clips will be available in the 'What's New' section. Just click on the name o' the game to pop out all the latest news.
If you're located in the European Union we will not automatically populate the Games Tab for you. Instead you'll be asked via pop up if you would like these sweet sweet features to load on your account.
If you're located anywhere else, and do not want these sweet sweet features to load on your account, you can update your Privacy Settings to opt out.
User Settings > Privacy & Safety > Turn Off 'Use data to customize my Discord experience'
User Settings > Appearance > Turn off 'Show Games Tab'
Note: To opt out of having your game information displayed in other peoples Games Tab, just update this setting: User Settings > Game Activity > Turn Off 'Display currently running game as a status message.'
We do hope that you enjoy your new home. It is - after all - warm, cozy and yours!
