Let mobile discord go idle instead of auto invisible/offline!

    I think it's annoying too, if you leave the app running in the background then you should appear idle instead of going offline. If the app is not running in the background then yes, you should appear offline.

    I contacted support about this and all they tell me is "oh go upvote it on the forum". Well that really doesn't give good customer service especially when this topic has been an issue for a while now and they've known about it. All they have to do is set a switch where you can turn the feature on or off; simple as that.

    I have to agree. My roommate gets so angry when I am not online and I know I am. Even if the app is open and the screen goes dark it puts me to being offline. I really do think that they need to fix this issue.

    This should have upvotes in the thousands honestly. As I can only use discord on mobile it’s incredibly annoying how they haven’t fixed this.

    yeah this is annoying, I agree.

    At least, I think an option like "Keep me online" could be added to prevent energy leaks.

    I also find this annoying because I can be online on my phone more often and if I am doing something else on my phone and discord in the background I go on ofline and it would be handy that that and option come that you can turn it on or off if you are doing something else on your phone that other discord users still see that you are online (it may be a bit strange what I am typing now but I am dutch and use google translate )

    Yeah i have someone in the family that doesn't have a PC. I can never tell if their phone is off, out of battery, or if they just aren't looking at the app.

     

    Also, this thing has 57 votes and I never see it at the top of the list on mobile when i sort by votes

    i dislike this too. I am a fairly active discord user. When Im on my mobile, I appear offline when I put my phone down for a dew minutes. Even though Im not looking at my phone, I would like other people to know that I am still online and ready to respond to any incoming messages.

    Almost a year and no feedback on what seems like a fairly simple and useful feature, I have been thinking about using a different chat program on mobile because of this and it looks like I don't have any other choice, which is a shame.

    In particular, this seems to affect push notifications. Anytime I reply to someone using the mobile app when it says they are still online (but they have locked their screen or switched to another app) they don't get the push notification because Discord thinks they are still staring at the message screen. I have to wait a few minutes until they go offline before I send a reply otherwise they don't get the push notification and miss it.

    I agree, I wish it would just put you as "Idle" when you switch to another app or lock your screen. Hopefully the Discord team will fix this soon.

    This would be more ideal since you're still technically online.
