How to use Discord on mobile devices?

Discord released a mobile app shortly after releasing the official software in 2015. All of the software’s web and desktop functionality is also available in the mobile app. You can stay connected with your friends or people in your servers even when you’re not at your computer.

General information

The mobile app for Discord follows the same theme and interface as the desktop app. It’s only modified so it can fit on small screens. Once you join a server, you’re able to swipe left to see all of the server’s members, and swipe right to see a list of text and voice channels.

Discord for mobile devices is currently available for Android and iOS. Simply visit the app store of your device and download the Discord app. Log in to your account and you’re ready to go.

The mobile app is completely free, unlike some other popular chat platforms you have to pay for in order to use them.

Voice chat

Probably the main reason why you would use the mobile app is to stay connected while you’re not at your computer, and for using voice chat. This feature is especially useful for people who have really low-end computers as it allows them to use Discord without having to install the app on their computers. I had experience with using Discord on an old computer and the desktop app would consume too much of the processor that a game I played started having stutters. Using the mobile app solved this problem for me.

Staying connected with other gamers

If you’re a console gamer, having the Discord mobile app will allow you to stay connected with many, many people who use Discord without even owning a computer. Since your app doesn’t have to be open in order to chat, you can use it even when you’re playing mobile games. Staying connected while you are AFK is a big plus, and one of the reasons why people love using Discord.

The mobile app will allow you to do anything that you would do on a computer. There is no lack of options and you’re able to locate users, find servers, and join all chats without a problem. The mobile and computer apps are always the same versions, so there’s no difference between patches too.

Keep your account safe

The Internet is definitely not a safe place and keeping your accounts safe could be troublesome sometimes. There’s a simple way to keep your Discord account safe from hackers. Basically, all you have to do is to enable the two-factor authenticator. It’s not a big deal and you can do it in just a few minutes.

First, you have to download the UNLOQ app from your Google Play or Apple store. Open the UNLOQ app and log in to your account from your computer. Go to the settings of your account and you should see a big button saying “Enable Two-factor auth”. Click it and scan the QR code with your UNLOQ app. You will then get a unique code you need to type in to enable the two-factor authentication.

This makes your account a lot safer and you shouldn’t worry about it getting hacked.
