Discord is a free voice, video, and text chat app that's used by tens of millions of people ages 13+ to talk and hang out with their communities and friends.
People use Discord daily to talk about many things, ranging from art projects and family trips to homework and mental health support. It's a home for communities of any size, but it's most widely used by small and active groups of people who talk regularly. (From Discord.com)
The user status in Discord consists of seven settings to serve as quickly changeable notification settings. It was inspired by the status option in many other chat and VoIP programs. The status can be changed by clicking on your profile picture in the left drawer in the desktop or mobile app.
Online mode is the default status. You receive notifications, can use Discord and show up in the member list normally. You also will have a green circle on your profile picture.
If I am Online, it means I am on Discord right now.
The Idle status performs the same way as the Online status. Notifications come up normally, and you can use Discord normally.
The Idle status is also set automatically if there was no mouse movement or typing for a set amount of time while set as online. When there's mouse movement within the window again, you get put back into online status unless Idle status was set manually. Idle displays as a yellow moon-shaped indicator on your profile.
This status was previously known as Away and its indicator was a yellow clock.
If I am Idle, it means that either I am working on something else and I have Discord minimized or i'm not at my computer at this time.
Do Not Disturb (also known as DND) disables all desktop and push notifications, even from mentions. Do Not Disturb displays as a red status indicator on your profile.
If I am DND, it means you can message me, but I won't receive it in any way at that time.
The Streaming status can only be set when streaming on an account integrated with your Discord account. It performs the same way as Do Not Disturb and displays as a purple status indicator on your profile.
If I am Streaming, it means I am playing a game and I am livestreaming it on YouTube or Mixer.
Invisible lets you use Discord normally while appearing offline, however the typing indicator will still be displayed when typing. Invisible and offline statuses display as a gray status indicator on your profile.
If I am invisible you won't be able to tell because it shows as Offline.
This status is applied to your account as soon as every connected client loses connection.
If I am Offline, it means I am away from Discord my computer right now.
A green phone icon is applied when an user is connected via the mobile app. It can’t be applied manually.
If I am on a phone, it simply means that I am on Discord right now but on a phone instead of a computer.
Custom statuses are a profile feature on Discord. It allows users to set their own message for other users to see, acting like a playing status. If I am Online, Idle or DND, you can find my custom status below my regular status.
