Games (aka Games)

There are a couple ways for games and their developers to work with Discord. Rich Presence is a great way to more deeply integrate with Discord. It lets you:

  • Launch into game sessions, parties, and groups directly from Discord
  • Launch into your game's spectate mode directly from Discord
  • Allow your players to ask to join their friends' games
Rich Presence is free, open-sourced, and self-serve, so check out the How To guide and get started!We also have a Voice and Text Chat SDK to power in-game communication. This SDK is in private beta.
