How to change your status on discord

Discord is a communication platform that was launched in 2015 catering to the gaming community. It had all the features that a gamer could asl for; voice chat, video call, screen sharing, and groups. Though discord had exceptional features it was quite underrated for years because it was used only by the gaming community. Due to this reason many people did not know about the application. But after some years Discord understood that there is a greater demand for applications with features similar to discord, so they constantly updated discord gathering more users over the period. 

Discord has an amazing feature where people can set the status to let know others what their current status is; whether they are active, idle, or offline.

Though this feature has been around for a very long time, many do not know how to use it so in this article, we are going to look at how to set custom discord status
