How to Show or Hide the Game You're Playing

Control whether or not people can see what you're playing.

Not everyone wants to share their gaming habits with their friends on Discord, thankfully, you can easily go into your account settings and disable the "Display currently running game as a status message" feature.

To access your account settings, click the settings icon in the bottom left corner of your screen, pictured:

Highlighted is the user settings button

To toggle the game status feature on or off, click "Games" in the menu on the left of the settings screen, and click the toggle button, pictured:

Note: the "Games" button will not be in the menu if your device does not support the game sharing feature. So, if it isn't there, people cannot see what game you're playing on that device, and there's no need to disable the feature.
