See what Android games your friends are playing with Discord update

discord on smartphone - See what Android games your friends are playing with Discord update

Now, XDA-Developers has noticed a “Game Detection Service” in the Discord Android app. The feature simply lets the app detect what Android game you’re playing, then gives you the option of displaying the game as a status message.

To activate the Game Detection Service, you’ll need to visit User Settings > Games. You then need to simply enable the two toggles found in this menu, and that’s pretty much it. The function also requires the usage access permission to work properly.

Once you’re up and running, your status should automatically update with the name of the Android game you’re currently playing. It’s a pretty neat feature for Android as, with the exception of Google Play Games, we don’t really anything similar on the platform.

The feature is only available in version 7.9.9 right now, but the stable Play Store release is version 7.9.5. XDAreckons you can enrol in the beta program to gain access to 7.9.9, although I’m still seeing the older version. The other alternative is to sideload the update from the likes of APKMirror
