More status options than "Playing"
What I think would be cool is if we would be able to set our status to other things than just "playing *game*". So what I would like to see added is that when choosing your status (Online, Inactive, Do not disturb), there would be a drop down menu where you can choose things like "Cooking *food*, Watching *movie*, Having a *activity*. If no game is being played the choosen status would show instead of "playing game".
Here are some ideas that could be featured:
Watching "Rouge One"
Having a "party"
Working with "After Effects"
Looking to play "Battlefield 1"
This is what it could look like: http://imgur.com/a/0iSgh
The "Looking to Play" status would actually be really cool.
This would be really nice within development discords. I don't use discord for gaming, but rather game dev, and it would be a hell of a lot nicer if this was the case.
Should have been done from the beginning!!
I'm surprised this hasn't already been added.
See but now I'm just gonna set it to cooking up memes and leave it there
Also maybe Twitch stream detection? So when you go live, instead of saying Playing "[game]" it would say Streaming "[game]"
on status options.. we also would need "Wife Aggro" as a option to select...
I mean, just let us type our own status message.
Literally came here to post this, I agree.
Keep in mind this is a gamer chating app
Also, if you're working in a game engine or something like that, it should say "Working In"
I.E. "Working In Unity"
or "Working In Unreal Engine 4"
or "Working In Game Maker Studio"
As is, people are already using loopholes to set non-game statii, so the demand is already there. Even without that loophole, Twitch integration copies the stream title, which is freely editted. On top of that, Twitch creative is here to stay, and Twitch IRL is up and coming. I know many communities that are more than just gaming groups - they're social-families that partake in other group activities. Only makes sense that Discord grows with it.
Maybe even and auto update for music too? Listening to (Goes off YouTube or a music player)??
I agree with "Looking to Play" status but other than that, no
Actually you can do something like "working with" if you add the programs you work with (autocad, photoshop..etc) in the "detect game" tab in settings

I propose symbols also be integrated into the status to promote special circumstances, such as a cross for emergency situations, a projector silhouette for movies, a paintbrush for doing artwork, etc.
It'd be a nice improvemnt :3
I'd love this for the ability to show/share what I'm watching.
I would love it if there was a status like "music" and it could show the song you are currently listening to. Similar to last.fm and their scrobbling plug-ins for foobar etc.
"muh discord was made for gaming" bye
i really think this idea is really creative and cool, would love to see this one put in, next to video/screenshare of course
maybe also connect like a netflix or video streaming thing and when you watch something on it, it displays what youre watching under your name w/o you having to change it
