Discord tests new ways to help you find good servers through Discover feature

Discord is a popular IM client for online gaming communities. The app and service allows users to create different servers for a dedicated umbrella topic, and then create different channels within the server for further topic bifurcation. Users can then talk to each other within these channels, and you can keep track of the expected conversation topics within the channel. Discord has been growing in popularity recently, adding in gaming-oriented features like displaying game activity to friends, and more. Now, the official Discord app on Android is testing out a new way to help users find interesting servers to join.


An APK teardown can often predict features that may arrive in a future update of an application, but it is possible that any of the features we mention here may not make it in a future release. This is because these features are currently unimplemented in the live build and may be pulled at any time by the developers in a future build.

Currently, on the Discord app, you can join other servers if you have an invite link to that server. You can also view mutual servers between you and a friend. With Discord v9.4.8, the service is testing the ability to view other servers that your friends are in but you aren’t already in. Further, you will also get server recommendations for you, which we are guessing originates from the games you have installed. On desktop, you can already find servers this way, but now this functionality is coming over to Android.

<string name="discover">Discover</string>\n<string name="discover_communities">Discover - Find new communities on Discord</string>\n<string name="discover_friend_servers">Servers your friends are in</string>\n<string name="discover_recommended">Recommended for you</string>

Having more servers to interact in increases the time you spend within the app. This should help out Discord in increasing its popularity. If you’re looking to join, you can also join the official XDA-Developers.com server on Discord.
