How To Add Games To Your Discord Library

Is your game not registered on Discord for some reason? Here's a simple guide on how to add games to your Discord library, including screenshots.

Perhaps Discord’s best feature is its ability to stream any game to dozens of viewers. The fact that this streaming has minimal impact on your system’s performance makes this feature even more impressive.

However, when attempting to initiate a stream, you might have observed that certain games are not registered automatically by Discord. Even if you have Activity Status enabled, which is another helpful feature, Discord won’t be able to display what you are currently playing.

This happens because Discord does not have official support for all video games. Thankfully, there is an option to add games to your Discord library manually. This article explains exactly how you can do that.
