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.

Adding Games To Discord Library
Adding a video game to your Discord library is quick and straightforward. All you need to do is follow these steps:
- Start the video game you want to add to your library.
- Open Discord and go into User Settings.
- Scroll to the bottom and open the Activity Status tab.
- Look for the button that says Add it!
- If your game is running, you should be able to see that window and select it. After doing this, click Add Game.
After finishing this task, every time you begin the game, Discord will promptly recognize it, and you can instantly stream it.
From this menu, you can also enable “Display current activity as a status message” to show your friends/server members which game you are currently playing.
That’s it! As you can see, adding games to your Discord library is quick and easy.
