How To Change Game Name On Discord

In Discord, you can make it look like you're playing anything you want. Here's a simple guide on how to change game name on Discord.

Did you know that you can add video games to Discord?

This feature is intended to help users enjoy easier access to streaming and to share their current activity with others. Note that some games will be added by default while others need to be added manually.

We aren’t here to talk about adding games. Instead, we want to tell you how you can change the name of a game on Discord.

You can do this as a joke to trick your friends or fellow server members into thinking you are playing a different game. In fact, you can change the name of any application or game to any other name you want.
