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?

The purpose of this feature is to help users have easier access to streaming and to share their current activity with other members. Note that some games are added by default while others need to be added manually.

But, we are not here to talk about that. 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 server mates into thinking you are playing a different game. In fact, you can change the name of any application or game to anything you want.

If Discord does not detect the game:

  1. Click on the blue link button “Add it!”.
  2. This will open a list of all windows currently running on your system. Choose the right window (game).
  3. Once you’ve added the game to your Discord library, click on the game name and change it.

The name of the game should now be changed and all of your friends should be able to see that newly added name.

Here’s our example:
