Friends List

As you accumulate a larger list of Discord friends, you should continue using the home page to quickly find whoever you’re looking for.

Discord’s default sorting system makes it easier to see who is added or available on your friends list.

  • Online – Includes any friends that are currently online
  • All – Displays all online, offline, away, or busy friends
  • Pending – A list of any friend requests you have sent that are still pending, as well as any pending friend requests you have received
  • Blocked – Any users you have blocked in the past. While you probably won’t spend much time looking at this, it is very useful if you accidentally block someone!

That’s all there is to it. With the above information, you can easily get in contact with all of your friends that are active on Discord.
