It’s hard to say that Discord’s voice chat platform has any significant disadvantages. At most, there are only a few minor ones.
One of those minor disadvantages has to be the fact that you must have a person’s username and their user ID number to add them as a friend. But, of course, that is done with privacy in mind.
Either way, if you want any of your friends to add you to Discord, you will need to find your user ID.
The quickest way to get your user ID is by opening Discord and then clicking on your username next to your profile picture. This will automatically copy your username together with your user ID.
Alternatively, you could go into User Settings and in My Account. That’s where you will find your user ID. Simple!
