We’re constantly listening to your feedback and working to improve how Discord feels and functions. 

© Medium | Tidying Up Discord
Our goal is to improve Discord with new features that don’t make it bulky and take away from the core chat experience. There are two areas in the app where we weren’t hitting these marks: Activity Feed and the Library. As of today, we are saying goodbye to both of these features.
The Activity Feed was meant to give you an easy way to stay up to date with game news and let you quickly see what your friends are up to. It wasn’t serving either of these purposes well and added bulk.
To help you stay up to date, last fall we launched Channel Following: a way for you to beam important announcements from Verified and Partnered servers directly to your own serverSince you pick what you follow, Channel Following offers more control and customization over the updates you receive from your favorite games, communities, content creators, and streamers.
You use Discord to hang out on your servers with your friends. We want you to customize those spaces with the stuff you care about, and not have to worry about opening Discord and seeing updates for a game you played once 8 months ago…oh, Activity Feed…
To quickly let you see what your friends are up to, we’re also moving Now Playing to the Friends tab.
We are also saying goodbye to the Universal Game Launcher and Library tab.
Improving also means removing features that our users aren’t finding useful, like the UGL and Library tab. We’re removing both of these to keep your Discord experience fast and clean. If you have bought or will buy a game from Discord, your games will always be accessible. The Library tab will stay for you, and you’ll have the option to disable it from User Settings > Appearances.
As always, drop us a message if you have a suggestion and thanks for reading.
