As you explore the platform, you may come across new people you’d like to connect with or even invite your existing friends to join you. This tutorial will show you through the process of adding friends on Discord, but if what you want is to send a server invitation link, you should check our tutorial on how to invite someone to a discord server.
Let’s get into the tutorial!
Steps to Adding Friends on Discord
To add friends on Discord, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Locate the User’s Discord Tag
You’ll need your friend’s Discord Tag, which consists of their username followed by a unique four-digit number (e.g., UserName#1234).
If the person is already a member of a server you’re in, click or tap on their name in the user list to view their Discord Tag.
If you don’t share a server with the person, ask them to provide you with their Discord Tag so you can send a friend request.
Step 2: Send a Friend Request
In the Discord app, click or tap on the “Friends” button located at the top-left corner of the window.
At the top of the DM screen, you’ll find an “Add Friend” button. Click it and enter the Discord Tag of the person you want to add and click on “Send Friend Request”.
The person will receive a notification about your friend request. Once they accept the request, they will be added to your friend list, and you can start chatting with them.
Managing Your Friends List
Once you’ve added friends on Discord, you can manage your friends list in the “Friends” tab. There, you can view your online and offline friends, pending friend requests, and even create groups for group chats.
