How to Show You’re Watching YouTube on Discord

It’s possible to show you’re watching YouTube on Discord with only an application and browser extension. Your friends will see the exact YouTube video you’re seeing as a custom status on your Discord profile. Let’s see how to do this!

1. Install the PreMiD application

To begin with, you should go to PreMiD’s website and download the app. This is an application that allows you to show what you’re doing on the web in Discord’s ‘currently playing’ status.

Once on the website, click on the application’s download icon according to the OS you own. Keep this link open, as we will later download the browser extension.

Now, execute the .exe file and follow the instructions to install the application on your computer.

2. Install the PreMiD browser extension

Now, in the same link, scroll down to the ‘Extension‘ section and download the extension according to the browser you use.

Once installed, click on the ‘Extensions’ icon. On Chrome, it will be a puzzle icon at the top right corner of your browser. From there, find the PreMiD browser extension and pin it by clicking on the pin icon. This will make the extension more accessible for you to easily stop sharing what you’re viewing whenever you want.
