What are groups on Discord?

Groups are a lot different than servers. First of all, they are created directly from your DMs, so they are private. Second, any activity that happens in a group chat will stay there and will not be visible to other members (unless you add them) and servers. There are also two important pieces of information you need to know before creating a Discord group:

  1. In order to add someone to a group, you need to be friends with them on Discord. If you’re not, you can click on their profile and click “Send Friend Request”.
  2. You cannot have more than ten people in a Discord group.

  5. To add friends, click the “Add Friends to DM” button (person icon with a plus sign +). This is found at the top right of the chat window.

Removing someone on Discord groups

There is one simple way on how you can remove someone from a group. However, if you feel as though they are harassing you of want an even permanent solution, you should probably opt for the “Block” option. Remember: since this is a group chat, it’s different from channels and servers. This also means that you cannot temporarily “kick” someone out of the chat.

Method 1: Removing someone from the group

If you want to remove someone from a group on Discord, make sure that you are the coordinator (creator) of the group. You cannot make any changes to the group otherwise.

  1. First, open the Discord app on a desktop web browser or on the desktop app. Log in with your information.
  2. Now, click the “Home” icon which is found at the top left edge of your screen. It is the official Discord icon.
  3. In the column beside the icon, navigate to the friend group with the person you wish to remove. Click on the group chat.
  4. On the right side, you should be able to see a column with all the members of the group listed. Right-click the Discord tag of the person you wish to remove. From the drop-down menu, select “Remove From Group”.

It’s that easy! Make sure then when you are following any of the methods listed above, you are doing it via the Discord desktop app or web browser. The steps for adding and removing friends from groups are different on mobile devices!
