For fans of the popular game chat client Discord, there's a new update that makes communicating with fellow gamers even easier. The recent changes makes it easier for developers to game jump, spectate, and shoot out party invites. What's better than the tool itself is its name: Rich Presence. Sounds like a smooth jazz album and we're kind of into it.

Rich Presence is designed for a more fluid blend between Discord users themselves and the games being played. Whether you want to show off those sick moves in-game, or shoot out some party invites - there's a quite a few new additions to the way Discord runs. According to the company themselves:

  • Viral Exposure
    • "Players love to show off what they are playing with Discord’s status feature. With Rich Presence you can add beautiful art and detailed information to show off your game even more. This lets players know what their friends are doing, so they can decide to ask to join in and play together."
  • Party Invite
    • "Every day millions of gamers start their session on Discord and then jump into a game. By hooking up the Join API, players can send party invites directly in Discord which will launch your game client. No more fussing around with friend codes and adding each other on other services."
  • Full Party
    • "Similar to party invites above, increase engagement by letting players request an invite right within Discord. After a confirmation, both players will be partied up and ready to play."
  • Spectate Mode
    • "Have a spectate mode in your game? You can now add a Spectate button to a player’s profile so any of their friends can watch via your client in just one click. Players can also send a spectate invite to any chat channel they’d like."
