When Discord announced its Characteristic of Stage Discovery in may at the same time he said he was working on adding conversations in the threads. A few months later, that feature is now available across computer, web and mobile applications.
You can turn a message into a thread by tapping the “#” button that appears when you hover over something someone said. You can also start over by tapping the “+” icon on the chat bar, then selecting “Create Thread”. In any case, you can see all the threads you are currently participating in on the sidebar. When you open a thread from the chat channel log, it will appear on the other sidebar on the right side of the interface, so you can follow both conversations at the same time. By default, threads will be automatically archived after 24 hours. The idea behind the time limit is to keep the channels messy, according to Discord.
If you are on a server, people with Nitro subscriptions you have risen to another level, you will also have the opportunity to participate in private threads. They will not appear in the channel list on the server, and the only way to participate in it is if someone invites you to talk. Reinforced channels can do this by archiving threads up to one week after they are started, instead of 24 hours after the fact. By introducing threads, Discord also adds new permissions. Channel owners can decide who can participate in and manage public and private threads as needed.
Disagreement today begins with the introduction of thread. Community officials can enable the function early. However, on August 17, the company plans to enable threads on all servers.
