Streaming on Discord through mobile devices wasn’t possible even some days ago. In February 2021, an update came from Discord, which made the stream on mobile devices possible. When you stream on Discord via mobile devices, you can add up to 50 audiences in a single channel.
As mobile streaming is not that much popular yet, many people don’t know how to stream on Discord mobile. Streaming in front of audiences has become a lot easier because of this update on the Discord mobile version. Besides streaming, features like voice calls, video calls, and chatting are also available on Discord mobile.
The Ways of Streaming on Discord Mobile
The update of mobile streaming on Discord just arrived some months ago. Before that, people used to stream their phone’s screen on Discord via laptop or desktop. So, there two ways of streaming your mobile on Discord, and those are:
- Stream on Discord mobile via Discord mobile app
- Stream on Discord mobile via computer or laptop
How to Stream on Discord Mobile – Via Mobile App
With the last update of the Discord mobile app on February 2021, it’s very much doable to stream on Discord mobile. The processes of streaming on Discord mobile via the mobile app are:
Step-1: Download and Open Discord App
First, you need to download the Discord mobile app on your mobile phone, as you will find it in Google Play Store. Install the app after downloading, and create your Discord account through it. Then open this Discord mobile app on your phone.
Step-2: Create Your Voice Channel
To share your screen in front of the audience, you need to create your voice channel first. After entering the Discord page, you will see various options all over the page. You will find the “Voice Channel” option with the “+” icon at its right in the middle of the screen. Click on that “+” icon to create a new voice channel of yours.
Step-3: Channel Entering
You can name the channel of yours as you want. At the bottom of where the “Voice Channel” option was situated, you will see the channel name. And you need to click on that channel name that you created just a while ago.
As you will click to enter your channel, a new tab will pop up. That tab will contain the “Join Voice” option, and you need to press it for entering.
Step-4: Member Adding
As you will click the “Join Voice” option, you will enter your created channel. After entering the channel, you need to add members there. When you enter that channel, a new page will appear before you on the mobile screen. It will contain the option of “Invite Friends,” and you need to click on that to add audiences to your mobile stream.
You can invite members to your server in two different ways. One of these is directly adding members from your friend list, and the other is via an invitation link. You can add up to 50 audiences to your channel.
Step-5: Screen Sharing
When all the desired members are connected to your channel, you can start screen sharing in front of them. There will be some icons at the bottom of the member’s list for doing various actions. The second icon will be like a mobile-shaped sign with a right-indicating arrow in middle.
Click on that icon to start the streaming process in front of the audience. Before the final step of streaming, the Discord app will require your confirmation. There will be two options named “Cancel” and “Start Now” on the newly opened notification tab. Choose the “Start Now” option to start the streaming procedure finally.
You may face a Discord mobile streaming not working issue at some point in your usage. Then you need to close the app and then enter it again to start streaming. Hopefully, you will be able to stream on Discord mobile without facing any difficulties.

Before the Discord mobile app arrived, people used to stream mobile screens via laptop or desktop. The processes for that are:

Step-2: Import Phone’s Screen on Computer
Open the application you want to stream, and then swipe down or up to enter the menu bar. There, you will see an option named “Screen Mirror,” and clicking there will bring another option named “Lonely Screen.” Select it, and it will start to transmit your mobile screen to your laptop or desktop.
