So today, in this article, I am going to discuss how you can send a message to someone who is not your friend on discord. First, I am going to discuss how you can DM a friend, and then I am going to show you how you can message someone who is not your friend. So without further delay let’s dive into our topic.

What is a DM On Discord?

The discord app is available for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS devices. A DM or Direct message is one conversation between you and another person. These massages are strictly restricted between the two persons. You can send DMs to your friends and you can even send DM’s to other people who are not your friends but they are on the same server as you.

How to DM Someone on Discord

Before discussing how you can message someone on discord who is not on your friend list, I am going to discuss how you can message someone who is on your friend list. I am going to mention the steps here to DM someone from your friend list.

  • Open the Discord Application.
  • Login to your account using your credentials.
  • You need to find the option called “Direct Message” on this application.

Your friends on discord will be visible on your profile. You just need to click on the name of your friend that you want to send the message. Mainly in discord, your entire friend list is divided into three categories: All, Online, and Pending.

These three categories are pretty much self-explanatory because by all means where you can see all your friends and under the online section it will show the name of those friends who are currently online, and ultimately under the pending section, it will show the list of your friends who are yet to accept your friend request.

Can you message someone on Discord Who is Not on Your Friend List?

Now you might be having a question in your mind: can we send a message to someone who is not on our friend list? The answer to this question is no you can’t. Discord doesn’t provide any functionality to send someone a message who is not on your friend list.

But there is another way around to message an individual without them on your friend list. The first thing you need to know is how the person you want to send the message to has set their account up. Privacy settings will be a very helpful option to choose the messages that you want to receive. You can change your privacy settings by following the steps below.

Click on the settings menu, which is the gear icon at the bottom of the application.

Once you have successfully entered the settings menu, locate the Privacy and safety menu from the tab on your left-hand side.

There you will see three options which are “Keep me safe”, “My Friends are nice”, and “I live on the edge”. These are different message configurations. This will determine whether you can send someone a message who is not on your friend list.

No one can send you a DM if you have chosen any of the first two options. But if you have chosen the third option, then anyone can send you any message if they are on the same server as you are. You also need to enable another option right below this one that says “Allow Direct Message From Server Member”. People also use this a VOIP and send funny text to speech.
