How to Get a New Username on Discord

To get a new username, update your username if you’ve received a notification from Discord. Otherwise, wait until the feature is rolled out for you.

The update can take months to fully roll out. 

You will get the notification to change and get a new username for your account. Older and Nitro accounts will get the feature first. 

If you have gotten the notification already, you can change your username by going to User Settings > My Account > Edit username (On Desktop.)

On your mobile phone, open the Discord app > go to the profile tab > select username > change username.

Alternatively, you can go directly by selecting the “Get Started” option from the “Action needed” notice.
