  1. Open Discord and click on the Friends option.
  2. Click the Add friend button.
  3. In the search field, enter the user’s DiscordTag, and click the Send friend request button.

If you are part of a server with several other users, and you want to add one of them to your friends list, the easiest way is to do it directly through their profile.

  1. Right-click on the avatar of a Discord user, and then on Profile
  2. Click the Send friend request button.

That simple.

You can also right-click on the avatar, and then click on Add Friend. The result is the same.

Whichever method you choose to add a contact to your friends, the request needs to be approved by the user, and only then, it will appear on your list. The feature offers some advantages, such as managing which servers you access in common, and makes contact between people a lot easier.
