What is the Longest Discord Call? Who's Broken the Record?

Lindsay Hayes

There's no definite record of who has had the longest Discord call. But if you were to check Reddit, you'd see that there's been a bunch of users who have been on call for days on end. The truth is, you can be on a Discord call for as long as you want since the platform hasn't set any restrictions on this (includes server, group, and private chat calls)

Although I can't tell you about the longest Discord call, I can tell you about the longest call I've been on - it's 2 hours with a group I was in. I thought this was impressive until my friend told me he was on a voice channel for almost a day once. I did a bit of digging on calls on Discord after this since I wanted to learn more.

If you want to know what I learned, you can read ahead.


What is the Longest Discord Call?

To be honest, it's hard to say who has had the longest Discord call. There's really no proof of this. But if you were to check Reddit threads out, you'd see that there have been a bunch of users that have been on call for days straight.

As I said, my friend was on a server call for almost a day once. At the end of the day, there's no limit to how long Discord voice calls can last. So in theory, you and the person you're talking to can keep going for weeks, or even months on end.

Although there is no restriction to how long Discord calls can last, you can't keep your call going when you go to sleep or are away from home. Discord will automatically disconnect you when you've stopped interacting with them - this is 3 minutes for the Discord mobile app.

Can You Be on More Than One Discord Call?

No, you can't be on multiple calls at the same time. Discord hasn't disclosed why, but if I had to guess, I would say that it's due to technical reasons: you'd overload their system if you had multiple voice connections running.

But ask yourself, if being on more than one call would be practical. There's no way you would be able to focus - you'd have to deal with multiple users talking at the same time.

Can People See if You're in a Voice Call on Discord?

If you're talking about a private call with you and some friends, no one will be able to see what you're doing. But if it's a call on a server's voice channel, then everyone on the server will be able to see what you're up to.

Whenever someone opens the server and scrolls down, they'll see you in the voice channel you're in. This is even true for invisible users if they're lurking on a channel.

However, this doesn't always mean that other users can join you. You can lock a channel by changing its permissions.

Of course, to change these permissions, the server's Discord admins would have to help you. They probably won't do this without asking the server owner for his permission, though.

How Many Users Can Join a Discord Call?

When it comes to private calls with someone from your Dms, you can add other people to it, but this automatically will make your private chat a group chat. You can keep adding people to your call until you get to 10 users in total in your chat.

On server voice channels, the answer depends. If it's a regular call, the limit's set at 100. As mentioned, there is no time restriction, so all 100 of you can keep going for as long as you want.

But when it comes to video calls, you can only have 25 users join you.

Answered below are some popular questions.

1. How Can You Join a Discord Call?

The answer depends on what type of call you mean.

Here's how you can join a group call:

Here's how you can have a call on Private Chats:

Here's how you can voice chat on a mutual servers channel:

It's a similar process to do all of 3 the above on both the Discord desktop app and the Discord mobile application.

2. Are Discord Voice Calls Free?

Yes, Discord voice calls are free. However, they can eat up your bandwidth, especially if you've switched to a video call.

For an hour, Discord voice calls generally take around 10-20 Mbs, while video calls on the platform can take up to 200-350 Mbs an hour.

3. What is the Longest Facetime Call?

According to the Guinness World Records, the longest Facetime call goes to Cisco Systems. They hold this Guinness world record because they had a call run for almost 89 hours. This happened all the way back in 2015, and it's still not beaten today.

Final Thoughts

There is no definite answer as to who had the longest Discord call (this includes private, group, and server channel calls). But several users on Reddit have had really long calls, and have gone for days straight. Generally speaking, most Discord users stay in there for an hour or two max, though.

At the end of the day, the platform doesn't have any restrictions on how long you can be on a call with someone. However, they do kick out any user if they're alone in a channel, and the Discord auto idle feature kicks in.

To make things more useful, I even went through additional information on the topic, like whether you can join multiple voice calls from your Discord account, and whether Discord voice calls are free.
