What Features Can You Access?

In my experience, I was able to access almost all the things that I normally do while on Discord. However, it’s not as efficient as navigating Discord on your smartphone or desktop. It definitely takes some getting used to it but after you get the hang of it, I can say it is usable. Below are some of the things that I was able to access using Discord on my Galaxy Watch.

Servers & Media

I was able to access all the servers along with all their content including videos and other media files as well.

By accessing group chats and friend lists, I was easily able to engage in conversations. I was able to engage in individual conversations, through texts, make calls to my friends, and receive incoming voice calls.

Video Calls

I effectively made and attended video calls on Discord from my Galaxy Watch, but as smartwatches don’t have cameras, the other person was only able to get audio from my end.

How To Customize DPI?

Since the Discord app is not optimized for Wear OS, there are some issues or functions that you might not be able to access properly. You could also face some trouble while navigating the interface. But don’t worry, you also have an option to customize the DPI of your Watch so you can get a better view of the screen layout. Follow the below-mentioned steps to change the DPI of your Galaxy Watch.

Note: By changing the DPI of your Galaxy Watch, the contents of the display will get smaller, so if you have poor eyesight, it might not be suitable for you. However, you can easily reverse it and change the contents of the display back to their original size.

1. Open the Bugjaeger app and connect your Galaxy Watch through it for Wireless debugging.

2. Go to the Commands section and tap on the code <> icon.

Select Command

This will change the DPI of your Galaxy Watch screen and make the contents smaller so that they fit on the watch screen.

Tom's love for watches started when his grandfather gifted him his Rolex watch when he turned 18! Being a teenager it was a big deal for him. Later when he got his first job he bought Fossil Palm Pilot back in 2003 which was a smartwatch. Since then smartwatches have come a long way and so is Tom's love for them. His experience with watches inspired him to start Wearholic and share his knowledge of wearables including watches, smartwatches, smart glasses, & smart clothing.
