Discord's 'About Me' section was launched back in 2021, but not all users are familiar with this feature, which allows users to write about their interests.

When did Discord introduce the About me section?

As part of its effort to allow users to personalize their profiles further, Discord has introduced a section called About Me. The feature was announced on the 24th of June, 2021.

Some Discord users are still unaware that they can add a personal touch to their servers through the ‘About Me’ section, even though the feature has been available worldwide for a year now.

The ‘About Me’ section is available for both free and paid users, however, paid users a.k.a Nitro members have a few additional options. Nitro members can upload an image or animated gif as their profile banner for $9.99. Supported file types are PNG, JPG, and animated GIFs under 10MB. The recommended minimum size is 600x240.

Furthermore, free Discord users can add a cool Discord bio that contains a maximum of 190 characters, links, and Unicode.
