Discord app 'Return' or 'Enter' key does not send message on iPad or iPhone acknowledged, fix in the works

Discord is a free instant messaging service with many options for creating communities. It has features such as servers, channels (chat and voice separately), bots and more.

You can use Discord either through a web browser or through the Discord app (for desktop, Android and iOS).

Like the Discord desktop app, the app for smartphones and tablets support external physical keyboards. However, some users on iPhone and iPad have been facing issues for a few weeks now.

Discord app ‘Return’ or ‘Enter’ key does not send message on iPhone and iPad

Normally, in Discord app for iPhone and iPad, you could send a message by just pressing the ‘Return’ or ‘Enter’ key (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

But now when you press the ‘Return’ or ‘Enter’ key in the Discord app, the message is not sent. Instead, a blank space is entered.

Hi. i am having two issues since I recently updated my iPad Pro from iPadOS 14.4.2 to iPadOS 15.3 related to the Discord app.

First of all, apparently the enter physical button no longer sends the message in Discord. For years I’ve been typing and sending the messages just hitting the physical enter button, but now it just makes a line jump (WTF). Is it just me?

Bring back enter sends message as toggle on iOS / iPadOS

I use a physical keyboard on my iPad, including on Discord. After the last update, the option to have messages send when enter is pressed was removed. I confirmed that this is not a bug with the help staff, this is an intentional feature of the latest update (Feb 15, 2022).

It’s worth pointing out that the issue only happens in the iPad and iOS app, since the web version of Discord and the Android app work correctly.


Although most of the reports come from iPad users, this is because it is more common to use a physical keyboard on Apple tablets than on iPhones, but the issue is also present in the iOS app.

Discord team is already aware, affected versions

The glitch in question started as soon as update 113.0 of the Discord app for iOS and iPad OS arrived, according to reports:


But, even after the Discord app 115 update, the issue is still present:


The Discord team is already aware of the glitch where the ‘Return’ or ‘Enter’ key does not send a message on iPad or iPhone app. However, there is no ETA yet for a fix.
