Discord stores a lot of stuff like pictures, videos, and funny GIFs on your computer or mobile, which takes up space. But don't worry, you can easily get rid of these files on Windows 10, Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Android devices.

Just remember, these steps are for when you have the Discord app installed on your computer or mobile. If you're using Discord on a web browser, you'll have to clear your browser's storage instead.

Similar to how Discord on Windows PCs and Macs stores some files like images and videos, the Android version of the Discord app also keeps these files as cache files.

You can remove these files by clearing Discord's cache through the Android settings menu. The steps may differ based on your device and the version of Android you have. Here's an example from a Google Pixel running Android 13:

1. Swipe down once (or twice) from the top of your screen.

2. Tap the Gear icon to open your device's "Settings" menu.

3. Now, select "Apps."

2. Scroll down and tap on "General."

3. Look for "iPhone (or iPad) Storage" and tap on it.
