Discord released a number of updates aimed at helping community servers create the best experiences for their members.

To start, moderators can now activate an AutoMod feature that automatically blocks messages containing inappropriate content.

Discord allows moderators to choose from three premade lists of “commonly flagged words” or create their own. Moderators can also decide the action(s) that will occur when a message containing flagged content is posted in the server, including blocking the message, sending an alert to the user who posted it or giving that user a temporary “timeout.”

AutoMod is available on PC and mobile devices.
