Discord.js setGame() not working anymore


I have been coding my Discord bot using Discord.JS for about 2 months now and I’ve just recently noticed that my bot isn’t saying that it’s playing what I’m telling it. When I first coded the bot up until recently it worked just fine. Now the 3 discord bots I have aren’t showing their games.

This is the code I’m using:

const Discord = require("discord.js");
const bot = new Discord.Client();
bot.on("ready", () => {
  bot.user.setGame("Type !help");


.setGame() is deprecated now but you could use .setPresence() or you could use the .setActivity() which is the same thing and format as the .setGame().

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const bot = new Discord.Client();
bot.user.setActivity('YouTube', { type: 'WATCHING' });

Here is a link to the documentation in case you wanted to change 'Watching' to something else like 'Playing'.
