If you’ve come here wanting to learn how to add bots to Discord you won’t be disappointed. Discord is currently the most popular chat service designed specifically for gamers and comes with all the features you’d expect from an app like this. You can voice chat, text chat, send media content and much more. The voice quality is second to none and the client also shows which game you’re currently playing in a manner that’s similar to that of Steam. More recently, the folks over at Discord also opened a marketplace where you can buy games at very reasonable prices. So what’s not to love?
All those features are nice to have if you’re a gamer but there is an additional one that allows this app to really stand out. Discord allows gamers to create their own servers and customize them in a number of ways. Among other things, you can add bots to your server that can perform various tasks. For example, you can add security bots, news bots, and more. These bots can not only help you manage your server more easily but they can also add fun new features as well. Bots are particularly helpful if you’re running a larger server with lots of people as it can become difficult to manage everything by yourself after a while.
How to Add Bots to Discord
Adding bots to your Discord server is a fairly straightforward affair and we can show you how to do it in just four easy steps. Before you do anything else, however, you’ll first need to log into your Discord account and create a new channel. Or just use an existing channel if you already have one.
Click on the little arrow next to the name of your server and then click on ‘Server Settings.’ Now click ‘Roles’ and use the little ‘+’ button to add a new role (or edit an existing one) that has the necessary permissions to add bots. More specifically, you’ll want to make sure the ‘Manage Server’ option is enabled for this role.
Bots can be found on a variety of different websites, such as Carbonitex and DiscordBots. Browse around until you find one you like and then click the button labeled ‘Add Bot to Server.’ Or just ‘Add to Server,’ depending on which website you’re using.
A new window will open that asks you to select the server you want to add the bot to. Simply select a server from the list and proceed to the final step.
Give the bot any of the listed permissions you want by ticking the boxes next to each option. Finally, click the Authorize button to add the bot to your server.
Hopefully, after reading our little guide you’ll never have to worry about adding bots to Discord server ever again. Remember to visit the aforementioned sites often because new bots are added all the time. If you can’t find the bot you want, it’s worth noting that there are other sites that also host them. There’s a bot for pretty much everything out there. Keep looking and you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for sooner or later.
