How Do I Play Music on Discord Server?


Scott Campbell

Are you looking to add some music to your Discord server? Playing music on Discord is a great way to keep your members entertained and engaged.

Fortunately, Discord offers several bots that allow you to easily play music in your server. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of adding a music bot to your Discord server and playing music for everyone to enjoy.

Step 1: Inviting a Music Bot

To play music on your Discord server, you need to invite a music bot. There are several popular music bots available, such as Rythm, Groovy, and FredBoat.

These bots offer similar features but may vary in terms of performance and additional functionalities. For this tutorial, we will use the Rythm bot as an example.

To invite the Rythm bot to your server:

  • Step 1: Open your web browser and go to the Rythm website.
  • Step 2: Click on the “Invite Rythm” button.
  • Step 3: Select the Discord server where you want to add the bot from the drop-down menu.
  • Step 4: Click on the “Authorize” button.

Step 2: Setting up Rythm

Once you have invited Rythm to your server, it’s time to set it up and configure its permissions.

To set up Rythm:

  1. Login into your Discord account if prompted.
  2. Select the server where you added the Rythm bot.
  3. Create a text channel dedicated to music commands (optional but recommended).
  4. Grant the Rythm bot necessary permissions to access voice channels and send messages.
  5. Move the Rythm role above other roles in the server’s role hierarchy (optional but recommended).

Step 3: Playing Music with Rythm

Now that you have set up Rythm, it’s time to start playing music on your Discord server!

To play music with Rythm:

  1. Step 1: Join a voice channel in your Discord server.
  2. Step 2: Type &play [song name or URL] in the text channel where you set up music commands.
  3. Step 3: Sit back, relax, and enjoy the music!

Rythm also offers several other commands to control playback, such as skipping songs (&skip) and pausing/resuming playback (&pause/&resume). You can explore these commands by typing &help.

Congratulations! You now know how to play music on your Discord server using the Rythm bot. Have fun and keep the rhythm going!
