Discord is fairly feature-rich as a communication platform, but if you need your server to do much more you could look at installing a bot. It's super-easy to do and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some allow you to play music, while others create a virtual currency for users to collect and spend on cool stuff.
How to add bots to your Discord server
In order to add a bot to a Discord server, you need to have a role with sufficient permissions to manage a server. If you're the owner, that's great! Here's how to install a bot on a Discord server:
- Go to the unofficial Discord bots repository.
- Choose a bot you like the look of and click Add to server.
Log into your Discord account on the official website.
- Choose the server from the drop-down menu.
- Hit "Continue".
And you're done! All you need to do is go onto your favorite Discord client, connect to your server and interact with the bot. This is achieved using commands, which vary from bot to bot, so be sure to check out the instructions so you don't get lost.
