What is Discord

Discord App is an app for gamers with the help of which we can chat and make voice call or video call with our friends. You can understand it like WhatsApp, but here you have servers where thousands of people can join and send messages to each other there. Can send images, we can also do group video call and group voice call in it.

This app was first made for gamers who used to play video games with help of voice calls using this app, but nowadays it is also used for many different tasks.

It is very easy to use the Discord App, first of all, when you install and open discord, then there will be a blank app homepage, you first have to type your friend’s ID there and send them a friend request. After that you can chat with your friend, make video call to him and also send him images and videos.

If you want to create a group with many friends in Discord App, then you will have to create a server for that where you can add many people and all the people can chat together in that server and share images and videos and chat.

What are Discord Servers

Server in Discord App is your private group where you can add your friends by sending them an invite, if your friends click on the link of that invite then they can join that discord server. And after joining, your friends will come in that group and you can now chat with them in your server.

You can also create many different categories in your discord server. Like you can create a category only for images, you can create a category only for music, you can create a category for memes and you can create a server by creating many different categories like this. Categories are called channels in discord.

The person who created a discord server is the admin of this server and he can give admin to someone else or can give any other moderator role.

You can think of it like a WhatsApp group where you can add your friends and chat with them.

What are Roles

A Discord server has different roles that you can create yourself, such as if you create one ” Role A ” and another ” Role B ” then you can give different permissions to those roles that What he can and can’t do. For example, you can allow ” Role A ” to send images to your discord server and you can only allow ” Role B ” to chat.

Now if you give these roles to anyone like if you have given “Role A” to Adam and “Role B” to Viki, then Adam will be able to chat only in your discord server and send images but We have given “Role B” to Viki, so he will only be able to chat in your discord server and will not be able to send images.

And in the same way you can give different permissions to different people in your discord server what they can and cannot do by using roles in discord server.

What is Nitro in Discord

In any discord server, if you want to send an animated gif emote, then you need discord nitro, with the help of which you can send animated gif emote to your server or to any other server or friend. If you don’t have discord nitro then you can just send regular emotes which are not so special.

That’s why we use discord nitro, with the help of which you can use your own created emotes or emote of any different server in your server. With the help of discord nitro, some more features are also added to your discord account such as you can change the number of your username. You can use gif profile picture and discord nitro also increases your file upload limit.

What are Discord Bots

A bot in Discord is an artificial intelligence that is used to do different things in your discord server, such as if someone joins your discord server, then it welcomes them. Or you can also add a music bot to your server, which if you type the name of any song, then it will play that song for you and we use discord bot for different things like this. 

Bots are very important to manage a discord server because it is not so easy to manage a bigger server that has thousands of users, so people use bots which makes their life easier.
