How to Add a Music Bot to Discord

The first step is finding a Discord music bot you’d like to start with. There are hundreds or even thousands available, along with descriptions and reviews on sites such as Discord Bot List.

However, for today’s demonstration, we’ll be using our obvious, personal favorite, Vexera!

One of the first things you’ll need to do is access the Manage server permission, which is only available if you’re the server’s trusted user or administrator.

  1. Open the Discord app and log in
  2. Open a web browser and visit your Discord music bot website
  3. Browse the website until you see an “Add to Discord” button
  4. Select the server you’d like your Discord music bot in
  5. Click Continue
  6. Click Authorize

You may need to complete a Google captcha for the authorization process.

And there you go, Vexera is setup!

You’ll want to read up on the things you can do with your new Discord music bot, but the basic command for Vexera is +play

Simply visit a voice channel, and type “+play song name” and Vexera will start playing, it’s that easy! You can also control your music queue via the web panel as well.
