A Beginner's Guide to Cluborate's Discord

The first few times using Discord can be a daunting experience, but my goal today is to (hopefully) make things a little bit easier!

First of all, let’s cover the basics:

  1. LOG IN to your account:

The first step is to register for an account on the Discord webpage

  1. Now that you’ve registered, you should be signed in, but in case you ever sign out, here’s how you can log in again:

  2. If you’re on a browser (chrome, safari, firefox…etc.), go to the discord webpage and click on Open Discord in Your Browser

  3. If you have downloaded the app, simply open the app

  4. Next, you will see the ‘login page’. Here, type in your email address or phone number that is linked to your Discord account

  5. Finally, enter the password associated with your Discord account, and you’re in!

- To start chatting, simply join a server! You can choose to ask your friends for an invite link, OR join Cluborate’s server via

  1. When you enter, you will receive a ‘welcome’ message from a bot. After that, you are free to navigate the server. You will notice that there are two types of channels: text channels and voice channels.

  1. Text channels (#)

  2. Text channels are, essentially, a place for you to talk over text

  3. In Cluborate’s server, each text channel has a title so you’ll know what goes where

  4. Voice channels (🔊)

  5. Unlike text channels, voice channels lack…well, the texting feature

  6. Although you can still text in texting channels while you’re in a voice channel, everyone in the server still has access to the texting channel as well.

  7. Another thing to note is that there is no calling or ringing required; you simply click on a voice channel and you’re in! Anyone in the server can see when you’re in a voice channel.

  8. Here are some voice channel features:

  9. Mute/Unmute

  10. Camera on/off

  11. Deafen (prevents you from hearing others and mutes yourself)

  12. Share screen

  13. Remember to press DISCONNECT when you’ve finished chatting in a voice channel!

Next is the not-so-basic-but-still-useful basics:

  1. Number one is how to navigate settings:

  2. On a browser, the settings icon should be at the bottom left hand corner, beside your name.

- Connected to settings, we have listening to spotify together

  1. First connect your spotify account

  2. Head to User Settings by clicking the settings icon in the lower-left of Discord. Go to the Connections tab, and then click on the Spotify logo and connect your accounts.

  3. If you want to invite your friends to listen along, click the + in your chat bar!

  4. NOTE: to invite your friends to listen along, they will need Spotify Premium
