Discord is a VoIP program that has consistently stood its ground against competing apps such as TeamSpeak, Skype, Zoom, and many others. One of the reasons for Discord’s enduring popularity is the ability to add bots to a server.
Bots are useful because they can introduce numerous extra features to a server. For example, a bot can play music, give server introductions, list rules, make announcements, and various other functions that help your server run more smoothly.
If you want to add these features to your server, all you need to do is choose an appropriate bot and add it.
If you have been wondering how to get bots on Discord, this quick guide will help you!

Pick The Bot
Your first task is to choose which bot or bots you want to add to your server. There are many bot list websites that will help you find a bot that fulfills your requirements.
Alternatively, you could join the Discord Bots server, which lists many of the available bots. The server will also help you discover which bots are recommended by other Discord users.
Once you have chosen a bot for your server, it’s time to add it.
Add The Bot
As an example, we chose Rickbot to show you the necessary steps to add it to Discord. Follow these steps if you want to add Rickbot or any other bot to your server.
Most bots nowadays have their own website, so either search for its official website on Google or look for it on Discord bot ranking platforms such as top.gg.
Once you’ve found the official website, click Invite.
You will be redirected to a prompt to select the appropriate server. Once you’ve selected your server click Continue.
Additionally, you will be asked to customize the bot’s permissions.
If you have followed these steps, you should have successfully added Rickbot (or any other bot) to your server.
You can always refer back to this guide as the process of inviting/adding is quite similar for all bots. Once the bot is added, you can command it by using the specified prefix (usually starting with an exclamation mark).
