Discord comes with a bunch of options to either automate or add functionality to its servers. One of these options is adding a bot.

Bots in Discord are exactly what you expect bots to be. They’re script disguised as people on a Discord server to get a particular task done. There are bots that can track stats, moderate servers and you guessed it, play music.

Music in voice channels has been quite a popular thing. These bots let users play and control music in their voice channels. There are a bunch of options to choose from as well. The most popular of these are Hydra, Rythm and Groovy.

Adding these bots to your server is pretty much identical. In this article, we’re going to take a look at how to add a music bot to your Discord servers using Rhythm bot.
