Discord is so popular among gamers as it offers so many features that other messengers or apps failed to offer in terms of gaming. Even though discord provides a lot of options and features, it also allows the users to add bots to their server including music bots.
Bots let the user customize
their server with their own likings. But choosing the right bot to suit your
needs is a little tricky task to complete because there are a lot of categories
of bots to integrate with the server.
Over time, playing music on discord is getting popular among gamers. Even discord itself allows the user to connect with Spotify and play the music directly from it. Besides it, there are a lot of bots to play the music, but only some get the job done perfectly.
Here are the best music bots for discord to play music on the server. But before that, learn how to add bots to your server. If you’re familiar with adding the bots, then you can skip this section.

2. Then click Create a Server
3. Provide your server a name and an image
(supports up to 128×128) and click Create.
4. In the next window, you
will be asked to invite your friends to join your server. Close the dialog box
if you don’t want to.
5. Your server is now created and should appear in the left toolbar. Now go the desired bot page and click Add to discord or Invite (Every bot should have a dedicated page and offer an option to add it to discord)
6. Then the discord will show you the information that the bot can access. Under Add Bot To option, select the server you have created and click Continue and click Authorize on the next page (Complete the captcha if asked)
If you haven’t logged in to discord on the browser, it will be redirected to the login page. Enter your credentials and your good to go.
