In this post, I’ll be showing a little about something called Discord and how to download & install better discord. Discord is pretty much a free voice and text chat for gamers if you haven’t heard about this it’s pretty much an awesome program. It’s a lot smoother and lots of gamers use it out there. It’s pretty much a great system that can use, pretty much to ditch Skype or TeamSpeak.
I just want to say that better discord is against discord’s TOS which means terms of service. You can get banned on discord if you are caught using it. So use this at your own risk.

When you go into the install tab you find different versions to choose from. It has three versions Discord, Discord PTB and Discord Canary. So you just have these three versions to pick from. Which one do you want to install? if you don’t know what these two are you most likely have this version so you can just select that one and then click install and it should install fine.
You can even install multiple versions at the same time. Then click install as you can see on your screen it will show you the full process. After installation, it should reboot your discord, and then it’ll open looking like a normal discord. But you will soon notice that there will be a public button which built into better discord. You’ll also notice that there’s a whole bunch of additional settings added in Discord.

First what you’re going to do is you’re going to go to better discord you’re going to right click on the downloaded CSS file and hit cut then go to roaming choose better discord, then go to plugins and paste it.
Let me demonstrate what this does; in discord, you will go to your plugins section and search PluginRepo. You’re going to notice that there’s a little tab which you can easily turn on and off.
Just turn on your plugin and now PluginRepo will show up in your discord. This is the easiest way to simply install plugins to discord. All you have to do is click download on any of the plugins under the PluginRepo section and then you go back to your plugins folder and you find it.
It allows you to download any plugins from BetterDiscord’s website within Discord.
