Rythm is a popular music-playing bot that helps you listen to music with your Discord community. It supports YouTube, YouTube Music, SoundCloud, Twitch, and other music streaming services to play on the Discord. But how to use Rythm bot on Discord?

Today, we will discuss how to add Rythm to your server, use it, features that you need to check out, and also how to remove it if you are not happy. In short, everything you need to know about the Rythm bot on Discord.

How to Add Rythm Bot to Your Discord Server

To add the Rythm bot to Discord server, open the Rythm official website. You can find the “Add to Discord” as the first option in the right sidebar, click on it.

You will be asked to sign in to Discord if not already.

This will open a discord page to add the bot to your server. Just select Server in the drop-down menu and click on Continue. If the server you wanted to add the bot to is unavailable, you probably don’t have the necessary permissions to add bots to that specific server. You should contact someone with an admin or higher role to add the bot for you.

How to Use Rythm Bot

The prefix of Rythm bot is “!”. With it, you can use a number of commands such as play, pause, resume, shuffle, queue, etc.

You can use the command “!Play” and then type the name of a song or YouTube URL to start playing it and everyone in that group can listen to the same.

Make sure that people are not spamming Rythm commands on all your channels leading to spam. To do so, create a separate music control text channel by clicking on the plus “+” sign beside text channels.

How to Remove the Rythm Bot from Server

Often times people add bots to test them out and then want to remove them for various reasons. But removing bots from the Discord server is a weird process.

To remove, just type !play in the channel where Rythm can read. It will reply with a message saying it’s invalid.

You can also do the same from the “Members List”, but if you have a lot of people on the server, it hard to find the bot as there is no search feature.

Will You Use Rhytm Bot on Discord Server

Though Rythm doesn’t support Spotify, it always has been my favorite music bot on Discord due to its reliability. The fact that it doesn’t lag in between and responds to every command is really good compared to other music bots. But I recommend you to check out Groovy and Botify as they are the best alternatives you can choose.
