Communicating with friends

When it comes to communicating with friends, firstly you need to find them on the discord app. Much like the social media apps out there, discord uses also require the user to be friends with someone on the app to chat.

This is done by searching for the user tag of the friend you want to add. If you already know the user tag of your friend then well and good. Otherwise, feel free to ask them for it.

Once you know their ID tag, you can search them up on the app. This can be done by selecting the icon resembling two heads on the menu bar.

The option to add a friend will appear in the middle of the screen. Select that and enter the username of your friend. Once you have found the username you can select it and send a friend request to their ID. The sent request is to be accepted by your friend to establish communication over discord.

Now you can easily chat with them privately. You can also add more of your friends onto a group chat with the addition icon on the top right corner of the chat screen.

Servers – creating and joining

Servers can be easily created with a similar process. Select the menu first. There will be a  “+” symbol on the left-hand side of the menu panel. Select that to go on to create a server.

Select create yours on the page that appears and move on to choosing the kind – club/community or me and my friends. After selecting the choice, enter a name for the server and build it. You can add the topic for your server next and then move on to using it.

For joining a server select, join a server instead of Create. Here, the invite link can be pasted and the user can join in. Discord members can be also bought to increase the member count on the server.

Channels – creating and joining

Much like creating a server the creation of a channel is done by clicking the “+” sign on the menu. You can type in the channel name and type and create it.
