If you want to install and use the Discord app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Discord in the search bar and press Search. Click on Discord application icon. A window of Discord on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes
Download Android

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Dear, Discord.

    By Ghara.
    Discord is a great tool for gaming, streaming, and almost anything you need out of a communication service/application. Yet it is lacking sometimes there is server lag or buggy happening on pc and the phone version usually just the phone version but its come along way and most of the bad issues are completely fixed. I just wish it was more compatible with certain devices, for example i don't have a great pc but it is good enough to play arma 2 - 3 with 60 frames yet discord likes to kill my cpu time usually freezes and such as well, despite playing with the prioity setting it higher or lower doesn't fix the problem. Ios version seems fine most of the time but sometimes has server lag or disconnects. But all in all its one of the best alternatives to paid communication services for gaming and streaming, and i am if it wasn't free it would be the best of paid applications, its simple you can create free servers and manage those servers with ease. btw in your update log you wrote "with relative easy" instead of relative ease. The best part i would say is how easy and how quickly you can create and connect with people so you can just get into your game and start playing. Thank you discord! i hope you continue to improve and fix this application, its been a few years since i have even looked at teamspeak and its all thanks to you guys|~<3
  • Keeps crashing and marking unread messages as read.

    By Gorogokvi
    I like Discord for what it offers, but the iOS app crashes randomly whenever I try to load a picture, gif, song, or other upload someone else posted, and crashes when I try to post pictures quite frequently. I know that a lot of people upload stuff, so the fact that it crashes as often as it does is a major concern for me. Another issue is that the app has decided to randomly mark all messages in random chat channels as read when I open them, even though I’ve still got dozens to read before I reach the end of the string. Or I’ll be reading the messages, and suddenly it marked all messages as read, to include ones that happen while I’m reading, and not even remotely caught up. It happens randomly, so I don’t even know what might be the issue. It might happen to a chat every time I open it, or just once in a while but it’s a bug I want to see gone. Being tagged in a message, and then having that indicator removed randomly is an issue. I don’t always have time to read everything in one sitting, so I want to be assured that I can read it later. It is a major issue when it starts you over at the end of the conversation, and doesn’t save from where you had to leave off. (This is mostly for my admin duties on servers.) I like that I have the ability to take Discord with me, but if I can’t use it half the time, then it’s like I don’t even have it at all.

    From the very beginning, I have had numerous problems with this app. The only reason I am giving it two stars is because when it does work, it is phenomenal. When I first got the app, it wouldn’t let me join the server I wanted to and said I was banned (even though I’d never used the app before). I re-downloaded the app recently because I was joining a clan and they required discord. I got the app and I was still logged into my old account, which was glitched, so I created a new one. I actually had to create that account on my browser because the app didn’t even let me do that. I created my account and tried to login on the app, no success. I’ve re-downloaded the app numerous times since then and still, no success logging in. Luckily, my browser still works and I use that to chat with my clan. Unfortunately, even when I turn my phone sideways, I can’t see all of the writing because it shows all the members of the group on the right hand side and it takes up half of the screen. Then, I have to read downwards one letter at a time and I don’t have the patience for that, especially with all of the scrolling it requires. If I could get on the app and not have to worry about that, I would have no complaints, but this simple fix is ruining the entire app for me. If you want people to use your app, they have to be able to create an account, but so far I haven’t had any luck with that.
  • Simply the best

    By Everett James
    I started to use discord around a year ago, with that said I use it for everything, I own a few gaming teams and it is so nice to communicate with other team members, other teams, etc etc, I also use discord to communicate with friends, teammates ( especially in games where a mic is not supported ) discord does not affect my frames which is something I enjoy, I can still play my favorite games with discord open without sacrificing graphics or frame, I also have a few servers which I moderate and using bot support I can easily put up chat filters to prevent people from using certain words that may be deemed inappropriate, setting discord up was surprisingly easy and I had no trouble what so ever, I have never been let down by discord either, there servers have never been down allowing me to always communicate the quality is purely amazing, for any game devs out there I would use this as this app allowed my favorite developers to host polls, show updates, and even do giveaways, simply put this is the best way of communication for any devs, gamers, or fans, and even friends and would highly suggest that you get this app

  • The Issue w/ Callkit Integration

    Discord is an app I moved to from Skype, and by far it is one of the best choices I’ve made. The sound quality is superior, it’s more easily navigable and the overall performance is better. The most recent update, however, has given me reason to become unhappy with this service. Callkit integration is a feature that most, if not all, major calling services provide, which made Discord conveniently unique. To get to the point, here are the issues that arise with callkit integration: - Battery life reduced significantly - Generally bothersome on lockscreen (and, quite frankly, I’d prefer the privacy of not having my weird groupchat names showing on my lockscreen) - Locking screen now unavailable w/o hanging up call - Causes extreme heat on phone - Music difficult to play - Clutters call log - Phone calls hang up Discord call Upon many other disadvantages, the point is that callkit integration overall is a burden on many of Discord’s users. If taken into consideration, I look forward to seeing what the Discord service has to offer in the (hopefully) near future.

  • A little weird but I like it

    By Loretta. R
    Sometimes I find it hard to see what group chat has a new message and how to find people on here, also how to friend them. I’m new so there will be a learning curve like all things but this learning curve seemed a little bigger. Over all though I love the app cause I can talk to my friends with very little interruption of computer problems! Thank you!
  • Discord please REMOVE the recent update!!!

    By WolfLover17
    Dear Discord, I have used this app for many years and this update is making me reconsider not using it anymore. Why? Because of the stupid way a discord call acts like an actual phone call now! I absolutely hate it and it serves no purpose on mobile. Change it back please now!!! Whenever I get a call on discord it now interrupts me whenever I’m doing something on my phone, and it’s so dumb. ESPECIALLY when I tap the check mark and then I can’t even hear the other person and they can’t hear me. It literally serves no purpose!!!! I also leave discord on in the background and then it let my phone turn off and know what the dumb thing does? No longer has it on in the background and stupid call is always saying “Discord Audio Connecting” all the time. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX THIS it does the same thing on my ipad and I despise it. If this isn’t fixed I’ll find a new app to message on, and discord will lose a good supporter :/ Thank you for reading this, and I hope you address it swiftly. Once this issue is fixed I will change it to 5 stars.
  • Roles

    By URMCpro
    Any chance the ability to edit roles is coming to mobile? It’s annoying when you’re away and need to add a role to someone but can’t. Or remove a role.

  • Bug

    By JustCrazyAF
    I’d love to give discord a five star but, discord doesn’t properly work on IPad. When I try to send messages it doesnt send when I hit the send button, which causes spam. I can’t access server/icons without lagging.
