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

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Pretty Good

    By Ley0301
    All in all, it's a great app. In fact, I'd say it's nearly perfect on PC. However, there are some features on PC that you can just not access on mobile. For example, you can't change privacy settings to turn off DMs on a certain server, which can be a struggle for people with, uh, fans. Another thing is that you can't change somebody's role on mobile, which is very aggravating. I'm a moderator on a server and we have a specific role to give to misbehaving people which prevents them from sending messages. But, I can only do my job as moderator if I'm on my PC, because mobile won't let me change roles. In addition, for whatever reason, certain pictures refuse to upload, and it’s not the channel settings because it’s only with certain pictures (only on mobile). The last thing I recommend, which is currently neither on mobile or PC, is having some version of read receipts for DMs. I know that's probably gonna be controversial, but I personally know that some of my friends are big YouTubers, so they get caught up, and forget. However, if I was able to tell if they'd read my message, I'd be able to yell at — er, uh, talk to them about it.

  • Speakerphone

    By Kyakumaru
    I’ve been using this app for quite a while, but recently, I’ve gotten a call from a friend of mine, but I couldn’t switch off speakerphone. I’m really hoping that it’s just something I missed, because I’ve already checked the options.
  • PARENTS AND USERS READ THIS + Ban galore and “Customer” service

    By PhantomStReviews
    So parents, I advice you that to keep a close eye on your kid and mess with the settings to make sure they never access NSFW servers. Why? Its obvious they never know what they’re getting into. Except on DIScord, everyone gets punished for a “innocent” child's actions. Everyone gets banned if at least one of these buggers gets into these. Same goes for DIScord, upgrade your servers and settings so where that when you enter your age on any device, it is set in stone when you download the app. Users: Be sure to not share invite links unless you know FULL WELL you are not talking to a toddler (turn on sarcasm). Its also aggravating that with big companies like DIScord, is that the customer is never right. My boyfriend got banned for unauthorized charges that he never made. Kinda sounds backwards right? Gets banned for absolutely “using” a card he never remembers touching. So he gives a ticket to the company. They never responded, so I took the liberty to talk on Twitter, got little to no help from them. After seeing all the damage done, I would personally give them a negative score of possible. I used to love this app until hearing if a kid breaches the server and wrecks it all up.
  • Great!!!

    By SonicKnght774
    Pretty cool premise. I enjoy using this app mainly for communication. Friendly UI, functional, and well built. Also, it's great how I can switch from my phone to my computer easily. They even have a working version for my ancient iPhone 4. Totally recommend

  • Discord is hot as heck

    By Mlg doge 999999969
    Discord is a great messaging service for anyone. Developers, G a m e r s, and anything else you can think of, the possibilities do have an end but it’s a pretty high amount of possibilities 👌. Discord images deleted or not no matter what server is selected appear in your Discord cache though. Might want to clear it every once in a while. Discord has screen sharing, video calls and the ability to stream a single page or game in decent quality with good FPS depending on your computer. The amount of servers you can join at once is pretty endless, maybe I don’t know. This can allow to connect with a lot of communities at once and connect with others on your favorite subjects. Besides a few incidents with the Trust and safety team and the ToS. Besides that, Discord is a pretty spicy app. Yee
