Not so long ago, we featured YouTube user ThisIsntNath2‘s video on the best Discord bots. Today, we are featuring his other informative Discord video, on what the best Discord music bot is! Check out the short video below, and then read our summary below to find some more detail about Nath’s favorite music bots.
Both of these Discord music bots work in a similar way. They work with server commands in a text channel, then play music in a corresponding voice channel. It basically functions as a user that joins the voice channel, but is always talking. Both are very easy to integrate. The website for both bots have a button to add it to your Discord server. Just select the server and confirm permissions, and then you’re good to go! You and your friends will be jamming out together in no time!
Discord Music Bot: FredBoat
FredBoat is capable of playing music from YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, direct links, Twitch, and more. You can even search for a track with FredBoat if you don’t have a URL handy. Adding music to a playlist is easy as well, allowing users to set up the bot with music and let it entertain the whole server. This one is Nath’s favorite music bot, mostly because it is extremely easy to use and has very little lag.
Discord Music Bot: DabBot
DabBot is pretty similar to FredBoat. It works much the same, but Nath does note that he finds there is a bit of lag compared to FredBoat, making it only his second favorite. The thing that pushed DabBot over the edge is its ability to play radio stations. A command brings up a list of available stations, and then you can choose to start playing one of them. It also is capable of playing from YouTube, SoundCloud, Twitch, direct link, and many more.
That’s really all there is to say on that! These music bots are incredibly simple to add to your server and to use once they are there. Hopefully Nath’s advice helps you decide which bot is best and how to use them.
