Discord is a great app for communicating with your friends and random strangers who share the same interests as you. However, it’s quite boring in terms of UI and lacks good customization options. This can be fixed by using an app called BetterDiscord. It is quite similar to the original but has many customization options and a better UI. With this, users can download better Discord themes and plugins.
This is a must-have for any user, especially with the additional themes and plugins. All of this is possible due to users being able to download multiple themes and plugins for the app, which isn’t possible in the normal version.
1. Go to the homepage and download the latest version of the application.
2. Run the setup and accept the license agreement.
3. Press Install BetterDiscord.
4. Choose the directory where your original app is installed.
5. Both apps are now linked to each other. However, you might need to restart your PC after installation. Also, check out our article on discord message formatting tips here!
