  1. Open your server settings on the desktop version of Discord and click on “Application Directory”.
  2. Find the app you want, then hit “Add to Server.”
  3. Give the app the permissions it needs by clicking “Authorize.”
  4. Start using your app by typing / (forward slash) in any text channel.

By adding apps to your Discord server, you can automate server administration tasks and add new functionality to your server. This makes your server a fun place to be and we’ll show you how to do it.

What is a discord app?

A Discord app is a third-party service that integrates with your server and allows you to perform special actions on the server. For example, you can add an app that greets each new member of the server, saving you the time you would otherwise spend manually greeting members.

To be clear, you do not install these Discord apps on your computer or smartphone. These apps are linked to your Discord server via an API (basically everything works online).

Where do you find the Discord apps?

Now that you know what Discord apps are, the next step is to know where to find these apps. After all, you need to find these applications in order to add them to your server later.

There are two locations where you can find these apps: the official Discord App Directory and third-party app websites. We strongly recommend that you install your apps from the official App Directory as you can trust those apps. However, if you don’t find a specific app you need there, you can get it from the app provider’s website or from an unofficial app directory; Just remember that Discord hasn’t vetted these apps, so you’re risking your server’s security by using them.

How to add an app to your Discord server

To link an app to your Discord server, you must have the Manage Server permission. If this is not the case, ask your server administrator to grant you the necessary permissions. If you are the administrator of the server, you already have the necessary permission.

With that out of the way, let’s see how to add apps from both the official App Directory and third-party sites to your Discord server.

From the Discord app directory

Launch Discord on your computer. You can use the web version of Discord or the desktop app for this procedure (you cannot use the mobile app for installation). Then, in the left sidebar of the app, select your server.

In the upper left corner of the server page, next to your server name, click the down arrow icon and choose “Application Directory”.


You will see the Discord “Application Directory” page. Here, find the app you want to add or select an app from the list. For the demo, we’ll be using the Midjourney Bot app (which uses AI to generate images on your server).

Choose a Discord app.

On the application page that opens, select “Add to server”.


You will see a prompt asking if you want to add the selected app to your Discord server. Choose “Continue”.


Review the app’s permissions list and choose “Authorize.”

Confirm the captcha and your app will now be added to your Discord server. Scroll down to the section below to learn how to use this app.

From a website

To add an application from a site, access that site in your preferred web browser on your desktop. There are several sites that host various Discord apps and we will be using the Top.gg site.

On the site, select the app to add. Then choose “Invite”. You are basically inviting the app to your server.


If you’re not signed in to Discord for the web, you’ll be prompted to do so. Then, review the app’s permissions, click the “Add to Server” dropdown, choose your server, and select “Continue.”

Select the server and choose

Review the app permissions and choose “Authorize”.


Confirm the captcha to finish adding your selected app to your Discord server.

How to get started with a Discord server app

Once you’ve added an app, you’ll want to learn how to use it on your Discord server. Doing this is easy as all you need to do is run the application commands on your server.

To do that, access your server and open a text channel. Type / (forward slash), select your app from the list, and you will see the commands you can use to activate this app.

Another way to find commands to start your application is to select your application in the right pane of your server. You’ll see your app overview panel, which outlines a few commands to help you get started with your app.

In our example, if we want to use the Midjourney Bot app, we will enter the following command. he /imagine part activates the app and the text that follows tells the app to draw a laughing man.

Use a Discord app.

Your application will display the output of your commands in the same text channel. And everything is ready.
