You possibly can change up the look of the chat app, however provided that you pay for it.

Discord is testing out themes that let you change the app’s UI, providing you with the selection of 16 (or maybe 17?) premade coloration schemes. It’s a long-awaited function for the app, however the catch is that you need to pay for Discord’s $9.99 month-to-month Nitro subscription to entry it — themes aren’t included within the $2.99 month-to-month Nitro Primary plan, in line with the company’s feature comparison chart.

Nitro has a lot of useful perks for individuals who spend plenty of time in Discord, comparable to the power to add bigger information, ship longer messages, and customise your profile, however I’d argue that you just don’t must be an influence person to understand aesthetic modifications. It’s straightforward to think about individuals wanting themes however not having the ability to justify such a excessive price ticket for an app that they simply use casually.

Discord does allow you to preview the themes to see what you might make the app seem like when you have been a subscriber. (You possibly can entry the preview pane by going to Settings > Look, then clicking the “Preview Theme” button.) In my view, there’s a pleasant mixture of pastel-colored mild themes and funky / moody darkish themes — there’s even a “blurple” one that nearly feels like a Verge theme.

For individuals who don’t wish to pay for Nitro, there are nonetheless methods to theme Discord. The BetterDiscord project has been working to boost the app for some time now, and the listing of enhancements features a theming engine. And whereas it allows you to create really customized themes slightly than providing you with a bunch of premade ones to select from, it’s admittedly not fairly as user-friendly because the Nitro model.
