I am a gamer and an app like Discord is like heaven to me. It is perfect for me to connect with my gaming friends and other communities. It is quite straightforward to use and the best part about it is the interface. The platform was first only targeted at gamers but now different people across the globe use it. Discord is definitely a worthy platform where you can share files and messages with unique members or a community, which is referred to as a server.
There are several other things you can do to enhance your experience, like connecting Discord to YouTube and Spotify. The app allows you to share videos, images, internet links, music, and more. However, the size limit for a freemium account on Discord is 8MB. If you want to transfer files larger than this on channels, then you will have to get a Discord Nitro account. Today, we will be talking about how to share files on Discord, as it is not a straightforward process.
