Discord Web: how to use it in your browser

Discord Web

If you want to know how you can use Discord Web in your browser, you have come to the right place, because we are going to see it right now.

Discord has more than 170 million monthly users, which makes it one of the most famous and used communication platforms on the web.

There are several versions of Discord today, including Discord Web, the one available through the web browser and the one at hand today, as well as its version for mobile devices.

Using Discord on the web is simple and only requires a few steps, in addition to being able to run in a browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, among others.

In addition, we can also use it on a Windows computer, on a Mac, and even on devices that have Android or iOS, which shows that it is the most versatile version of all.

How to use Discord on your computer, step by step:

  • How to enter Discord Web
  • Discord Web vs. desktop discord

How to enter Discord Web

Discord works with almost all desktop web browsers, although according to its developers, the one that will give us the best experience is Chrome, it can also be used with Firefox or Opera.

To access and use the web version of Discord, the first thing we need to do is go to Discord.com/login and start working from there. The steps are extremely simple:

  • We enter our email or phone number and password in the corresponding fields.
  • Then we click on Login .

At this point, you will realize that the interface is not different from the downloadable version for the computer, although this has nuances as we will see later.

If you did not have a Discord account, all it will ask you for is an email or phone number, a username, a password, and your date of birth.

Once everything is covered, it will ask you to verify your email with a message that they will send you and it would be ready for you to enter Discord Web.

Discord Web vs. desktop discord

Although the interface is extremely similar as we said before, there are several notable differences between what are the Discord Web version and Discord for desktop.

The browser version of Discord requires fewer system resources than the Discord app. It easily runs in almost all browsers, although, according to the experience of millions of users, it is in Google Chrome that it works best and performs best, above other browsers such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge.

The disadvantage of consuming fewer resources is that the Discord Web version has certain shortcomings in some functions that do appear in the desktop version.

The Discord app will show what game you are currently playing to all your friends, but the browser version is not capable of it. In any case, if we think about it coldly this can become an advantage if we do not want the friends with whom we chat to see what game we are in so that no one can join.

Using Discord on the web is easy and requires only a few steps, as well as being able to run in a browser such as

We explain ourselves. Many gamers nowadays use mechanical keyboards due to their higher responsiveness and better touch feel, but the problem with these keyboards is that they are quite noisy. Therefore, to avoid flooding the voice channel with the sound of users typing, Discord has a push-to-talk feature.

Unfortunately, this only works on the web version if the window is active. This means that the only way to be able to talk while we are playing on the computer is to use the desktop version.

If we go to Discord Web > User Settings > Voice and video, we will see how accessing the word Limited will appear next to the option in parentheses.

Selecting when we talk will have a warning that will tell you that push to talk is only active when the window is in focus.

It is not that there are many differences with the desktop version, but it is true that what we have shown you can be definitive for some users.

Using Discord on the web is easy and requires only a few steps, plus it can run in a browser like Chrome.
