There are many Discord bots (with some being popular, multi-purpose bots) that can help you do a birthday announcement on your server, but not all of them could do the job, as well as a dedicated birthday bot.
To help you find the best one for your community, we rounded up the top 3 birthday bots you can find on the internet: Birthday Bot, Birthday Bot (yes, those two are different), and Birthdayy. But if you can’t still decide which one to invite, we will recommend one we think is the best out of the three, so you can try testing it out on your server.
Ready? Let’s begin.
Top 3 Discord Birthday Bots
There are a number of Discord birthday bots available on GitHub and directories like top.gg. However, I recommend using any of these three: Birthday Bot, Birthday Bot (a different both with the same name), and Birthdayy.
What is A Discord Birthday Bot?
First off, if you’re not sure what a birthday bot is, let me explain it briefly.
Birthday bots are automated programs that send out greetings on a user’s birthday. Most bots of these types have varying features, but they all have these core functions:
- Allowing members to input their birthdays
- Recording the birthdays of server members on their database
- Making a birthday announcement
Some have more unique features, such as giving the admins the ability to create a more customized birthday message. This is a pretty cool way to let your members know that even though a bot sent it out, the birthday greeting still came from a real, living person–you.
Birthday Bot (1), Birthday Bot (2), Birthdayy: Which one is the best Discord server birthday bot?
Before we tell you what we think is the current best Discord server birthday bot, here are the three contenders for that spot with a summary of their features:
Birthday bot (1)
This Birthday Bot is probably the most popular out of the three on this list–and there’s a good reason. It’s easy to use, there are a lot of commands available, and it even has a support server you can join for troubleshooting Birthday Bot problems. Moreover, you can set up a customizable birthday role for your server.
Although it can be used for free, Birthday Bot Premium is also available which will give you a host of new features such as customizing birthday embed color, and all of the vote-locked functions are removed. Plus, you will be able to create multiple custom messages up to 500 in total.
Birthday bot (2)
Next on our list is also called Birthday Bot, but don’t let the similarities of their names fool you into thinking that it doesn’t have anything new to offer. It gives you the ability to set up other users’ birthdays, as long as you have the administrator’s permissions on that server.
It also has a premium version that allows you to set age and images for birthday announcements.
Last but not least is Birthdayy, a cute and easy-to-use birthday bot. Although it doesn’t have as many commands as the previous two on this list, it makes up for user-friendly design and beautiful aesthetics. It has a number of neat features, too, such as setting a special role for the day’s birthday celebrants, multiple announcements, and more.
To be honest, just choosing one best bot out of the three listed here isn’t too easy, especially since they each have their own advantages. But if we have to pick a birthday bot we could recommend to anyone whether they are new to Discord or a veteran, we’d have to say the first bot on the list, Birthday Bot (1).
Not only is it used by many large servers like PewDiePie’s Floor Gang, but it also has wide customization options, including the birthday blacklist feature. Other than that, setting up your birthday and time zone is also easy. An interactive map is available to serve as your guide in selecting your time zone.
The only downside, though, is a lot of cool perks, such as multiple custom messages being locked behind a paywall.
But, if having the minimum features is good enough for your server as of now, then Birthday Bot basic can already be a great addition to your community.
If you were to ask me, though, I’d say you can also test out the other two and see which one meets your server needs. All three bots are high up on our list, and we’d recommend trying any of them out.
