There are so many Discord servers active nowadays that almost anything you can think of has multiple active communities dedicated to the discussion and sharing on Discord.
This guide will go over how to join a Discord server, from a simple one for you and your friends to huge servers with thousands of members.
How to Use an Invite Link
The way you will join most servers is by being sent an invite link. An invite link is generated by sending an invite code to someone. This is the simplest way to join a server.
You must have an active Discord account to use an invite link to join a Discord server.
You might find an invite link posted in a Discord server you already belong to or sent as a direct message in Discord. Click the green button to join server.
You may also find invite links posted on a website such as Reddit or a streamer’s twitch page.
Clicking this link will automatically take you to the Discord server as well as add the server icon to your servers on the left sidebar.
Be mindful that there may be extra steps the server owner requires before you can become a full member.
How to Join Public Discord Servers
Discord has a built-in community hub where you can discover tons of public community servers. These public Discord servers are large communities designed to bring people with similar interests together.
Follow these steps to learn how to join a discord server listed in the community hub.
To access the community hub simply open Discord and click the compass icon (below the plus sign) in the left sidebar at the bottom of any servers you have already joined.
(This icon may be located in the top left corner rather than the bottom.)
There you will find a search bar. Type what you are looking for into the search bar to find a Discord server that you may find interesting.
Below you will see a list of featured communities to look through. Here you can find servers centered around your interests.
Clicking on a server will prompt you with a list of features offered by the Discord server.
Selecting “I’ll just look around for now” at the bottom will allow you to view the server to see if it is right for you.
These public servers are a great place to find information and groups connected to your interests.
