Rythm Discord Bot – How To Add It + Commands (2024)

Rythm Discord bot
Are you planning to start using the Rythm Discord Bot? We'll walk you through all you need to know.

In essence the Rythm bot allows you to pull music from popular streaming servers onto your Discord. Unfortunately, Rythm is no longer working so you might want to check out the alternative Hydra Discord bot.


Discord, the world's largest and most popular AI-powered Free-to-Use VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol, or the technology that converts your voice into a digital signal) server, allows users to get the best chat experience possible by using 'bots' (or robots) commands.

The Rythm discord bot, (i.e integrates with your Discord), is a dedicated music bot that can access and play songs from popular music streaming services such as YouTube and Apple Music. You can listen to, change, and search for any song on your mind from your Discord server with Rythm Discord bots.

The Rythm Discord bot can also play music, import, and export playlists, and queue up all of your favourite songs for when you're ready to listen to them.

All of these features are designed to make your life easier by automating boring or repetitive commands so you don't have to do them every time while still maintaining the best possible experience. They're usually free to use, but you can pay to get more features.

Once the Rhythm bot has been added to your server, you can join a voice channel and summon the bot using the !join command or the Rhytm dashboard at https://rythm.fm/app. Simply search for or !play the song or playlist you want to listen to from there.
