Discord is lastly including themes — for Nitro subscribers
Nitro has a whole lot of helpful perks for individuals who spend a whole lot of time in Discord, comparable to the power to add bigger recordsdata, ship longer messages, and customise your profile, however I’d argue that you just don’t should be an influence consumer to understand aesthetic adjustments. It’s straightforward to think about folks wanting themes however not having the ability to justify such a excessive price ticket for an app that they simply use casually.
Discord does allow you to preview the themes to see what you could possibly make the app appear to be when you have been a subscriber. (You possibly can entry the preview pane by going to Settings > Look, then clicking the “Preview Theme” button.) For my part, there’s a pleasant mixture of pastel-colored mild themes and funky / moody darkish themes — there’s even a “blurple” one that nearly looks like a Verge theme.
For individuals who don’t need to pay for Nitro, there are nonetheless methods to theme Discord. The BetterDiscord challenge has been working to reinforce the app for some time now, and the checklist of enhancements features a theming engine. And whereas it enables you to create really customized themes somewhat than providing you with a bunch of premade ones to select from, it’s admittedly not fairly as user-friendly because the Nitro model.
