Best Music Bots for Discord

There are numerous music bots for Discord which are created by the Discord community.

In fact, all music Bots will perform the same function. The only difference is in the given commands.

Here are three solid Music Bots on Discord to look at.



Groovy is a Discord music bot that can play music on almost any website including YouTube, Spotify etc. The Groovy bot works incredibly well as I have used it on a couple of servers.

This is the most used music bot in discord but it often creates problem when you are making a playlist for your songs to play them in queue.

The commands are a bit tougher than the remaining Music Bots.

But the quality of this bot is remarkable with a very high quality playback.

I found it easy to write the codes for this bot. They are simple and works the best

This Bot is completely stable and reliable and works very well.

Fredbot is my recommendation when it comes to the best of all music bots.

Fredbot is a highly rated music bot which is better than rhythm bot and plays a good quality music.

It is completely reliable and offers a decent sound quality.

But the main problem is that, it isn’t quite easy to initialize Fredbot as Groovy Bot. And that's the reason why most people use groovy bot.

Believe me, you won't find it hard to write the commands once you get used to it.

I specifically use this bot as it can play music from every source youtube, spotify even from my computer storage.

Well, these are the most ranked Discord for PS4 Music Bots I have found so far.

  1. The first step is finding a music bot that you’d like to experiment with (check my suggestions for choosing the best discord music bot). 
  2. Log in to the server in which you have approval.
  3. Visit the desired music bot’s website.

Final Thoughts
