How to Use Soundboard on Discord

To use the soundboard on discord, you need to first join a voice channel on Discord. Once you’re in a voice channel, look for the “Activities” section, and you’ll see a new button that looks like a music album. Click on it to bring up the soundboard panel. If you’re on mobile, you can still hear any sounds played on the soundboard, but you won’t be able to use it yourself.

Default Sounds

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to using the soundboard, Discord has got you covered with a few preloaded sounds. These include a polite golf clap, a cricket to break the silence, and a “wah wah waaah” sad horn for when something goes wrong.

Uploading Sounds

If you want to take your soundboard game to the next level, you can upload your own sounds to the server. To do this, you’ll need the “Manage Server” permission or own the server. Head over to Server Settings > Soundboard to upload new sounds. Make sure to choose sounds that are appropriate and in good taste.

Moderating Sounds

Moderators can restrict soundboard usage to only sounds from their server or disable soundboard usage entirely using role and channel permissions. This is helpful if you want to limit who can use the soundboard in your server. As a user, if soundboard usage is disabled, you won’t be able to access the soundboard panel.
