Nitro has a lot of useful perks for individuals who spend a number of time in Discord, comparable to the power to add bigger information, ship longer messages, and customise your profile, however I’d argue that you simply don’t must be an influence consumer to understand aesthetic modifications. It’s straightforward to think about individuals wanting themes however not having the ability to justify such a excessive price ticket for an app that they only use casually.
Discord does allow you to preview the themes to see what you possibly can make the app appear like for those who had been a subscriber. (You’ll be able to entry the preview pane by going to Settings > Look, then clicking the “Preview Theme” button.) In my view, there’s a pleasant mixture of pastel-colored gentle themes and funky / moody darkish themes — there’s even a “blurple” one that just about feels like a Verge theme.
For individuals who don’t wish to pay for Nitro, there are nonetheless methods to theme Discord. The BetterDiscord project has been working to boost the app for some time now, and the record of enhancements features a theming engine. And whereas it enables you to create really customized themes somewhat than supplying you with a bunch of premade ones to select from, it’s admittedly not fairly as user-friendly because the Nitro model.
