Discord recently announced another new feature to the talk and text platform of choice. Discord Nitro, currently available to all users, is an optional subscription service for Discord and a great way to support the development team. All current and core features of Discord will remain free, and updates will continue to add features to the unpaid version we all know and love. Discord Nitro simply gives you a little extra something to add on to the core experience.
Features included with your Nitro membership: bigger file uploads (from 8MB to 50MB!), the ability to use your emotes on any server and in direct messages, and the ability to have animated profile avatars. This GIF avatar plays both in your profile and when moused over in chat. You will also receive a special profile badge from Discord to display how long you’ve been subscribed.
Discord Nitro is only $4.99 a month or you can opt in for a yearly subscription at $49.99. (and get two months free!) To sign up and start enjoying these features right away, just go into your user settings and find the “Nitro” tab right under “Account”. Enjoy using those custom emotes everywhere and anywhere. Discord also wants your feedback on the features, so be sure to stop by their Twitter and tell them what you think.
