How cool is it to know that you can ring someone on Discord? 😎
Discord has become one of my favorite apps to use, and now that I know I can also ring someone there, it makes me love it even more than before. Also, you don’t have to switch between different software; you can make those video calls regardless of whether you use the desktop app, web browser, or mobile app.
The way to do it is easy, and in this article, I’ll cover how you can ring someone on Discord.
If you’ve had this situation when Discord is not ringing for incoming calls, I must say you are not alone, as I have also encountered such issues.
The reason is mainly that the audio settings need to be set correctly or due to bugs within Discord. But you can quickly solve this by uninstalling and reinstalling Discord or checking whether you’ve set the audio setting as needed.
To check whether you’ve set the audio settings for Discord, you’ll need to do the following:
Before you do anything from the steps mentioned below, update the Discord app. From your phone’s or PC’s settings, turn on the Discord Incoming Call Sound.
Ensure that the audio settings on your phone/PC are not mute or in ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode.
Allow permissions for the Discord app.
Change your server settings.
A few things you need to know about Discord calls
Since they have proven to be suitable for regular use, many people regularly use them on their PCs. That being said, if you too want to try and use Discord calls on a more frequent basis, I’ve gathered some essential and helpful information for you to know;
Discord doesn’t have time restrictions, so you can be on a call as long as you want; however, you won’t be able to be on a call just by yourself, waiting till other people join that call. Discord’s system is made so that it reboots after some time.
Discord calls are free of charge.
Discord functions like other VoIP calling apps, so video backgrounds are also available for the calls; however, if you are a standard Discord user, you will get only eight background options and one blur option. You’ll have to switch to a Discord Nitro subscription if you want more than those.
Discord users can share their screens or stream a game and call other participants at 720p/30fps. Higher resolutions require a Discord Niro subscription. Remember that Discord does not offer end-to-end encryption for the calls you make, meaning your calls are not very safe, and third parties or hackers can access that data.
Hopefully, this information helps you as this article, covers how you can ring someone on Discord PC.
So, why wait?! Call and test this option right now. Your Discord buddies are waiting for your voice or a video call for you to make strategies, share experiences and have fun. The steps are easy, and you can do it both from the PC and mobile.
