What are Discord Bots? 

Discord Bots are automated programs that serve a specific function within the context of a Discord server. Once a user has created a Discord server, they can add bots to enhance the experience of all users on the server. Bots can serve a variety of functions such as playing music, sharing videos, and much more. Those skilled with the Python language can even design custom Discord Bots that can be hand-tailored to any variety of unique purposes. In short, Discord Bots add a whole host of features to Discord servers and can be installed with relative ease.

Once you have figured out which bot you want to install, you can start the installation process. While the process may differ slightly for different bots, most of them can be installed in the same way as Groovy Bot, the bot used in this tutorial.
