How To Install Discord On Mac

Discord has become one of the most popular communication platforms for gamers and non-gamers alike. If you’re a Mac user, you may be wondering how to install Discord on your computer. Don’t worry, it’s easy, and this step-by-step guide will walk you through the process.

Step 1: Download Discord

The first step to installing Discord on Mac is to download the application. You can do this by visiting the official Discord website.

Click on the Download for Mac button. This will automatically download the Discord.dmg file onto your computer.

Step 2: Open the Discord.dmg file

Once the file finishes downloading, navigate to your downloads folder and find the Discord.dmg file. Double-click the file to open it. This action will pop up a new window on your Mac.

Step 3: Drag the Discord app to the Applications folder

In the new window that opens, you’ll see the Discord app and an Applications folder. Click and drag the Discord app into the Applications folder. This will initiate the installation process.

Step 4: Launch Discord

Once the installation process is complete, you can launch Discord by going to your Applications folder and double-clicking on the Discord app.

Important Note:

When launching Discord for the first time, Mac’s Gatekeeper may block the app because it’s downloaded from the internet. In this case, you can bypass it by opening “System Preferences” > “Security & Privacy” and click the “Open Anyway” button.

Step 5: Create an account or Log in

If you already have a Discord account, you can log in with your details. If you’re new to Discord, you can create an account by clicking on the Register option and following the on-screen instructions.

There you have it! You have successfully installed Discord on your Mac. Now, you can join or create servers, connect with your friends, and enjoy seamless communication.


If you run into any issues while installing Discord, the first step to troubleshooting is to ensure that your Mac meets the system requirements for running Discord. Discord requires macOS 10.10 (Yosemite) or higher. If your system meets these requirements and you’re still having trouble, try restarting your computer and repeating the installation process.

Happy gaming and chatting!
