Discord has announced(Opens in a new window) that it is rolling out themes for Nitro subscribers on desktop.
In a blog post, the instant messaging app popular with gamers said it is to launch 16 unique theme colors for its $9.99 a month Nitro subscribers. Unfortunately, the themes aren’t accessible to those on the cheaper Nitro Basic plan which costs $2.99 a month.
That said, the new colors, which include Chroma Glow, Citrus Sherbert, and Midnight Blurple, can be previewed by anyone with a Discord account. Desktop users can access the new colors by navigating to Settings and clicking Appearance where a new color section appears under the existing Light and Dark themes.
Nitro’s benefits include the ability to upload bigger files and send longer messages with a max 4,000 character length, as well as customize your profile, and 4K and 60fps streaming.
For those who don’t wish to splurge ten dollars a month on Nitro, the BetterDiscord(Opens in a new window) project is a feasible alternative. The project, which seeks to enhance what Discord offers and is free to download, offers a theming engine that lets users create custom themes. As The Verge notes(Opens in a new window), the themes on offer aren’t as “user-friendly” as those on Nitro, however.
