Discord has a developer mode, but we suspect most people do not know this unless they are developers. Now, the developer mode is great because it makes it possible for users to add new bots they’ve created. As it stands, if you are a developer, you will want to enable developer mode first before moving forward.
When the developer mode is turned on in Discord, users should realize that additional information is now available via the client. Whatever bot you’re planning to create, you will need certain data that only the developer mode can provide.
Which Discord client version supports developer mode?
At the moment, we understand the Discord clients for Windows 11/10, Mac, and the web all have support for developer mode. Now, when it comes down to Android and iOS, users will not be able to get the job done with the native apps but can do so via the web client by using the mobile web browsers.
How to enable Developer Mode on Discord for PC and Web
When it comes down to enabling Developer Mode on Windows 11/10, users must open the native Discord app or the web client. From there, folks must sign in with their credentials right away. Learning how to do this task is very important if you’re a developer, so keep reading:
- Log-in to Discord
- Navigate to the Advanced menu
- Enable Developer Mode
- Add your application ID
- Disable Developer Mode
1] Log-in to Discord
The first thing you should do here is launch either the native Discord app or the web app through your web browser. From there, sign in with your Discord credentials to get things moving in the right direction.
2] Navigate to the Advanced menu
After you’ve signed in with your Discord credentials, please click on the Settings icon, then from the newly loaded window, select Advanced. It is quite easy to find if you look at the list of options in the left section of the window.
3] Enable Developer Mode
After selecting Advanced, you should see a section to the right that reads, Developer Mode. Next to it is a toggle button, and by default, it should be in off mode. Click the button to turn it on, and right away, Developer Mode should be active on your Discord account.
4] Add your application ID
From the same section, look to the very bottom and be sure to enable Application Test Mode. Finally, add your application ID along with the URL origin type. Complete the task by hitting the Activate button.
5] Disable Developer Mode
This is easy to accomplish. Simply return to where you originally enabled the feature. Do this by clicking on the Settings icon. From there, click on Advanced, then navigate to a section that reads, Developer Mode.
You should see the toggle button again. Click it to disable Developer Mode until you need the use of it again in the future.
