Discord Nitro Subscription – How it works
Before the guide starts, you should be formally introduced to the Nitro version in Discord and what it entails.

Discord Nitro allows users to avail several fancy and advanced features within the messaging and streaming platform, including better quality audio content, sharing content files that are larger than 8 MB with up to 100MB high-quality file sharing, high-quality screen sharing, and videos with access to streaming in [email protected], several custom emojis for you, etc. It costs $9.99 to subscribe per month and $99.99 if you directly want to go for an annual subscription, giving you several dollars off as a collective subscription discount.
