Since you can have tons of fun with your friends on Discord, it’s a shame that there’s no built-in feature that lets you record some of the fun moments on Discord servers.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways for desktop users to record audio when you using Discord, but you’ll need third-party software to do so. That shouldn’t be a problem, though, and anyone who knows how to install an app can do it quickly.
One of the best apps to record audio while you use Discord is Craig. It’s an add-on that can integrate with a server and record audio on the server with a simple command.
Let’s break down how to download and use it!
Step 1: Download Craig
There are two ways you can set up Craig on your Discord server. The great thing about Craig is that it’s a bot designed specifically for Discord audio recording, so the whole process is very convenient.
Visit the official Craig website and click the Invite Craig to your Discord server button.
You can also use the Download button below to download Craig to your computer and then run the installation manually to add it to your Discord server. The choice is yours. We prefer to invite the Craig bot to your server because it is more convenient.
Step 2: Grant Craig Access
When you click the Invite Craig to your Discord server button, you will be prompted to sign in with your Discord account. When you log in, you can select a server to add Craig to and share access to your Discord account.
Select your server from the dropdown menu and then click the Next button. In the next step of the process, you’ll need to check a few boxes to confirm how much access you want to grant Craig. You can allow the bot to control the nickname, read and send messages, and connect and add links.
When you’re satisfied with your choice of authorized settings, click the Authorize button. Note, however, that you will need your server to add Craig to the Discord bot or ask the server owner to do it for you.
Step 3: Record Discord Audio
Now that you have Craig Bot on your server and it has some authorization, the last step is to learn how to start the recording process.
This is done by a simple chat command that you can type into the server’s chat room. The command is /join because it allows Craig to record Discord audio in a server’s room.
When you want to stop recording, you type the command /stop in the chat. The recording will then stop and you will see Craig leave the channel automatically.
The good thing is that you can record audio in many different formats. Once you’ve set up the Craig bot and given it permission to access your server, you don’t need any other third-party software to record — you just need to remember the two commands to start and stop recording.
Once the recording is complete, you can download it from Craig’s official website for up to 7 days after recording. You can also set Craig to upload the recording to your Google Drive every time you stop recording.

Wrapping It Up
Hanging out with Discord can be a lot of fun, especially if you gather a lot of your friends in one room and decide to tell jokes or just play games together. Discord doesn’t have an audio recording feature built in, but the next best thing is Craig, the Discord bot that can integrate with a server and record and forward audio on command. This is still a much better option than having third-party software on your computer that you have to launch every time. With Craig, you’ll send just one command in the chat, without wasting too many computer resources in the meantime.
