There are three easiest ways to install Discord, which are as follows:

Let’s discuss each method in detail so that it would be easy for you to select the best from it.

1: Install Discord on Raspberry Pi Through Pi-Apps

Pi-Apps is a platform built especially for Raspberry Pi users to easily download different applications without needing to run any command on the terminal. Since  Discord isn’t available for ARM-based architecture, you can install this app on your device by first installing Pi-Apps using the following script:

$ wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botspot/pi-apps/master/install | bash

Click on the Pi-Apps icon and select the “Execute” option to open it on the desktop.

Select the “Search” icon to find the Discord application.

Click on the “OK” button.

Double click the Discord option.

Select the “Install” option to allow Pi-Apps to install Discord.

Once the Discord installation is completed, go to the Raspberry Pi menu option, and there in the Internet option, click on the “WebCord”.

This will open the WebCord application on your desktop, where you will need to create an account using the Register option and once it’s done, you will be able to use Discord on your Raspberry Pi device.

2: Install Discord on Raspberry Pi Through WebCord Deb Package

You can also install Discord on Raspberry Pi by downloading the WebCord deb packages from GitHub using the following command:

$ wget https://github.com/SpacingBat3/WebCord/releases/download/v3.5.1/webcord_3.5.1_arm64.deb

After downloading the WebCord deb package, use the following command to install the package on your Raspberry Pi device.

$ sudo apt install ./webcord_3.5.1_arm64.deb

Once the WebCord installation is completed, you can open the application from the Raspberry Pi menu and use the Discord service on your Raspberry Pi device.
