If you’re one of Discord’s users that are not the biggest fans of the platform’s notifications sounds, you’re probably wondering whether there is a way those Discord noises could be changed.
Although Discord doesn’t have a list of notification sounds to choose from, there are still some ways to change them– but only on Windows and Android devices.
Read on to learn how to change the Discord notification sound.
If you happen to be a Discord app and Windows user, you’re in luck; Discord notification sounds can only be changed if you’re using the desktop application for Windows.
Discord may not have a notification sound tab, but the platform is customisable just enough to allow users to edit app sounds.
There are two ways to change Discord sounds: through the app files and with Better Discord.
On Discord users can change the notification sound by editing it via the configuration files, which the app saves on the PC itself.
To change Discord sounds via the files follow these steps.
Here’s a list of sounds that works for most users:
F_000031 – notification for direct messages
F_000032 – unknown
F_000033 – unknown
F_000110 – default notification
F_000112 – disconnect
F_000113 – connect
This should make sure that the Discord sound effects in the app are changed.
Note: Mistakes during editing can lead to crashes and other issues which may require you to delete and reinstall the app.
If you don’t want to mess with the Discord app files, you can change Discord sounds by downloading Better Discord– a client mode that lets users modify the appearance and functionality of the app.
The mode, which allows for customisation by opening up room for custom plugins, comes with a steep learning curve, but if you learn your way around it, you will find it much easier to make any changes to the app.

As someone who grew up gaming and always had a love for random facts, being able to write about gaming and technology for a living has been an absolute treat. Whenever I’m not researching my next topic for Don’t Disappoint Me, I am deflecting the attacks of Bosses in Sekiro, investigating a murder in Disco Elysium, helping Zagreus escape the underworld in Hades, or flanking enemies in Call of Duty with my squad. Having studied English language and literature has helped me merge these two worlds of random facts and gaming into a fulfilling career.
