Fix Discord Soundboard Not Working

Follow the below tips and solutions to make sure that you are using the Soundboard feature the right way.

1. Soundboard is only available for Desktop users

The in-app Discord Soundbard is only available for Discord Desktop users. So, if you are trying to use the Soundboard feature on your mobile devices, then you’ll not be able to do so.

However, as a mobile or any other platform user, you’ll be able to hear the Soundboard sound in the Discord servers but you’ll be able to send one from your device as you’ll not be able to see any appropriate option for that.

2. Update Discord

As I have already told you, Discord has just started rolling out the in-app Soundboard feature to its mass audience. So, if you have not updated your Discord app then please consider doing so.

Updating Discord on your Windows and Mac PCs is really simple. Just close the Discord app from your devices completely and reopen it.

Restart Discord on Windows

1. On your Windows PC, click on the red cross icon (X) on the top-right of the Discord window to close it.

2. Also, click on the upward arrow from the right side of the Taskbar, right-click on the Discord icon, and select Quit Discord.

3. Finally, search for Discord in the search bar and open it again. Discord will now look for updates and if there will be any available, it will get installed.

Restart Discord on Mac

1. On your Mac, click on the red cross icon on the top-left of the window to close the Discord app.

2. Also, right-click on the Discord icon in the dock and click on Quit.

3. Finally, open Discord again, and it will automatically check for updates and install them.

3. Increase the Soundboard Volume

If you are not able to hear the Soundboard sound, it is possible that the Soundboard volume is set to 0% or very low. To check and increase the Soundboard volume:

1. Open the Discord app on your PC and open the User Settings by clicking on the gear icon.

2. Switch to the Voice & Video tab from the left pane and go to the Soundboard Volume option.

3. Here, check if the Volume slider is set to 0%. If it is, then slide it to some higher value at your convenience.

4. Remove the Soundboard restriction

If you are not able to upload audio files to the Server Soundboard then it is possible that either your discord profile doesn’t have enough permissions to do so. In this case, you can try contacting your Discord Server admin for the resolution.

Moreover, if you are a Discord server admin and want to allow your users to upload Soundboard to the server, follow the below steps:

1. Open Discord and go to your Discord Server settings.

2. Click on the Roles tab from the left pane and select the roles of your server for which you want to allow Soundboard uploading.

3. Finally, toggle on the switch for the Manage Expressions option.

This will allow the users of your Discord server members to add or remove the custom stickers, emojis, and sounds.

5. Allow users to use Soundboard

It is also possible that the admin of your Discord server has not allowed its users to use the Soundboard sounds. In this case, contact your Server admin for resolution.

And if you are the server admin, here’s how you can allow your server users to use Soundboard audios.

1. Open Discord and go to your Discord Server settings.

2. Click on the Roles tab from the left pane and select the role for which you want to allow the use of Soundboard.

3. Finally, toggle on the switch for the Use Soundboard option.
