Like most streamers, listening to music while playing Twitch.tv may prove to be a practical necessity. It’s an incredible feeling to match the rhythm with the beating of your heart during an epic and intense game moment. So much so that you will want to share this feeling with those in your Discord.
Of course, there is a chance to just “shake”, enjoying the company of your presenters with listening. There is nothing wrong with that. It may even help some discover new songs.
Whatever the reason, music and games are a combination made in Valhalla and you should enjoy the syndication whenever you get the chance.
There are two main ways to play music on Discord without sacrificing sound quality, not only for yourself but also for your peers.
