@discordjs/voice is a TypeScript implementation of the Discord Voice API for Node.js.


  • Send and receive* audio in Discord voice-based channels
  • A strong focus on reliability and predictable behaviour
  • Horizontal scalability and libraries other than discord.js are supported with custom adapters
  • A robust audio processing system that can handle a wide range of audio sources

*Audio receive is not documented by Discord so stable support is not guaranteed


Node.js 16.11.0 or newer is required.

npm install @discordjs/voice
yarn add @discordjs/voice
pnpm add @discordjs/voice
bun add @discordjs/voice
