Reading Time: 6 minutes

ChatGPT is everywhere. It can be integrated into WhatsApp and let it reply to messages on your behalf; or you can chat with it from WhatsApp and even generate images. Or if you a more of a Telegram person, then you can integrate ChatGPT with Telegram by turning it into a bot.

But apparently, ChatGPT is not in your Discord—at least not yet. But in a few moments, you’ll be able to integrate ChatGPT with Discord and add ChatGPT to Discord and have it in your Discord, too.

The way to integrate ChatGPT into Discord is to create a ChatGPT Discord bot and add it to your server. The bot will respond to you command and return with answers.

After you’ve integrated ChatGPT into Discord, you can use ChatGPT in Discord. No need to switch between apps or tabs; you can have it all within Discord.

You can even generate AI images with the ChatGPT Discord bot. And not just that, there are different personas pre-built into it so that you can easily get the most rogue and unfiltered version of ChatGPT, should you want it.

But, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Before you integrate ChatGPT with Discord and add a ChatGPT bot in Discord, there are a few things you’ll need.

Prerequisites to integrate ChatGPT with Discord

Before you can create a Chatgpt Discord bot, and integrate ChatGPT with Discord, you’ll need the following.

  • Python (3.10 or later)
  • OpenAI API key
  • Discord bot token

Installing Python

If you don’t have Python installed on your computer, download the latest version from here and install it.

If you are using Linux, you can install directly using this command:

sudo apt install python3

After you’ve installed it, check the version by running the following command

python3 --version

Getting OpenAI API key

An OpenAI API key is not in fact a prerequisite, but using it to authenticate will ensure that the ChatGPT Discord bot works flawlessly. 

Obtain an API key from OpenAI. The API key can be found in the Use Settings.

If you don’t have the secret key saved or don’t have it yet, you can create a new one by clicking the “+ Create new secret key” button. Keep the key safe and confidential; the key will not be displayed again.

Note that the API is not free. So unless you have some free credits, you need to upgrade to a paid plan by setting up a payment method.

Creating a Discord bot

Go to and click “New Application”.

  1. I followed each steps and all worked for me expect running ‘python3’ command. Nothing happened when I run it. How could I solve this problem?

    • What is the command prompt or terminal response that you got? Did you run the command from the parent directory of the Discord bot file? Without more detail I cannot help you solve the issue.

  2. “Open Command Prompt or Terminal and navigate to the unzipped folder (chatGPT-discord-bot-main). Or you can open the folder and launch Command Prompt or Terminal from there by right-clicking and selecting the option.”

    That doesn’t work. You can’t right click on the folder and open it with command prompt. I’m very, very confused. Also typing this”pip3 install -r requirements.txt” into the the command prompt with admin privileges gives me a syntax error, the same with python3. What am I supposed to type that command in? You went from telling me how to create the bot on Discord to tying in commands, but where? Python? The Command Prompt? I have no idea where I’m supposed to type this. I have an VM running Linux and Command Prompt at the ready for this command.

    • I’m not quite sure what issues you’re facing and why.

      Unzip the Discord bot file you’ve downloaded, open it. Then right-click anywhere and select “Open command window from here” and then run the command. You have to do the same to re-activate the bot.

    • You can just open it with any text editor. There are no special programs to open the file. Double click file and open with any text editor you have on your computer.

    • That may be because the file is hidden. Make sure that hidden files are displayed. The way to make hidden files visible differs from operating system to system.

    • Hi, the repository has been updated since this tutorial was published. You can go to the GitHub repository and refer to the updated guide. And check the issues (open and closed) to see if others are facing similar problems.

  4. So I’m getting the raise PrivilegedIntentsRequired(exc.shard_id) from None
    discord.errors.PrivilegedIntentsRequired: Shard ID None is requesting privileged intents that have not been explicitly enabled in the developer portal.
    It doesn’t say what those intents are, as I’ve enabled all the intents listed? Maybe I’m missing one or something?

    • Hi Mark, I’m not quite sure what the issue is. But make sure that “MESSAGE CONTENT INTENT” is toggled on. You can do that by going to and selecting the application. Then select the “Bot” option and switch the toggle.

      You can also refer to the updated guide on the GitHub page as the repository has been updated since this tutorial was published.

  5. same issue here this is the error im getting: ‘Python was not found; run without arguments to install from the Microsoft Store, or disable this shortcut from Settings > Manage App Execution Aliases.’

  6. for those of you having issues with the python commands such as python3 or pip3. When using those commands listed in this article leave the number 3 off the commands and type it like pip or python not pip3 or python3

  7. I have an issue keeping the bot running. Followed the guide and it logged in successfully, and works within Discord, as long as I have the terminal open. Once closed, the bot goes offline. Is there a guide on setting the bot up to automatically log in and stay on, without having to start it via terminal & keeping it open? thanks.
