This is a problem faced by many Discord Rythm bot users.

Please follow along to see some possible fixes:

  • Make sure Rythm is not on mute in your channel or on your server.

Right-click on Rythm’s icon in your channel and ensure that the “mute” and “server mute” options are unticked, unlike the ones in the image.

  • Increase Rythm’s volume in your voice channel and ensure it isn’t on 0%.

If the volume is on 0% or very low, then even if Rythm is playing music, it wouldn’t be audible.

Ensure the volume is not like the image below

And if you cannot see this option, type the “!vol” command to see it manually on the bot.
