Sometimes you try to send images or files to your friends on Discord but it still keeps sending. You may wonder what caused this and how you can send them through.
This happens because the maximum upload file size allowed in Discord is 8MB while the files you upload are over it. So, is there any way to bypass this file size limit?
What is Discord?
Discord is a voiceover IP and messaging program, particularly used by members of the popular game streaming platform, Twitch.
Discord is completely free to use and is available as a web, mobile, and desktop application.
Within Discord, users can create their own servers and host private, password protected, or public channels within those servers. Channel moderators then send invitations to users in order for them to join a channel. Echosec accesses Discord’s public channel API.
How to Bypass Discord File Size Limit?
Unfortunately, there is no real way to bypass Discord file limit but you can compress the files to reduce the size before uploading to Discord for the successful uploads or increase your file size limit up to 50MB by upgrading to Nitro. How amazing it is, right?
For those who have never heard about Nitro, it is a Discord booter giving you unlimited access to a wide range of games. With awesome chat perks, Nitro helps to increase your all-in-one Discord voice, video, and text chat.
If you want to share a file in discord without Nitro, split your files into smaller ones which are lower than 8MB using some compression tool or just uploading it to some other free file host and then copying the link to chat.
Change the File Upload Size Limit
Before uploading files on Discord, you can also adjust their size limit to ensure
Here’s how to change the File Upload size limit on any form:
1. Add a FILE UPLOAD field to your form.
2. Click the GEAR icon to open its properties.

See, if you try to upload a file to Discord that’s over 8MB you’d see this message again, that’s to be expected. But what if you file’s just under 8MB? It should work fine right? So now you know how to make files smaller for discord
Keep in mind that to keep Discord smooth, we have to keep any files below 8mb. Otherwise, you’re free to bombard your friends with Pokemon pics to your heart’s content! Hope that with this post now you know how to send large files on discord without nitro.
