Midjourney is the easiest to use AI image generation tool available on the market. Even completely free, anyone with a Discord account can join the official server and try out the powerful software in one of the #newbie channels.
After about 25 prompts, however, that’s it – then you have to pay at least $10 to continue. Conveniently, you also get a private chat with Midjourney’s Discord bot, so that your own pictures don’t permanently disappear among all the other people’s creations. This is also a great way to share your own prompt ideas directly with friends.
An own environment for your pictures without paying for Midjourney is possible since recently, because the Discord bot can be invited to own servers. On August 2, 2022, David Holz first announced in the #announcement channel that the “Midjourney Multiverse” would be launched. “Hey @everyone ITS TIME. We’re gonna try to launch 🪐 🪐🚀 THE MIDJOURNEY MULTIVERSE 🚀 🪐🪐”
How many members can my Discord server have so that I can use the Midjourney Bot?
Initially, it was only possible to invite the bot to servers with 1,000 or fewer members in order to ensure sufficient stability. These tests were apparently survived without any problems, because in the meantime even servers with 15,000 or less members are able to use the Midjourney Discord bot.
This is all a bit risky. Please bear with us if anything blows up. It’s gonna be awesome to see AI bloom across the entire Discord ecosystem
“If you bring our tech to another server you are an ambassador ❤️ and we please request you try to show off our technology in the greatest possible light and to use it to help make everyone more optimistic about the future and more empowered as creative individuals.”
Of course, even on your own server you cannot generate an infinite number of images with Midjourney for free. The normal limit of 25 prompts applies here as well. These are charged to each Discord account that uses the /imagine command and not to the person who added the bot to the server.

Basically, the Midjourney bot works directly in any publicly viewable channel. Otherwise, you have to revoke its rights in the settings for a specific channel. You can see whether the Midjourney bot works in the respective channel when you see a suggestion for completing the command after entering
