How to change the region of the Discord Server?

For a Discord server, the closer you are to the server in real life, better will be your connection. It is so because when your physical location is closer to the server then you will be getting lower latency.

Lower latency or Ping is generally a good thing for online connections. The lower your latency is, the higher quality connection you have.

  1. Ummm…. I’ve tried to follow these instructions on both the Windows PC Discord Application, and from the iOS Discord App on iPhone and when I go to server settings, and overview there isn’t an option for Server Region anywhere. I have bots set up that say I’m in India based on servers settings but I can’t see, nor change it to reflect that I’m in the USA.
