Discord is undoubtedly the best VoIP-based communication platform for gamers and casual users. Discord is available for all leading platforms including Android, iOS, Web, Windows, and macOS. Discord packs lots of features like TTS function, AFK channel, etc. Quoting someone is one such feature available on Discord.
Discord offers all sorts of options to communicate with anyone including the support for voice calls, video calls, messages, etc. Back in the day, the option to quote someone was not available on Discord. This means, there was no option for you to reply to a particular person’s message on a Discord server.
Later after an update, Discord introduced the option to Quote anyone’s message on any server. This option makes it easy if you want to reply to someone exclusively. Quoting is like highlighting a particular message and replying to it only. So, let’s see how to quote someone on Discord.
How to Quote Messages on Discord
There are multiple ways by which you can quote someone on Discord. Below, you will find 4 different ways to do the same. Follow any one of the methods that you feel comfortable with and use it to quote anyone’s message.
The steps mentioned below will be the same for Discord on Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Web. The option to quote messages is available on Discord Canary and BetterDiscord as well.
Single Line Quoting on Discord
If you want to quote a single line only, without any line breaks, then you can use this method. It is as simple as using > symbol while typing a message. Follow the steps below to get more ideas regarding the same.
- Open Discord and select the server in which you want to send a quoted message
- Head over to the message box and type > symbol before the message. Following the > symbol, type the actual content that you want to quote. Make sure it stays within a single line.
- Once you are done typing the message, simply hit the Send button and the message will be sent successfully.
This is how the single-line quoted message will look like on Discord.
Example: > Message goes here
Multi-line Quoting on Discord
The above-mentioned symbol can be used at times when you want to send a message that takes no more than a single line. The same won’t work for messages in multiple lines.
If you want to send messages that are longer than a single line then you want to use the multi-line quoting feature on Discord. Similar to single-line quoting, you want to use a different symbol to quote it.
- Open Discord
- Open the server in which you want to send quotes multi-line message
- Just type >>> symbol before the message and type the content after the symbol
- Now hit the send button and a multi-line quoted message will be sent successfully.
This is how a multi-line quoted message will look like in Discord.
Example: >>> Message goes here
