Let's face it, memes and emojis go together like bread and butter. We didn't want your Discord memes to be dreams, so we've got a nifty little system to keep track of all your emojis to always be on hand for when the occasion arises.
Adding the necessary :poop: emoji to tell someone how you really feel is pretty simple. Just hover your mouse over the grayed-out emoji next to your text bar:
Then once you click, you'll have the list at your fingertips. To rapid-fire select emojis without the window closing, just hold shift while clicking them! That way, you really can show your friends you meant business when you said "100 taco emojis".
Given a little room to grow, emojis will size up and show a bigger version of themselves. Typing a message with no other characters and just emoji will result in wumboji being shown. You can have up to 27 wumboji in a message before they get too crowded and size back down.
Note: Emoji won't wumboji themselves in Compact mode. Those are opposites. Wumboji refuse to even associate with anything claiming to be "compact". Kinda makes sense when you think about it.
In addition to your standard universal emoji, you can easily add custom emojis to your server and sync with your favorite streamers to use theirs as well!
If you've subscribed to a few partnered Twitch streamers who've enabled their own custom emojis from their stream channel, you can sync your Twitch account to Discord and then use their custom emojis in any server you join! But also...
Custom Server Emoji
You can also upload your own emoji in your server for custom use! in your server settings tab, you'll find the gloriously-simple Emoji tab:
As long as you have the manage emoji permission (or are server owner), you'll be able to access the emoji tab and upload your personalized emoji stash to the server.
Uploading is as simple as just clicking the button in the top-right corner. Keep in mind you can upload up to 50 emoji per server, and that those emoji will only work in the server they're uploaded in. For optimal emoji resolution, you can upload them in sizes up to 128x128 pixels, but keep in mind that they'll be resized to 32x32. Your emoji list will sort custom emojis by server, so they'll be easy to pick out.
It's important to know that custom emojis can ONLY be used in the server they were uploaded on. If you try to enter an emoji from another server, you'll get hit with an unhappy error message:
(If you type your emoji names, or...)
(If you use the emoji picker)
You'll notice that some servers have both grayed out AND globally available emoji. While manually-uploaded emoji are server specific, (and thus can't be used in other servers!) integrated emoji can be used in any server! Those are the ones synced over from a twitch channel or BTTV integration.
Sometimes an emote is worth a thousand words. Instead of typing in your own emote or response to someone's declaration of how cool their brand new mod role is, you can react to it and let them know that it's fire:
Just click the little plus smiley-face icon next to the edit message menu icon to pull up your emote menu to deal your best reaction emote:
One fire emoji not enough? The same 'Add Reaction' button will show up next to the last left reaction emoji, where you can add all the different types of fire you can think of:
Pro Tip: Holding the Shift key when selecting emotes in this menu will let you zoom through and add multiple reactions without re-opening the menu. Neat.
There are a few more tips and tricks you can use to become an emoji-reacting-expert. Check them out:
- If you want to take a reaction back, just click on the box of the reaction you sent, and it'll poof away.
- Right-click the message you want to react to, and select one of your more commonly used emojis for quick access:
Who Said What
Also in the right-click menu is the "reactions" tab. This nifty little menu will let you view who reacted with what emoji:
That wraps up everything emoji! Go forth and let your friends know specifically how that message made you feel.
