How to Quote Someone On Discord

How to use Discord quote is one of the most demanded questions asked by the discord user. It helps users to express themselves more frequently. Using quotes on Discord was not an easy task before a couple of years. But being an instant chatting app, this feature was the most wanted one in the community.

Discord was first launched in 2015 as a digital distribution platform designed for creating communities. Users can communicate with voice calls, video calls, instant text messaging, share media and files in private chats or in their own community called ‘server’. Around 400 Million people use Discord around the globe.

All of the other alternatives to Discord had the quote feature from the very beginning. Discord users were in a vain in this case as there was not any official system to quote someone on this app. They had to use third-party bots or code blocks. Discord quote was first introduced in early 2019.

The method to quote someone on Discord is almost the same in every available platform. There might be some slight difference in Multi-line quoting while using Android devices. But the major steps to follow remains the same. In this article, We are going to talk about the top ways to quote someone on Discord.

1. Using Block Quotes

This is the latest and most convenient way to use this feature that Discord has introduced recently. It is so user-friendly and pretty simple to get started. You can use both single and multi-line quoting using this method.

Single Line Quoting

You can use single-line quoting on Discord when you do not have more than one line to quote someone. This means, there is no additional second-line or paragraph. Follow the methods described below to do so:

  1. Add a ‘>’ symbol at the beginning of your text.
  2. Then, Press the space button to make a gap after the symbol.
  3. Type the line that you want to quote.
  4. Hit the enter button to send the text. It will be sent as a quote.
Multi-Line Quoting

Multi-line quoting is used when you have a lot of sentences to quote. You can just simply put a ‘>’ before every line or paragraph that you are sending to quote it. But it will make you feel annoying after a while. There is an easy and time-consuming way to do Multi-line quoting. You need to follow the steps below to do so.

  1. Add a ‘>>>’ symbol at the beginning of your text.
  2. Then, press the space button to make a gap after the symbol.
  3. Type the line that you want to quote.
  4. Hit the enter button to make new paragraphs for writing more lines.
  5. Send the text after you have finished your quote.

As we said earlier, there is a slight difference in multiline quoting on Desktop. Both ‘>’ and ‘>>>’ works as a Multi-line quoting if you use this app on your PC. Press Return and then Backspace to make it a single-line quote.

2. Using Code Blocks

Discord users used to use Code Blocks for quoting someone before Block Quotes was introduced. This method is still available for the users as an alternative to the Block Quotes method. You can also use both single and multi-line quoting using this method.

Follow these easy steps to use Single-line quoting with Code Blocks.

  3. Add another backtick at the end of your writing.
  4. Hit the enter button to send the text. It will be sent as a quote.
Multi-Line Quoting

The multi-line quoting system is almost the same as single-line quoting. All you to do is put triple backticks ( “` ) at the beginning and at the end of your text. Do not forget to type the text without adding any gap between the backticks and your writings.
