How to Change Discord Text Color

calendar1 Last Updated

While there are no in-built color options when it comes to Discord chat, there is a way you can add color to your text by taking advantage of their coding features that the platform was built upon. Once you understand the basic principles behind writing in code on Discord, you’ll be able to send messages with color whenever you wish. 

How to Change Discord Text Color

There are a few things that you must do to make sure that the text color changes when you type on Discord. Here is what you need to know:

Step 1: You will need to type your message on three lines. The first line will need to be 3 ` symbols (this isn’t a parentheses symbol, rather the backtick symbol. You will find it above the TAB key on the left-hand side of your keyboard) followed by the name of the code language (such as CSS or HTTP). 

Step 2: Your message will need to be on the second line. To get to the second line, you may need to hold SHIFT while you press ENTER. Here you will type your message. You may need to use specific characters depending on the color you want. 

Step 3: When you are done with your message, go to the last line. Close your message with three more of the ` symbols.
