Looking for the easiest method on how to quote someone on Discord? It's pretty easy! Here is a super simple guide with screenshots.

If you’re part of a large community on Discord, it can be difficult to maintain a conversation with a specific user. Text channels can quickly become cluttered with thousands of messages.

Fortunately, it is possible to quote someone to make it easier to send messages back and forth. This article describes some of the ways you can do that.

Using The Reply Function

The quickest and easiest way to quote someone is to use Discord’s built-in Reply function.

To do this, all you need to do is hover over a message, click the three dots to expand the menu, then press reply. Next, you simply need to write your message and send it.

That’s all you need to do, but there are a few alternative methods that we want to share with you.

Quoting With Text Formatting Commands

If you prefer not to use the Reply function on Discord, you can also try one of the many formatting commands as a quote.

Using “>”

If you want to quote text, try using “>”. Simply type the symbol immediately before the sentence and send it.

If you press Shift + Enter, you can quote multiple sentences at once.

Example: > Hello!

Using Code Block

A code block is another method you can use to quote someone and it could be the best available option.

To use a code block, you must add ““`“. That is the symbol located right below the Escape key on your keyboard. This key is usually referred to as tilde (~), but we’re looking for the other symbol, which can be accessed by holding Shift.

Example: “` Hello Rythm! “`

Using A Quote Bot

Your other option is to add a quote bot to your Discord server.

However, there aren’t many choices for such bots. To use the most popular one, you will need to have BetterDiscord installed. We already have a detailed guide on how to install and use it.

With that installed, you can add this bot to your server and utilize the specified commands to quote another user.

That’s about it!

By using these methods, you will definitely be able to have a better conversation with other Discord members.
