Hey there! As a tech enthusiast and a Discord user myself, I understand the importance of being able to spoiler text in Discord chats. Whether you want to avoid spoiling a movie, TV show, or book for others, or you simply want to add an element of surprise to your conversation, knowing how to use spoilers in Discord can come in handy. In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of spoiling text in Discord, step-by-step. Let’s get started!
First and foremost, it’s essential to note that the ability to spoiler text in Discord is a feature available on Discord’s desktop and mobile applications. Unfortunately, it’s not currently supported on Discord’s web version. So make sure you have the desktop or mobile app installed.
Step 1: Install the Discord App
If you haven’t already, head over to discord.com/download and download the Discord app for either Windows, macOS, iOS, or Android, depending on your device. Once downloaded and installed, open the app and log in to your Discord account.
Step 2: Access the Text Editor
Now that you’re logged in to Discord, find the chat or channel where you want to send a spoiler message. Click on the text input box to open the text editor. This is where you’ll type your spoiler message.
Step 3: Format the Spoiler Text
To format your text as a spoiler, you’ll need to use the double vertical bars, also known as pipes (||), before and after the text you want to hide. For example:
||This is a spoiler message!||
Once you’ve typed your spoiler message within the double vertical bars, you’re ready to send it.
Step 4: Send the Spoiler Message
To send your spoiler message, press the Enter key or click on the send button within the text editor. Your spoiler text will be sent to the chat or channel, and it will be hidden until someone clicks or taps on it.
It’s important to note that spoiler messages behave differently depending on the device you’re using. On desktop, spoiler messages will appear as a black box with the text “Spoiler” when collapsed. When clicked, the spoiler will expand, revealing the hidden content. On mobile devices, spoiler messages will appear as a blurred image, and tapping on it will reveal the hidden text. This adds an extra layer of protection against accidental spoilers.
Step 5: Reading Spoiler Messages
If you come across a spoiler message in a Discord chat or channel, you can reveal it by clicking or tapping on the spoiler text. Once revealed, the hidden content will be visible, allowing you to read it.
And there you have it! You now know how to properly spoiler text in Discord. It’s a handy feature that can help keep discussions spoiler-free and maintain the element of surprise. So go ahead, have fun, and keep the mystery alive!
