How to Quote Someone on Discord

You can easily quote messages in Discord irrespective of you using the platform on your IOS, Android, or desktop. You can follow the same methods for IOS, Android, or desktop. In our situation, we are using mobile-Discord to explain how to quotes messages in Discord.

Method 1: Single-line Quoting 

You can use the single-line quoting method when you want to quote a text that takes up one single line. Therefore, if you want to quote a message where there are no line breaks or paragraphs, then you may use the single-line quoting method on Discord. Here is how to quote someone on Discord using the single-line quoting method.

1. Open Discord and head to the conversation where you want to quote a message.

2. Now, type > symbol and hit space once.

3. Finally, type your message after you hit the space bar. Here is how a single-line quote looks like.

Method 2: Multi-line Quoting

You can use the multi-line quoting method when you want to quote a message that takes up more than one line, such as a paragraph or a long text message with line breaks. You can easily type > in front of every new line or paragraph that you want to quote. However, typing > in front of every line or paragraph can be time-consuming if the quote is long. Therefore, here is how to quote messages in Discord by using a simple multi-line quoting method:

1. Open Discord and head to the conversation where you wish to quote the message.

2. Now, type >>> and hit the spacebar once.

3. After hitting the spacebar, start typing the message that you want to quote.

4. Finally, hit enter to send the message. This is how a multi-line quote looks like. Check the screenshot for reference.

If you wish to exit the quote, then the only way to exit the quote is by sending the message and starting a new one, or you can backspace >>> symbol to exit the multi-line quote.

However, the multi-line quote works slightly different on the desktop version of Discord as both ‘>’ and ‘>>>’ gives you a multi-line quote. Therefore to make a single line quote on the desktop version, all you have to do is press return and then make a backspace to return to normal text.
