How to Make Discord Emotes (A Simple Guide)

One way to make Discord emotes is to add custom emoji. You can do this from both the Discord website and the mobile app. There are a limited number of custom emoji slots on a standard Discord server. It would help if you had a Discord Nitro subscription to power up your server and add additional slots. 

Make Discord Emotes

To make Discord emotes, you should be a server administrator or owner. You can add them from the Discord server settings menu on the Discord website or the desktop app for Windows or Mac. First, click on the Discord server and click the down arrow next to your name in the left channel list. Click on “Server Settings” in the popup menu.

You will be able to add custom emoji in the “Emoji” tab in the settings menu of the Discord server. There is a 256 KB file size limit. Discord servers add 50 standard emoji as well as 50 animated emoji GIFs. If you want to add more, you must subscribe to Discord Nitro.

Click “Upload Emoji” to add a custom emoji. You must upload the file from your computer’s local storage. If the file meets Discord’s requirements, “Emoji” or “Animated Emoji” will be added to your lists. Each custom emoji has an alias tag that uses the filename of the emoji image loaded by default. This is the sticker you will use to add emoji to a message. You can change the default nickname by clicking the “Nickname” box next to a custom emoji and then typing a new name. 

Once installed, a custom emoji can be used on your Discord server right away. If you want to remove the emoji, click on the “Emoji” list and click the “X” in the top right to remove the emoji. The emoji will be removed immediately.
