Discord Text Formatting Guide

Texting has always been a fun way of communicating. Be it your everyday friend or a complete stranger you meet online. There is just no doubt in that. You can take as much time you want to frame your reply, send it whenever you want and at certain times not send a reply at all since the person at the other end of the line cannot see you or know what you are doing or maybe thinking. Whereas in case of voice over line communication, it always seems necessary to say something or the other when someone else is talking to you. And especially when an introvert like me is on the other end of the line, that does feel like a very big task. Also, when the person you are talking to is a complete stranger than getting the hang of talking to that person does most often take time to get the hang off.

However, in this article of ours, we will discuss different ways in which you can make texting over Discord more fun and intuitive by trying out some of the various formats that Discord has to offer.

How will we do it?

Well, to be honest, there is not much to it. We just need to add a few codes before and after your desired text and Voila! your text format is changed automatically. And when I say codes, there is absolutely no need to get scared. These codes are no Rocket science but pretty preliminary. So, even if you have no knowledge about coding at all. You could still implement them very easily.
