How to add emojis to Discord
The easiest option is to use the emojis that are accessible with any Discord account. To do that, you have a few options.
Firstly, you can use the emoji menu. In the desktop and browser apps, you can open this by clicking the gray smiley face on the right side of the message box. In the mobile app, tap the gray smiley face on the left side of the message box.
The emoji menu contains both standard and Discord-exclusive emojis, as well as a section that tracks what emojis you've used the most.
Alternatively, you can type in the name of the emoji you want to use. Every emoji has a name, bracketed by colons, which you can find via the emoji menu. For example, 😄 is named :smile: and so on.
The other option you may wish to consider is uploading your own custom emojis to your Discord account.
How to add custom emojis to a Discord server
The process is simple, assuming you have permission to add them to the server. Discord will even resize images of up to 128x128 pixels so that they fit the required specifications.
Note, however, that if you don't have a Discord Nitro account, you can only use these custom emojis in the server they've been uploaded to. You'll need to pay for a Nitro account to use them in other servers. You'll also need a Nitro account to use animated emojis.
To upload your own emojis, you'll need to use the desktop or browser version of Discord.
1. Open the server you want to upload an emoji to, and then click the down-arrow next to the server's name in the top-left corner of the screen.
2. Select "Server Settings."
3. Click "Emojis" in the left sidebar and then select "Upload Emoji."
4. Select your image and add it to your server.
If you plan on doing this, be aware that you're capped at 50 custom emojis per server by default.
If you want more emoji slots, you'll need to have users with Discord Nitro accounts "boost" your server. If enough users boost your server, you can add up to 250 custom emojis.

If you're not on Discord, you should be. What started as a place for gamers to discuss, chat, and share content has blossomed into one of the most useful community-based social media engines on the internet.
Part of what makes Discord such a great place for communities to thrive is the range of control that community leaders can have over their servers. So many aspects of a Discord server can be modified and customized that individual servers begin to feel more like the forum sites of the past, all gathered together in one place.
Watch our YouTube tutorial for a full walkthrough or use this free Custom Discord Emote Template.
One fun & easy way to distinguish your Discord server from other communities is to let your users make & send custom server emojis in their chats & conversations. But how can you add your own custom emojis? It's actually pretty simple – here's what you should know:
- Who canadd custom emojis?
- How to make an emoji from any picture
- How to add your emoji to a Discord server
1. Who Can Add Custom Emojis?
One of the main ways Discord allows server administrators to customize and control their servers is by setting up roles for its members. Discord caps the total number of roles at 250, far more than most servers need, and each role has different privileges, freedoms, and responsibilities.
One of the many, many privileges that can be enabled for any role is emoji management. If you are an administrator of your server, you can go to the "Roles" section of your server settings, select one of your server's roles, and scroll down to find the "Manage Emojis" toggle. For any role, the emoji management privilege can be enabled, so members in that role can access the emoji manager through their Server Settings tab.
NOTE: Administrators can technically enable emoji management for the @everyone role, but this role can't access server settings, so members are still unable to manage the server's emojis.
2. How to Make an Emoji From Any Picture
You can use any picture you want as a custom Discord emoji. Use a photo you've taken, a picture from Google Image Search, a transparent PNG imagesor even an animated GIFs. You can even upload a short clip of video and convert it to a GIF by using the dropdown in the "Export" button.
To convert a picture or GIF into a Discord emoji, I recommend using the Kapwing Discord emoji template,which automatically resizes any image or GIF you upload to a 128x128 pixel square format. Click "Edit this Template" from the template landing page to ensure that your output PNG meets Discord's specifications.
Dimensions: Discord emojis are really small. When you upload your file, it will be resized to 32x32 pixels. The maximum aspect ratio is 128x128 pixels, so resize your image before uploading to Discord. Another technical requirement is that no emoji file can be larger than 256KB in size. See Discord's full documentation here.
Once you get into Kapwing's Studio, upload your image, photo, or GIF. On export, your media will be downloaded with the correct size.
Alternatively, you can use the "Custom Size" button to enter any pixel value for the canvas dimensions.
Some Discord emotes work better as transparent PNG images, so they look more like real emojis – using the Discord emoji template, choose the "Erase" tool to remove sections with a Magic Wand and touch up the edges with a precise eraser.
Then, make the background transparent in the Kapwing Studio to download your Discord emoji as a PNG.
You can also add text overlays to your custom emoji. Just click "Text" and customize its font, size, position, style, color, and animation. Once you're done, just click "Export Image" and "Download" to save the emoji to your device.
If you're not signed into a Kapwing account, there will be a Kapwing watermark on the output image. Sign in or sign up using your Google or Facebook account to remove the watermark for free.
3. How to Add Your Emoji to a Discord Server
If your role allows you to manage the server's emojis, it takes under a minute to upload your own. Start by clicking the arrow next to the server name and selecting "Server Settings" – if you don't see this option, it means your role won't allow you to add emojis 😕.
In your server settings, go to the Emoji tab and choose the purple "Upload Emoji" button. Select the emoji file you created, and voilà! Your custom Discord emoji has been added to the server's emoji bank.

Discord is more than just a VoIP for gamers in the midst of an epic raid or battle royale. It’s a service that allows server owners to keep track of all their members and provide those members with a place to verbally and textually mingle.
No communications platform would be complete without the emoji. Text-based conversations can be tricky without context or inflection. That’s where these small icons come into play. With the emoji you can add emotions to your messages. But, they’re also fun.
In this article we’ll teach you all about Discord emojis!
Using Emojis On Discord
To start, we’ll show you how to add an emoji to your messages. Discord does offer a standard list of emojis like most other platforms.
Open Discord and navigate to the text channel or message you’d like to use. Then, just hover your mouse over the grayed-out emoji to the right-side of your text bar:
It’ll turn from gray to full color while hovering. Click on the emoji icon to pull up a list of available emojis right there at your fingertips. If you find yourself wanting to drop more than one, you can just hold down the Shift key while clicking away.
You can use the dropdown at the top to quickly toggle between different genres. From nature, to food, gaming, and even custom emojis, you will find all of them here.
A Wumboji is an emoji that has been given a little bit too much room to grow. By foregoing any text and instead of dropping a single solitary emoji as a message, that emoji will blow up in size for all to see.
You are limited to up to 27 Wumboji in a single message before overcrowding becomes a concern and the size is reduced back down to its original state.
While in Compact mode, emojis cannot become Wumbojis. This makes a bit of sense seeing as a compacted Wumboji is already what an emoji is.
Custom Server Emoji
In addition to the basic, out-of-the-box stable of emojis you’re automatically gifted with, you can also easily add custom emojis to your server. You can also sync up with a few of your favorite streamers in order to use their emojis as well.
If you happen to be subscribed to any partnered Twitch streamers who’ve got their own stable of customized emojis enabled for their channel, you can use them on your server. All you need to do is sync up your Twitch account with Discord. This will allow you to use their custom emojis on any server you decide to join. Awesome huh?
Of course, you can always upload your own custom emojis explicitly tailored to your server to use as well. In order to do this you’ll need to:
- Head to the “Server Settings” tab. You do this by clicking on the server name and selecting the tab from the drop-down options provided.
- Once there, you’ll find the Emoji tab. Click it to open up the Server Emoji dialog.
It’s here where you’ll be greeted with the “Don’t let your memes be dreams” text. So long as you’re the server owner or have been granted the necessary Manage Emoji permission, you’ll have full access to the Emoji tab.
- From here, click the upload button off to the right and you can upload your own personalized emoji stash to the server.
You’re limited to 50 emoji uploads per server and those particular emojis will only work for the server of which they’ve been uploaded. If you try to use an emoji that was uploaded to a different server, you’ll be greeted with a message from Clyde:
Emojis can only be used on the server they were created for. Unless, of course, you’re paying for Discord Nitro.
In the above screenshots, the former is for when you attempt to type in the emoji by name, and the latter message is received if chosen from the picker list. You may notice that some servers will show both the grayed-out emojis as well as the universal ones. Just keep in mind that manually uploaded emojis are server-specific but those that are integrated are not. This includes any emojis you sync through Twitch.
Emojis are resized to 32×32 pixels and the upload should not exceed 128×128 pixels in order to obtain optimal resolution. The emoji list is auto-sorted for custom emojis by the server so you should not have any trouble finding the emoji you’re looking for.
Reacting to Messages With Emojis
Sometimes less is more when it comes to a message response. It’s often possible that you can create a better emotional show of support by opting for a reaction as opposed to words or a manually placed emoji. Discord provides you the option for a quick response via the “Add Reactions” button.
To use a reaction, click on the +smiley to the right of the message. It will be located next to the menu icon.
Just click it and you’ll be provided with your full stable of emotes to choose from in order to quickly get your response across.
If one reaction isn’t enough, you can add more as the “Add Reactions” button will now be located off to the right of your current reaction emotes.
Similar to the rapid-fire treatment above, you can hold down the Shift key while selecting emotes to keep the window open.
You also have the option of removing a reaction if you so choose. Just click on the box of the sent reaction and it will simply vanish. Your most commonly used emojis are also saved for quick reaction purposes. Right-click the message you’re looking to react to and all of your favorites are right there for ease of use.
If you want to find out what other members think of your emoji right-click the message, in the dialog box there is the “Reactions” tab. Click on it and it will open a menu detailing who gave which reaction emote.
Adding Emojis to Channel’s Description & Nicknames
Maybe you’d like to add a few emojis to some of your channels or even your nickname. The process is a rather easy one and there are two ways I know how to go about it. The more technical way is to type in the full ID name of the emoji (:emojiname:) directly.
An example would be typing in :flame: to produce the 🔥 emoji.
This is a language known as Unicode. There are likely quite a few sites online to choose from that can help you find all the emojis you’ll ever need. A lot of users choose to use the site getemoji.com. You can also learn you a little bit of Unicode by using http://www.unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html if you’d prefer.
From the site, all you’ll need to do is locate the emoji you want to use, highlight it, right-click and choose copy. Then paste it into Discord where ever you need it. If you’re using the Unicode site, when choosing the emoji to use, make sure you copy it from the Browser column.
It’s as simple as that.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get permission to upload emojis?
Unfortunately, only the server owner can add emojis. Assuming this isn’t an option for you, you can always create the emoji and send the information to the server owner to have it added.
A Discord server can be heavily customized to serve the needs of its members. One way to do this is by adding custom emoji. You can do this on the Discord website, or in the desktop or mobile app.
A standard Discord server has a limited number of custom emoji slots. If you want to add more, you’ll need Discord Nitro subscribers to boost your server and add additional slots (up to 250).
RELATED:What Is Discord Nitro, and Is It Worth Paying For?
Add or Remove Discord Custom Emoji on Windows or Mac
To add custom Discord emoji, you’ll need to be a server administrator or owner. You can add them from your Discord server settings menu on the Discord website or the desktop app for Windows or Mac. The steps below will on both platforms.
To start, open your Discord server and click the downward arrow next to the server name in the channel list on the left. In the drop-down menu, click “Server Settings.”
In the “Emoji” tab in the Discord server’s settings menu, you’ll be able to add custom emoji. A list of requirements for custom emoji is at the top, including a 256 KB file size limit, and a minimum of two characters for emoji names.
Standard Discord servers can add 50 standard emoji, as well as an additional 50 animated emoji GIFs. To add more, you’ll need Discord Nitro subscribers to “boost” your server.
To add a custom emoji (standard or animated), click “Upload Emoji.”
You’ll need to upload the file from your computer’s local storage. If the file meets Discord’s requirements, it will be added to your “Emoji” or “Animated Emoji” lists.
Each custom emoji has an alias tag, which, by default, uses the file name of the uploaded emoji image. This is the tag you’ll use to add an emoji to a message.
You can replace the default alias by clicking the “Alias” box next to a custom emoji, and then typing a new name.
Once it’s uploaded, a custom emoji can be used immediately in your Discord server.
If you want to remove it later, just hover over it in the “Emoji” list, and then click the red “X” at the top right to delete it.
The emoji will be immediately removed from your server.
Add or Remove Discord Custom Emoji on Android, iPhone, and iPad
Like the Windows and Mac Discord apps, server owners who use Discord on Android, iPhone, or iPad devices can upload custom emoji from the same menu. As the interface for Discord is similar across all platforms, these steps should work on both Apple and Android devices.
To start, open the Discord app on your phone or tablet to access your server. In an open channel, tap the hamburger menu at the top left.
This opens the channel and server list for Discord. Tap the three-dot menu next to the server name in the channel list to proceed.
In the pop-up Discord server menu, tap “Settings” to access your server settings.
Tap “Emoji” in the “Server Settings” menu to access your custom emoji settings.
Like the PC and Mac apps, a list of requirements for emoji will appear in the “Emoji” menu.
To begin uploading a standard or animated emoji that matches these requirements, tap “Upload Emoji.”
Select the custom emoji file you want to upload. Tap “Crop” if you want to crop the image or “Upload” if you don’t.
Once the emoji file is uploaded, tap it to replace its alias tag. This takes you to the settings area for that emoji.
In the “Alias” box, type a new name. This will be the tag used to add the emoji to messages (for instance, “:howtogeek:” for a How-To Geek emoji).
Tap the Save icon at the bottom right to save your new tag.
Changes to a custom emoji’s alias will be applied immediately. If you want to delete the emoji, tap the three-dot menu at the top right of the custom emoji settings.
In the drop-down menu, tap “Delete Emoji.”
This custom emoji will then be removed from your server emoji list.
Using Custom Emoji on Discord
Once you’ve added a custom emoji to your Discord server, it will appear in the emoji pop-up list when you click the emoji icon on the chat message bar.
In the pop-up emoji menu, your server’s custom emoji will be listed under their own category. Click or tap any of the custom emoji listed there to add it to your message.
A similar pop-up will appear when you tap the emoji icon on the message bar in the Discord mobile app. Your available emoji will appear under the server’s custom emoji category.
Alternatively, you can type the alias tag for your custom emoji in your message to send it. If the alias tag matches an emoji you can use, it will appear above the message bar as you type. Then, you can just tap it to autofill the tag and display the emoji.
A similar pop-up will appear if you type a custom emoji’s alias tag in the Discord mobile app. Click or tap the autocompleted alias tag above your message to insert the emoji in your message.
These emoji can only be used on your own Discord server unless you’re a Discord Nitro subscriber. If you are, you can use custom server emoji on any other Discord server, as long as the “Use External Emoji” setting is enabled in that Discord server’s channel permissions.
