By quoting text, you make a piece of text stand out in your Discord messages. There are options to quote specific text in a text string as well as to quote entire lines of text on this platform. We’ll show you how to do just that.
Please note that the steps for quoting text are the same for both Discord on desktop and Discord on mobile.

Quote in a text chain on Discord
To apply quote formatting to a specific piece of text in your text paragraph, use Discord’s backtick option.
Start by launching Discord on your device and find the text you want to quote.
Place the cursor at the beginning of the text to quote.
On your keyboard, press the backtick key to have a backtick symbol (`) added before the text. This key has a tilde sign (~) and is just above the Tab key on most keyboards.
If you’re on a mobile device, go to the symbols menu on your keyboard and tap the backtick sign.
After adding a backtick at the beginning of your text, place your cursor at the end of your text and add a backtick.
Right away, you’ll notice that Discord has formatted the text inside your backticks into quotes format.
You can now send your message as usual and the recipient will see the quote format. Enjoy!

To quote a single full line or multiple lines of text, use the “>” (greater than sign) on your keyboard. This will put it in a quote block format.
Open Discord and go to the message in which you want to quote one or more lines.
At the beginning of the line or lines you want to quote, type the following character and press Space:
Discord will apply quote formatting to the text to the right of the preceding character.
You can add more text to your quote block and it will use that formatting. When you’re done, send the message as usual.
And this is how you can quote a piece of text in your messages on the Discord platform.
