How to Put Emojis in your Name on Discord

Emojis seem to be everywhere in Discord. They’re how you react to messages, are automatically converted from emoticons, and often appear in your friend’s custom statuses. Something that not every Discord user knows, is that you can even put emojis to your name.

Emojis are great way to add some personalization to your username and help you stand out amongst other members of the server. How you add them can be a little tricky on Windows, but doing it on mobile is a breeze.

In this article, we’ll show you how to put emojis in your Discord username on your Windows PC and in the Android / iOS mobile app.
