Discord lets you decorate your messages with emojis, gifs, and images, but some people do not know how to use Markdown’s formatting features to create even more unique effects. Using keyboard shortcuts on your computer or mobile device can change the way viewers and readers see the content you publish. Thus, you can add all sorts of formatting to your posts, such as bold, italics, code formatting, and spoiler tags. On that note, in this post, we will look at how to add a spoiler on Discord.

Spoiler tags are used to let others know that you are going to give information about something that someone does not want to see yet. Once this tag is added, another user will only see a grey or black box above the content. So, let’s see how to add a spoiler on Discord in your messages.

Discord’s developers have heard people’s cries and made it incredibly easy to add spoiler tags that block the writer’s content when they type it. So, thanks to the latest enhancements adding spoiler tags have become all the easier. You just need to:

- Mark your message with the mouse and click on the eye icon (pop-up).
- Now, check for the two vertical bars next to your text.
- Thereafter, press Enter on your computer’s keyboard to send the message with a spoiler tag.
