You know that cute little tongue blep your dog makes? We made Custom Emojis so you can upload their expressions and other personalized emotes to your Discord Server.
What this article covers:
Adding a Custom Emoji
Every server by default can add up to 50 custom emojis that any active server members can use within the server. If any user is a Nitro subscriber, they’ll be able to use the custom emojis from any server anywhere in Discord where emojis can be used!
How to upload custom emojis
- To upload custom emojis, choose the server where you would like to add custom emojis.
- Then, head into your Server Settings by selecting the drop-down menu located next to the server name.
- Once redirected, choose the Emoji tab to and press Upload Emoji to upload a custom emoji.
Keep in mind:
- Emoji names must be at least 2 characters long and can only contain alphanumeric characters and underscores
- Emojis must be under 256KB in size
Any user who is an active member of a server is able to use all uploaded custom emoji within that server, and any users who have a Nitro subscription will be able to use the server’s custom emojis anywhere on Discord where emojis can be used.
Animated Custom Emojis
In addition to the 50 static custom emojis, if you have Nitro or Nitro Basic you'll have an extra 50 slots available for animated ones too! Sometimes, just typing out 😓 😤 isn't enough to fully express your final exam grind (which btw, you're going to ace). With animated custom emojis, Nelly feels the heat too.
Note: The same naming and sizing requirements listed above apply to the animated custom emojis.
Twitch Sub Emotes
Subbed to some of your favorite streamers on Twitch? If the streamer has enabled their Twitch emotes for subs, you can use their custom emojis globally!
Although animated Twitch emotes will sync into your server, they will be static-only. If you would like to add animated Twitch emotes to your server, you will have to upload them manually.
For this to work, you'll need to:
- Sync your Twitch account with Discord
- Make sure you're currently subscribed to their channel
- Join the streamer's sub-enabled server
