    Seriously. This is actually a huge deal for a lot of people. Makes it real hard to creat and inclusive and supportive space.

  • Bazzi

    Yo Discord, what gives? Having this on 🖥️ and not 📱 is worse than not having it at all. The yellow skin is mad problematic, especially when one is forced to use it for some replies and not others!

    The original request was made over two years ago. Come on! This issue affects a lot of your users, it's annoying and disappointing. Especially in comparison to how Slack handles emoji skin tones.

    Mobile should not be a second-class citizen in 2021.

    Suggested definition of done:

    1. Skin-tone preference (and emoji favorites) should be saved to the user's profile and sync to all clients.
    2. The preferred skin-tone should be honored regardless of which client is used.
    3. When multiple people react with different skin-tone variants of the same emoji, they should be collapsed into a single count, but still show each distinct skin-tone in the set. (Important for voting by reaction.)
    4. When clicking on an existing emoji, the user's preferred skin-tone variant should be added to the displayed set as well as incrementing the count.

    This should have been implemented 2 years ago.

    The only solution I've found is to use your phone's own emojis to use the skin tone feature. The emoji will default to Discord's style with the skin tone you chose when the message is sent. However I agree that this needs to be implemented into Discord mobile so we don't have to rely on our phone's own

    I agree, It is so annoying that on PC I can change the Skin Tones, but on my Note 20, Nope, stuck with the dang default Yellow... Why is it so hard to just add it...
