Let's get started! Follow these steps:

Steps to Add Spoiler Text in Discord:

First, open the chat where you want to send the spoiler message. To mark a part of your message as a spoiler, you can use the Markdown syntax. Surround the text you want to hide with two vertical bars (|). For example, type ||this is a spoiler|| to mark "this is a spoiler" as hidden text.

When you send the message, the text between the vertical bars will be hidden and will appear as a black box. Anyone who wants to read the spoiler text can click on it to reveal the content.

Alternatively, you can highlight the text and use the context menu. Highlight the part of the text you want to mark as a spoiler, right-click, and select "Mark as spoiler" from the context menu. This will automatically add the vertical bars around the selected text.

This feature is handy when discussing sensitive or spoiler-prone content in your Discord channels. Knowing how to hide text in Discord can keep conversations engaging and respectful.
