Discord lets you decorate your messages with emojis, gifs, and images, but some people are completely unaware of how they can use Markdown formatting features to achieve more unique effects that can be a life savior. Using keyboard commands on your computer or mobile device can change the way viewers and readers see the content you publish.
This incredibly useful feature enables users to add all sorts of formatting to messages, including bold, italics, code formatting, and spoiler tags.

Let’s take a look at how you can add spoiler tags to messages in Discord.
Before going further what exactly is DISCORD?
