If you love talking to your friends online, chances are that you love emojis and can't stop using them. At least that's the case for everyone on Discord!
It isn't surprising to see that the community has fallen in love with Discord animated emojis. These can be crafted and used in ways that haven't been done before.
That's why it makes sense for businesses, especially in the gaming industry, to push the use of Discord animated emojis due to its popularity.
However, know their limitations before you use them. For example, only 50 animated Discord emojis are allowed per server, and a custom Discord animated emoji should be a particular size. Other than these issues, the sky is the limit to what you can do with an animated emoticon on Discord.
Note: If you want to add animated emojis to videos, you should definitely try Wondershare Filmora video editor, which features lots of animated emojis.
Part 1: How to Get Animated Emojis with Discord Nitro?
Discord Nitro is the subscription-based, super-powered version of Discord that allows users to access various paid features that you won't get with the regular Discord account. The monthly subscription costs $4.99 only.
Nitro supports all types of emoticons, including Discords animated emojis, at no additional cost. You won't even see the option for using these if you aren't paid Nitro subscriber.
So once you've subscribed to Nitro, you can use a shortcode within chat such as ': grinning' or click the emoji icon to the right side of the designated chatbox to use the animated Discord emojis.
Select your desired animated Discord emoji from the popup window that shows animated emojis available to your account. Standard users will only see the regular emojis in this section.

Here are several ways to get Discord animated emojis and add them to the Discord server without going Nitro:

Emoji.gg is a simple website that provides a range of animated Discord emojis for free.
The itinerary is labelled by category, but you can also download the best ones together as a pack.
Emoji.gg can connect directly with Discord, allowing users to use their preferred animated Discord emoji directly from their site. You can also use this website to create custom animated Discord emojis using the Maker option.
This is another excellent website that will let you download animated Discord emojis.
They have a massive database of Discords animated emojis listed in alphabetic order. The website's user interface makes navigation easy, so you can find the perfect emoticon from the thousands in their database.
You will have to click the download button to download them from the website. Though to use the animated Discord emojis, they must be uploaded to Discord separately.
Emojis have become a part of everyday communication and popular culture at large.
