Minecraft has always had emotes, but recently Mojang made some major updates to the system, including a dedicated emote wheel, server customization settings, and more.
With this new feature, players can now easily emote and share their expressions with everyone on the server, and if you prefer to keep your chat window clean, you can always turn off the notifications.
How to use Minecraft’s new emote features
What’s more, the developers have hidden some cool easter eggs in the new feature. To get started, once you’ve updated your game and spawned into the world, the game will show you instructions on how the new emote system works.
You’ll see a new emote wheel with four slots to which you can assign hotkeys, allowing you to emote without pausing your game.
For PC versions
For PC players, just press “B” on your keyboard, or if you’re playing on a console, press left on the directional pad of your controller to open the quick-emote box on the bottom left-hand side of your screen.
Organizing Minecraft emotes
By default, you get to use four emotes: Wave, Simple Clap, Follow Me, and Over There! If you want to change your emotes, simply head to the Dressing Room and you’ll find all of your earned emotes there. You can also unlock more emotes by completing achievements.
In the Dressing Room, you can also change which hotkeys correspond to which emote. And if you don’t like the new emote system, no worries. Players and server owners can mute the emote chat in World Settings.
Just a fraction of a bigger patch
With these new emote features system, players can express themselves in more creative and exciting ways than ever before in Minecraft!
