How to Whisper in Minecraft

How to Whisper in Minecraft

Before whispering in Minecraft, you need to enable the command mode from settings. Commands are nothing but a set of strings that can be used for a better experience in the Minecraft world. Remember commands are case sensitive. That means you have to put the exact same strings to give any command. So, how to enable command in the first place? Well, it is a very easy task. When you build a new world in Minecraft, you’ll see an option of enabling the cheats. You need to enable cheats in order to use the command mode. After enabling the cheats and once your world loads, you can give a command by pressing “C”. It will pull up the command bar where you will be able to write commands. You need to write a forward-slash (“/”) before writing each command. This is applicable for single player and a group, but it will not work with multiplayer mode.

How to Whisper in Minecraft Chat

How to Whisper in Minecraft Chat

At first, you need to open the command tab by pressing “C”. Then you need to type the whisper command, which is “/msg” or “/say” or “/tell”. It actually depends on the plugins. Now the whisper command is simple, but you need to try each of them in case any of them doesn’t work for you. Type as below: 

 /tell<space>the person’s name<space>the message

For example, you want to tell someone “How are you?” and his name is onfroy52. So, you have to write like this, 

/tell onfroy52 How are you?

Or, /say onfroy52 How are you?

Or, /msg onfroy52 How are you?

Well, sometimes, you just don’t want to whisper to individuals like that. Sometimes you want to chat with the whole Minecraft world and the people in it. In that case, you can use those shortcuts I’ve mentioned above. So, how does that work? 

  1. Let’s say you want to whisper to the nearest person to you. You want to tell him to come to you. To do that, you need to type as below:  

 /tell @p come to me

  1. Now, Let’s assume that you want to tell random persons in the Minecraft world to follow you. To do that, you need to write like this: 

/tell @r Follow Me

  1. Let’s say you want to communicate with all of the Minecraft players in your Minecraft world. You want to tell them “hello world”. To do that, type like this: 

/tell @a hello world

  1. You can also whisper to yourself. To do that, you need to type this: 

/tell @s Hi, this is me. 

As I’ve mentioned earlier, sometimes the “/tell” command might not work. In that case, you need to try the “/msg” and “/say” to send those whispers. 




Minecraft commands are very useful in-game and let you communicate with others in this game. However, there are a huge number of commands and learning all of them is quite a hectic job, I know. But all of these commands have a common pattern that is easy to learn. I hope now you know how to whisper to someone in Minecraft.
