Chess.com invites you to try out different ways of expressing your failures with our three new features! We are rolling out more emoji with Quick chat, Emoji Board, and Reactions. We have designed these features to make your chess experience even more fun and to allow you to express yourself in a unique way on Chess.com!
Here is a list of the features we are releasing:
Quick Chat allows members to easily communicate with emoji during games. Premium members have the added option of using animated emoji to interact with their opponents!
You can use the Quick Chat feature by clicking on the chat bubble next to your clock when playing a game. Once you have selected the emoji you want to share, just click on it and your opponent will be able to see it.
Board Emoji allows members to add traditional chess notes, emotes, and animations right to the chess board. This new feature is perfect for those who stream, create videos, or want to add extra fun to their games.
Members can use this new functionality by holding down the “e” key and left clicking on one of the boxes in the table. After that, players can choose between annotations, animated emotes, or square markers, which play an animation once a piece lands on the square or the player removes it manually.
To celebrate the release of Board Emoji, Chess.com will be running a contest to reward the most creative content creators for using Board emoji on a video or blog post.
To participate, integrate the emoji function of the board into your live broadcasts, videos or blogs, then share your content on Twitter with #expressyourchess.
We will reward three winners in the stream and video categories and one winner in the blog category with $ 500 for a total of $ 2,000 in prizes!. Be sure to participate by submitting your tweet before 11:59 am PT on September 30!
Reactions allow members to add reactions to comments in forums, news, articles on Chess.com, and more! This feature is a great tool for providing feedback on other member’s posts and letting people know what you think of their content.
To use this feature, you just need to hover over a comment and click on the icon with a smiley face with a plus sign and select the desired reaction. All reactions will be visible to other members!
