In Minecraft, there are 16 of built-in Color Codes, as well as style codes, which you can use in chat or with in-game commands. These Minecraft Color Codes can be used to change the appearance of your text, customize your leather armour, assign team colors, and more. 

Minecraft Style Codes can be used to modify the appearance of your in-game text, using, for example, a "Bold" style to express your anger at a griefer. 

If you are looking for some Minecraft Color Codes, we've got you covered with the complete list of all codes, including style codes to use. 


How to use Minecraft Color Codes


A list of Minecraft Color Codes and Styles is great, but only if you know how to use them. 

To use the Minecraft Color Codes and Styles in this guide, you need to find the § symbol in your version of the Bedrock Edition, be it on Windows 10 PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or the Pocket Edition for mobile devices. 

The § symbol can be found on your digital keyboard but it is in different locations depending on which device you are playing from. For example, on iOS devices, it is found by holding down the "&" key, then selecting the symbol. For Android, it can be found above the "ABC" in the number keypad.

On PC, press and hold "Alt" followed by Numpad 0, 1, 6, and 7, then release.

In short, to use Minecraft Color Codes and Styles, you need to use §, followed by a code. There's chat code, Message of the Day (MOTD), Hex and Decimal codes to experiment with.
