Emotes are little animations like dance, wave, and flip-off expressions to opponents. In my experience, emotes allow players to express themselves to one another without resorting to more traditional methods of communication like talking or typing. 

Major Takeaways

  • Emotes allow you to swiftly convey your message to teammates and other players, which can be crucial when working together.
  • You can easily find all kinds of emotes in the Interaction Menu>Style and Pick the right emote.
  • All in all, emotes are a fun and innovative method for players to express themselves and engage with others in GTA 5.

You must go to the Quick Menu, click “Style,” and click “Action.” It will make “Action” the default action for emotes. However, if players don’t like the default emote, they can change it in “Inventory,” another step in the Quick Menu.

Here’s how to quickly emote on Xbox:

  1. Open the interaction menu by pressing and holding the back button on your Xbox controller.
  2. Secondly, open the “Interaction” menu and select “Style” with the left stick or D-pad.
  3. The third step is choosing an action, such as waving, dancing, or flipping off the opponent.
  4. When you’ve decided on an emote, hit the “A” button on your controller to use it.
  5. Stop using the emote by hitting the controller’s “B” button.

Just stick to these simple steps as I did, and you will quickly understand these character actions on PlayStation:

  1. Press and hold down a button on the PlayStation controller to access the interaction menu.
  2. To select “Style” from the interaction menu, use the left stick or D-pad on your controller.
  3. Thirdly, you can choose an emote to execute through this Menu, like a wave or dance.
  4. Choose an emote to use, then hit the X button on your controller to use it.
  5. But You can stop the emote from happening by using the “Circle” button on your controller.

The following are instructions for quickly expressing yourself on PC:

  1. Press the “M” key on your keyboard to open the dialogue panel.
  2. Choose “Style” from the interaction menu using your mouse.
  3. Thirdly, you can choose an emote to execute through this Menu, like a wave or dance.
  4. Finally, you can make it happen by clicking on an emote with the mouse.
  5. However, using the “Esc” key on your keyboard will stop the emote.
