First introduced

Java Edition Alpha v1.0.16_02
PE Alpha 0.16.0 (PE Alpha 0.16.0 build 1)

Sends a private message to one or more players. "w" or "msg" can also be used.

  • Java Edition
tell <player> <message ...>
msg <player> <message ...>
w <player> <message ...>
  • Bedrock Edition
tell <target: target> <message: message>
msg <target: target> <message: message>
w <target: target> <message: message>
player (BE: target: target)
Specifies the targeted player(s) to send the private message to. Must be a player name (or a target selector, but only if the user is an operator).
message(BE: message: message)
Specifies the message to send. May include spaces as well as target selectors if run from the server console. Target selectors may also be used by running the command via /execute.
Fails if the arguments are not specified correctly, if any target selectors in either argument fail to resolve to at least one online player, or if a named player is not online.
On success, only the targeted player(s) see the private message in their chat. If a multi-person target selector (e.g., @a) is used in message, the list of names is formatted as "name1 and name2" for two players, or "name1, name2, ... and nameN" for N players. Target selectors in the message are not recognized in Pocket Edition.
To privately tell Alice to start the mission: tell Alice Start the mission!
