Did you know Android users can access free images like smileys, animals, shapes, and other emotion icons (called “emoji”) to use in texts and emails just by turning on their Emoji dictionary?
Add a little fun to your messages in a few easy steps:
Open the Settings app.
- Tap “Language and Input.”
- Tap the settings icon next to “Android keyboard.”
- Tap “Add-on dictionaries.”
- Tap “Emoji for English words.”
- Tap “Add New Keyboard.”
- Tap “Emoji.”
Now, whenever you’re typing an email or text message, you can use specific keywords to add emoji to your message. For example, typing “happy” or “smile” will add a smiley face emoji. Please note: If your Android device is running an older version of the operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich or earlier), there are several emoji apps available to download for free. Just search for “emoji” in the Google Play Store.
iPhone users, we’ll show you how to do the same thing in next week’s blog.
