EditHow to Use Built In Emoji on the Samsung Galaxy S4

That's right, your Samsung GS4 has a full range of built in Emojis - but they're hidden.

Not very many people know it, but with the release of Android 4.2.2, or 4.4 Kit Kat, an Emoji Keyboard is hidden in every Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, and Note III. This is because Samsung updated their operating system to support these changes to Android. That means anyone can access the hidden Emoji Keyboard built into their device, whether on Android or on Samsung's version of Android.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

To find out what version of the Android or Samsung operating system you're running, just go to 'Settings' -> 'More' -> 'About Device' -> 'Software Version'.

The Emoji Keyboard is easy to access, though using it outside of your messaging app and Facebook might require a little extra effort if you're on the S4. Many functions in Android don't always work the same in every app, and Emoji keyboards are no exception.

    Open your SMS App, then press and hold the microphone button, shown below.

How can I receive Emojis from an iPhone on my Galaxy S4?

I am able to send Emojis but whenever I receive one, it just shows up as a black box with a question mark. I'd like to be able to see iPhone emoji on my Galaxy S4

Your native SMS application cannot recognize some of the Emoji characters. If you check this article, you'll find more information about viewing, sending, and receiving Emojis on your phone.

Using Handcent SMS application may be not very convenient if you would still be receiving notifications from your native SMS. You can disable these notifications from your native SMS by going to Home screen > Apps > Settings > More > Application Manager > All tab > Open Messaging > Uncheck the "Show notification" option on the Messaging App info.

WHICH IS THE BEST EMOJI APP FOR SAMSUNG?

I don't want an app just for messages I want one just for Emoji

The best Emoji application for the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be the Emoji keyboard or the Emoji Plug in which can be downloaded from the application store or Google Playstore on your device for free.

Hi.how could I not be able to see Emoji?

I'm not able to see Emoji on my Galaxy s4..when my friend send them to me I see boxes..not only on messages, but on facebook, instagram.ect I only see boxes instead of Emoji. would you be kind enough to help me?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Android devices do not have the emoji fonts built in. You'll need to ask your friend which app they are using to send the emoji's. If he has an Android device as well, you will need to install the same messaging app, along with the emoji plugin in order to view them. If your friend is using an apple device, then you will need to root your phone and install the emoji fonts manually in order to see them.

Why does the EE defualt messaenger change all my SMS with Emoji's in to MMS?

If I send a message from default app with Emoji in changes to MMS, which I get charged for. When it was Jelly bean could have more than one default message app. With KitKat have to set one and still with the default messenger add an emoji then changes to MMS. Use handcent app it doesn't why? How can I solve this?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

It may be because the emoji app that you have has a lot of graphics and is not fully compatible with your device for SMS, that's why it's reading it as an MMS. This is most often the case for non-smartphones. Make sure that you download only the appropriate emoji apps so that you can avoid this kind of problems.

How can I view Emoji people with iPhone's send my Galaxy S5?

I have the app Go SMS Pro and I really like it but is there a decoder for iPhone Emoji I receive?

No, the iPhone has these Emojis standard on the device while the Galaxy devices do not have the decoder or Emojis standard on the device. The S5 will only be able to decode Emojis that are on the application or keyboard that you are using but if the Emoji is not in the application then the device will not recognize the Emoji.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

I use the Android Kit Kat keyboard which has alot of Emojis on it that the iPhone uses. This is the closest option that you can use in order to be able to decode all of the Emojis:

Here is the application you can download to your device:

Emoji help, Samsung Galaxy S4 phone

If you are trying to send/receive emoji's with your friend's Android smartphones, make sure they also have the same emoji plugin/keyboard app that you're using. Due to Android's lack of native emoji support, you and your friend's device will need to be on the same app in order to view each other's Emoji.

Did you know?

Did you know that Emoji is a Japanese term for ideograms used in Japanese electronic messages and webpages. This means that it is a pictograph, which literally means picture. If you hadn't noticed, most emoticons are based in Japanese culture, like a businessman bowing, meaning apologizing, and a ninja peeking and more.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Later, more icons were incorporated in unicode that allows them to be used elsewhere. Such phones, like Windows 7 and iPhone, allow them to access emoticons without having a Japanese operator. In April 2009, Emoji started to appear in email services like Gmail. Later, some SMS application for Android powered devices had plugins to support them. Apple Macintosh OS X, supports Emoji as of version 10.7, with Apple color typeface. About a decade ago, when IM applications started, many of us were excited to be using emoticons. Instead of typing what you want to express in a long sentence, you can convey your thoughts in one character, otherwise known as emoticons.

I want to have Emoji on my phone without making it the default keyboard?

I like the good keyboard a lot and I don't want to change it...but I would still like to be able to use Emojis without making my SMS and MMS

On Android devices you can either download the keyboard application to display Emojis or the full messaging application. There is no way that you can keep your keyboard and also use Emojis on them at this time.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

In order to be able to use Emojis you are going to either need to :

-Download the keyboard then make it your default keyboard for use

or

-Download a full messaging app that will allow you to keep your keyboard but lose your standard messaging application

App for downloading the messaging app being that you do not want to use the keyboard:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jb.gosms

This is because your device doesn't support them, or doesn't have them installed properly. Please visit our section on using iPhone style Emoji Keyboards in Samsung or Android.

Link and Sync Emoji Word application between FACEBOOK/GOOGLE/PLAYSTORE issue?

Played Emoji game first time via Facebook yesterday.. reached level 35 and Facebook app froze. Today I downloaded version to play on Galaxy 4S and I CANNOT get the two machines to Sync? Tried re-logging in and out of Facebook..Google Play.. PlayStore.. Hoping you can help or I will just play until I get my fill via my Facebook on my Laptop. Until then I won't even bother you about the keyboard

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Sorry to hear about your game difficulties. Unfortunately, different versions of apps often do not sync, and the two apps you're playing are different. You should be able to sync from your Android game, now that you have it installed, but may not be able to get Facebook to work properly. This is an issue with Facebook, and not your device. Good luck with the new game download.

I installed kitkat keyboard you provided a download link to, however, when I went to set it as the default keyboard a message popped up stating "This method can collect all of the text you enter, except passwords, including personal data and credit card numbers. It comes from the app KitKat Emoji Keyboard. Use anyway?" Hmm..not good! Doubt I'll be using this app!

I understand your security concerns. The problem is that any keyboard app, because of the function it needs to perform, will need these permissions and thus generate the same warning upon installation. I don't know if this will help, but if this app were stealing credit card information, for example, it wouldn't last long before it received abuse complaints and was removed from the app store. It is not a guarantee but it does provide a certain degree of security.

The hidden Emoji keyboard only works on the Galaxy S4, S5, and Note III, which must be running Android 4.2.2, or 4.4 Kit Kat, or the latest Samsung update.

To access it, open any text app, like your email or SMS, and then press and hold the microphone button. This will bring up a sub-menu, where you can press the 'smiley' face to use the Emojis.

Please let us know if this helps.
