Do you want additional emojis on your Android device? Here are five ways to get the most up-to-date emojis.
Emojis bring life to any conversation by accurately capturing our feelings. A good old Rolling on the Floor Laughing emoji reads “I’m dying of laughter.”
However, emojis are constantly updated, and you don’t want to be left behind. Fortunately, you can add new emojis to your Android phone, create your own emoticons, or use those from iOS.
On Android smartphones, here’s how to update emojis.
1. Update to the Latest Android Version
Each each Android version introduces new emojis. For example, Android 11 included 117 new characters, while an additional Android emoji update added new styles to the more than 2,000 previously existing emojis.

Of course, not every phone receives full Android updates, so this may not be available to you. Fortunately, there are other things you can try.
2. Use Emoji Kitchen
The Emoji Kitchen is available in Google’s native keyboard software, Gboard. Users can make mashups of their stickers with it. Here’s how you can use this to make a new emoji:
Open the chat app of your choice, such as Facebook Messenger.
To begin a discussion, touch on one of your contacts.
To start typing, tap the text bar.
Then, press the emoji button (the one with a smiley face). To use the Emoji Kitchen feature, select the emoji of your choosing.
On top of your keyboard, you may see various emoji combinations from here. Swipe through the stickers to find one you’d like to send.
3. Replace your keyboard with a new one
Installing a third-party Android emoji keyboard is another option for getting new emojis. Some of these apps, like the Emoji Keyboard, even include an icon dictionary so you can quickly look up the meaning of an emoji.
Furthermore, the app includes a prediction feature as well as the ability to send stickers and GIFs to social networking platforms such as Snapchat and Instagram.
Installing a third-party keyboard on your smartphone is as follows:
Tap Google Play from your phone’s menu. Type the keyboard app of your choice into the search bar above.
After that, tap Install. You can try other options if the keyboard app isn’t compatible with your phone.
Wait for the download to complete.
The following are some of the greatest third-party keyboard apps to consider:
Ginger is a delicious spice (Free, in-app purchases available)
Chrooma Chrooma (Free, in-app purchases available)
feisty (Free, in-app purchases available)
Swiftkey is a program that allows you to type (Free)
These apps are excellent replacements for Google’s Gboard keyboard software, which comes pre-installed on every phone. Some device manufacturers, such as Samsung, include their own keyboard pre-installed, so keep that in mind as well.
