Google is making Gboard more useful than ever. This time with a little help from AI. Now, instead of requiring you to manually search for the perfect GIF, emoji, or sticker, Gboard will recommend the visual elements guaranteed to liven up your boring conversations.

Google is making Gboard more useful than ever. This time with a little help from AI. Now, instead of requiring you to manually search for the perfect GIF, emoji, or sticker, Gboard will recommend the visual elements guaranteed to liven up your boring conversations.

Gboard Suggests GIFs, Emojis, and Stickers

GIFs, emojis, and stickers have become an essential part of online discourse. I’m partial to GIFs myself, but others prefer adding emojis or stickers to their messages to add a personal touch. The problem is finding just the right one.

This should be less of an issue for Gboard users in the future, as Google has taught Gboard to do the heavy lifting for you. As detailed on The Keyword, “Gboard will use AI to suggest GIFs, emoji and stickers to you related to your conversation.”

All you need to do is type your message as usual. When Gboard spots an opportunity for you to add a GIF, emoji, or sticker, the GIF icon will flash. Click on it, and you’ll be presented with a selection of GIFs, emojis, and stickers Google thinks fit the conversation.

This whole process is handled on your device, which means it’s faster and more private than it would be if Gboard was communicating with Google’s servers. And just because this feature exists doesn’t mean you can’t still conduct a manual search.

Gboard for Android vs. Apple’s iOS Keyboard

The new recommendations have already been added to Gboard for Android. However, Google made no mention of if and when they’ll be added to Gboard for iOS. Still, Apple’s default keyboard already does something similar, suggesting emojis after certain words.

Whether you’re new to Gboard or a seasoned user, you may be interested in these things you didn’t know Gboard could do. And since that article was published Gboard has learned how to turn your selfies into stickers, and how to understand morse code.

Apple is about to release the public beta version of iOS 12.1. And before everybody freaks out, the company announced that this update will feature new emojis — best feature update ever.

In other words, Apple is releasing its own take on Unicode 11.0 emojis. Other devices and major services will soon all support the same emojis, but with a different design.

Apple already previewed some of these new emoji designs back in July for World Emoji Day. So here’s what you should expect.

Curly hair, grey hair, bald people, red hair…

As always, you’ll be able to find five skin colors in addition to yellow, and all characters come in male and female variants. The Unicode 11.0 specs said that vendors should add "curly hair" emojis. But it looks like Apple concluded "alright let's put a ’stache on that face!"

As for everything else, you’ll find a new emojis for outdoor accessories, such as luggage, compass and hiking shoes. On the food front, you’ll find bagels, salt, cupcakes, leafy greens, mango, moon cake, etc.

And when it comes to animals, there’s finally a mosquito emoji as well as new llama, swan, raccoon, kangaroo, lobster, parrot and peacock emojis.

Every time I’ve written about emojis, the number one comment has always been about red hair. It took a few years but red hair people, the Unicode consortium has finally heard you!

How to Create and Use Memoji on Your iPhone

Unlocking your iPhone isn’t the only function of the True Depth camera found on the iPhone X (and newer devices). In 2017, Apple announced animated emoji, or Animoji, would launch alongside iOS 11. This technology used the camera to bring some familiar emoji to life with expressions and movements. Now as a part of the iOS 12 update, Memoji takes this to a whole new level by allowing you to create your own animated emoji. Not only is it a chance to create a cartoony likeness of yourself, but you can bring it to life just like regular animoji. So…

Unlocking your iPhone isn’t the only function of the True Depth camera found on the iPhone X (and newer devices). In 2017, Apple announced animated emoji, or Animoji, would launch alongside iOS 11. This technology used the camera to bring some familiar emoji to life with expressions and movements.

Now as a part of the iOS 12 update, Memoji takes this to a whole new level by allowing you to create your own animated emoji. Not only is it a chance to create a cartoony likeness of yourself, but you can bring it to life just like regular animoji.

So let’s take a look at how it works!

Which iPhones Support Memoji?

If you can use Animoji, you can also use Memoji. Any iPhone equipped with a True Depth camera, starting with the iPhone X, can use the technology. Newer iPhones that also support Memoji include the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr announced at Apple’s 2018 event.

These devices must have iOS 12 installed. Users who don’t have an iPhone with a True Depth camera can still view your Memoji, just like Animoji in iOS 11. And even though the animated messages are part of iMessage, even “green bubble friends” with Android devices can receive your recordings as a video.

iPhone X Animoji

How to Create Your Memoji

You create Memoji in the same place you can record Animoji messages: via the iMessage apps menu. Open up the Messages app, then tap the Apps icon next to the text box. Scroll through the list of icons that shows up till you find Animoji (it looks like a monkey, of course).

Activate Animoji/Memoji

To add a new Memoji, you’ll want to tap the Plus button. If it’s your first time doing this, you’ll get a pop-up pointing it out. Otherwise, simply scroll all the way to the left and tap the button. Here, you’ll be able to create your likeness.

As you make changes, you’ll see your adjustments appear in real-time. Try your new face on for size by pulling a few faces. There are 10 separate categories, some of which contain several options within them.

  • Skin: Including skin color, with a slider for fine-tuning, and freckles. You can even choose gray skin, a nice Shrek green, or red for when you’re feeling particularly angry.
  • Hairstyle: These aren’t separated by gender, which goes for every option in the Memoji creator. You can pick from natural color shades, and add highlights too if you want.
  • Head Shape: With options for aging and chin size.
  • Eyes: Basic eye color and eyelash adjustment.
  • Brows: You can adjust this separately from your hair color, with many shapes and different thicknesses to choose from.
  • Nose and Lips: Three sizes of nose, with different lip colors and shapes (though not a huge variety to choose from).
  • Ears: Three sizes of ears, with options for adding one set of earrings (only in both ears), and adjusting the color of your jewelry.
  • Facial Hair: Including sideburns, lots of beards, stubble, and mustaches, plus the option of natural or not-so-natural coloring.
  • Eyewear: You have plenty of glasses styles to choose from. You can adjust the frame color and lens color too (and adjust opacity, so you can still see your eyes underneath if you want).
  • Headwear: All manner of hats, beanies, and religious garments in the usual shades.

You can flick back and forth to tweak your creation until you’re happy, then tap Done in the top-right corner of the screen. Your Memoji will be saved to the list, under the same Animoji button you tapped prior to creating it.

Edit, Duplicate, and Create More Memojis

You can create as many Memojis as you like. Simply revisit the menu and tap the Plus button once more for another. Find an old Memoji and tap the ellipsis button in the bottom-left corner to bring up three options: Edit, Duplicate, and Delete.

Tap Duplicate to quickly clone your Memoji, then Edit it to make small adjustments. Try adding a version of yourself wearing sunglasses, or different eyewear, and other changes. Remember: there’s no need to be completely true to life here. Apple added this feature for fun, so experiment and see what you can come up with.

How to Send Animated Memoji Messages

With an arsenal of likenesses at your disposal, you can send Memoji messages in the same way you send regular Animoji. Launch Messages then tap the App button. Find the Animoji “monkey” button then choose your likeness.

Record Memoji

You can tap the Record button once to record a message of up to 30 seconds long, then tap it again to finish your recording. You can also hold down the Record button for the length of your recording if you’d rather.

Once you’ve recorded a message, you can scroll left and right and use it on other Memoji or Animoji. Keep in mind that sound is included on the recording. You can also send a single, still image of you making a particular expression.

Make a face, then simply tap on your likeness. The image adds to the text box, where you can type a comment below and hit Send. This will work with both iMessage and Android users, since the likeness sends as an image. Send Still Memoji

Another way to use your new Memoji is via the use of iMessage stickers. These will only work via iMessage, with other iPhone users. Strike a pose you’re happy with, then tap and hold your likeness. Drag your face up into the message body and release over a message or image you’d like to apply the sticker to.

You can pinch with a free finger to enlarge or shrink the sticker if you want.

Use Memoji Stickers

Memojis Are Like Animojis, But Better

Unfortunately, there’s no way to add your likeness to the regular emoji keyboard, which probably has more to do with standardization than anything. It would be nice to have a few predetermined expressions applied to your likeness for use in everyday conversation, though.

Of course, you’ll probably get a lot more use out of your Truth Depth camera if you use it to unlock your iPhone with Face ID instead.

You can now create a set of stickers to suit all occasions using Gboard. The new feature, called Mini Stickers, turns you into an animated character, and all from a single selfie. No, this isn’t very original (Bitmoji, anyone?) but it is kinda cool.

Google Creates a Mini Version of You

Google’s new Mini Stickers use a combination of machine learning, neural networks, and illustrations by an artist to turn you into a cartoon character. Or avatar, or emoji, or whatever else you want to call it. And all from nothing more than a selfie.

Mini Stickers create a virtual you based on your visual characteristics. Which means your skin tone, face shape, hairstyle, eye color, and more besides. And if you’re not happy with Google’s interpretation of you then you can even customize it.

How to Use Google’s Mini Stickers

All you need to do is open Gboard for Android or Gboard for iOS, and tap the Emoji button. Then, select the Stickers icon, and then tap on the Mini icon. Finally, hit the Create button, take a selfie, and watch Google work its magic.

At this point you can accept Google’s creation or customize your Mini. You’ll then have a selection of stickers to use, with both a “Bold” and “Sweet” flavor of you to choose from. And you can send them to everyone you know for no apparent reason.

Mini Stickers First Appeared on Allo

This feature has been ported across from Google Allo, where it was dubbed Selfie Stickers. While Google Allo isn’t disappearing, Google has paused development on the messaging app. Which is why its best features are being introduced to other Google apps.

If you’re intrigued by Allo you should read our beginner’s guide to Allo and Duo. And if you’re using Gboard, you should see why we described it as the best iPhone keyboard yet or discover things you didn’t know Gboard for Android could do.

3 Useful Emoji Extensions for Chrome

28,000 years after the Ancient Egyptians first started writing with beautiful image-based hieroglyphs, we’ve circled back and now communicate using pictures of eggplants and colorful hearts. No, it’s not quite as impressive, but it is equally functional (even if lots of people don’t know emojis true meaning). Emojis are so functional, in fact, that Facebook Messenger sees five billion emojis sent every day on the platform. The global total across all apps is probably several times that number.

28,000 years after the Ancient Egyptians first started writing with beautiful image-based hieroglyphs, we’ve circled back and now communicate using pictures of eggplants and colorful hearts.

No, it’s not quite as impressive, but it is equally functional (even if lots of people don’t know emojis true meaning). Emojis are so functional, in fact, that Facebook Messenger sees five billion emojis sent every day on the platform. The global total across all apps is probably several times that number.

Chrome has been testing an emoji keyboard for a long time. You can access it and play with it right now if you wish. But be warned—it’s still pretty barebones. If you’re itching for a better way to send and view emojis on Chrome, it makes more sense to use one of these emoji extensions instead.

1. Emoji2Go

The Emoji2Go extension lets you enter emojis in any text field anywhere on the web. It includes a search feature and tabbed emoji browsing. It can also pop out into its own window, making it a useful way to use emoji in other non-web apps as well.

2. Chromoji

Chromoji offers one long scrollable list of emojis. Although it does have a search function, the long list makes it less easy to find the emoji you want quickly.

However, it does include four different styles of emojis (Twitter, EmojiOne, Apple, and Google), so it deserves a mention.

3. Emoji Swap

Not all apps, operating systems, and websites can read all the emoji icons. Design inconsistencies or old hardware could be the cause of the problem. The upshot is that’ll you see those annoying small empty boxes everywhere.

Emoji Swap is the solution. It will convert every emoji character in Chrome into the single, unified EmojiOne style.

Snapchat is full of hidden quirks that you’ll only start to notice after you have been using the app for a while.

One of these quirks is the presence of seemingly random emojis. You’ll find them next to your friends’ names, celebrities’ names, and even in your Snapchat Stories.

But what do the Snapchat emojis mean?

Snapchat Friend Emojis

Snapchat uses 14 different emojis to categorize your friends. Each emoji denotes a particular aspect of the relationship between you and the other person; it’s like a secret Snapchat emoji code.

1. Yellow Heart

Wondering what the yellow heart emoji means on Snapchat? It’s a simple one: you and the other person are best friends. Well, best friends on Snapchat. You have sent the most snaps to them, and they have sent the most snaps to you.

2. Red Heart

You’ll see the red heart emoji next to another Snapchatter’s name if you have been best friends on the service for the last two weeks consecutively (i.e., you have sent the most snaps to them, and they have sent the most to you).

3. Pink Hearts

Taking this to its logical conclusion, you will see an emoji of two pink hearts if you have been best friends for the last two months consecutively.

4. Gold Star

Snapchat also uses a gold star emoji. You will see it next to a friend’s name when someone has replayed one of their snaps in the last 24 hours.

5. Sunglasses Face

The sunglasses emoji on Snapchat means that you and the other person share a common good friend; you both send a lot of Snaps to a mutual connection. It does not mean that you share the same best friend.

6. Grimacing Face

The grimacing face emoji means that you do share the same best friend. You send the most snaps to the same person as they do. Awkward.

(Also, spare a thought for the poor person who receives all those snaps every day. Perhaps you should back off a bit!).

7. Smirking Face

The smirking face emoji is like the opposite of the grimacing face. It shows that you’re their best friend (they send you more snaps than anyone else), but they are not your best friend (you send more snaps to other people than you do to them). Also pretty awkward, we’re sure you’ll agree.

8. Smiling Face

Ah, this one is a bit more pleasant. A smiling face emoji on Snapchat means that you’re good friends with each other. Not best friends, but good friends. You both send each other lots of snaps on a regular basis.

9. Baby Face

Have you just become friends with a new person on Snapchat? Then you’ll see the baby face emoji alongside the person’s name. It will automatically disappear after a few weeks.

10. Fire

Snapchat uses three emojis that relate to your Snapstreak. If you see the fire emoji, it means you and the other person have snapped each other on three consecutive days. You both need to have sent a snap for the emoji to appear.

The number next to the emoji denotes how many days you have been on a Snapstreak.

Note: A Snapstreak only applies to snaps sent. Chatting with each other via text does not count towards your streak.

snapchat streak emoji

11. One Hundred

The red one hundred emoji will appear when you and your friend have completed a 100-day Snapstreak. It’s a great way to improve your Snapchat score.

Frankly, if you ever manage to get to 100 consecutive days of snapping, you deserve something more than an emoji. But alas, it’s not our decision.

12. Hourglass

The hourglass emoji will appear next to person’s name if your Snapstreak with them is about to end. It will pop up a few hours before your time runs out.

It’s pretty useful. After all, you wouldn’t want to jeopardize that glorious 100 emoji, would you?

13. Birthday Cake

It doesn’t take a genius to work this one out. You will see the birthday cake emoji alongside a friend’s name when it’s their birthday. Why not send them a snap to celebrate.

Note: This emoji only pops up if the person has added their birthday to Snapchat.

14. Zodiac Signs

If the person has added their birthday, the corresponding zodiac sign emoji will appear alongside their name. The zodiac signs are purple with a white emblem.

Verified Accounts

snapchat emoji celebrities

Some verified accounts have their own emoji. When the account posts a story, you will see the emoji alongside the account name so you know it’s official.

The list of verified Snapchat accounts is in a constant state of flux, but some of the most popular verified story emojis include:

  • Bicep: Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Blond Man: Diplo
  • Cactus: Jared Leto
  • Cake: Steve Aoki
  • Cherry: Demi Lovato
  • Crown: Kylie Jenner
  • DVD: David Guetta
  • Purple Heart Decoration: Selena Gomez
  • Praying Hands: Justin Bieber
  • Checkered Flag: Lewis Hamilton
  • Up Arrow: One Direction
  • USA Flag: Hilary Clinton

Relationship Emojis on Snapchat

Snapchatters have started using an emoji code to display their relationship status on their profile and in their stories. Much like the early days of hashtags on Twitter, the relationship emojis are not supported by Snapchat itself. Yet.

Either way, it’s important to know what the relationship emojis denote. You will see them a lot.

1. Blue Circle

The person is single. Remember, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are looking. You should use the same etiquette as you would use when looking for a date on Facebook.

2. Pineapple

The Snapchat equivalent of Facebook’s “It’s Complicated” status.

3. Red Circle

The person is open to propositions, but it not ready to commit to a long-term relationship.

4. Cherry

You’ll see the cherry emoji next to people who are in a relationship and happy.

5. Apple

The apple emoji on Snapchat means that the user is engaged and will soon be married.

6. Banana

The person is married.

7. Avocado

An avocado means the person thinks they are the “better half” in their relationship. You can take that to mean what you will.

snapchat fruit

8. Strawberry

The person is looking for the right person to spend their life with, but cannot find them. They have our sympathy.

9. Lemon

A lemon signifies a person who is in a relationship but who is unhappy and wants to be single.

10. Chestnut

The chestnut emoji implies that the person wants to get married to their long-term partner but is not yet engaged.

Don’t Forget About Snapchat Stickers and Filters

You should not confuse the emoji we’ve explained in this article with Snapchat’s filters and stickers.

You can add stickers to a story to convey more themes and emotions. There are even creator-made stickers that you can add in packs.

Snapchat also supplies users with hundreds of filters. You can use them in your stories to inject some additional personality. The list of filters, lenses, and geo-filters changes regularly (and you can even unlock hidden Snapchat filters). However, we’ve explained some of the most common ones in our complete list of Snapchat filters.
