Looking to increase engagement when texting your audience? Look no further! You can now easily send emojis to your audience.


Sending emojis when texting customers is very important. They can add emotion and personality to your messages, making them more relatable and engaging. Emojis help you connect with customers on a personal level and show them that you value their business. Plus, they make your texts look so fun and eye-catching!

Emojis are like a universal language that everyone can understand, no matter where they're from. They also let you showcase your brand's voice, so you can stay true to your unique identity. Just remember to use emojis wisely and consider your customer's preferences and the context of the conversation. Keep it fun and friendly!πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸ˜Š

How do I send an emoji? 😎

You can send an emoji in your message by clicking on the emoji face icon underneath the compose message box. You can scroll through the emoji options or, if you want to search for something specific, type it into the search bar at the top. 🌟

How many characters does an emoji use? πŸ‘€

You may notice when adding an emoji to your message, the character limit decreases from the standard amount. In addition to a decreased character limit, each emoji counts as 2 characters. This is because emojis use more data to deliver, which is why your message needs to be smaller. When adding an emoji to your message, the character limits are:

Up to 70 characters = 1 message credit

Up to 137 characters = 2 message credits

Up to 204 characters = 3 message credits

Why does the emoji I sent look different on an Android phone than it does on an iPhone or on the Textedly dashboard?🧐

Emojis have not been standardized across websites or devices. This means, that the emoji you send may appear slightly different on each user's phone depending on their mobile carrier, device, and operating system. It is important to be aware of this prior to sending any emojis.
