How do I use emoji?

In instant messages and status updates you can use emoji:

  • If you enter an emoticon like :-) it will be converted into the appropriate emoji character.
  • If you enter a standard emoji shortcut like :smile: it will be converted to the appropriate emoji character. A list of shortcuts can be found here.

To select other emoji use the picker on your operating system (on Windows 10 use the Windows key and ‘.’ together).
