Using Emoji and symbols in the messengers and in social apps can be very useful. There are many symbols on the Samsung Galaxy S4 keyboard that you can find simply by tapping on the '123' icon on your keyboard. However if you wish to use more symbols and Emoji there are number of apps you can download. Just keep in mind that if you're sending Emoji, often the person you are sending them to will need to have the same app installed.

How come my Galaxy S4 doesn't have some Emoji that other phones do?

On iPhone, it has like orange peace signs and stuff like that, I can see it, but on my Galaxy S4 I can't use them. How can I?

iPhone devices do not have these icons by default too. These are optional and are added as an emoji layout in the phone settings. Galaxy S4 initially did not get the emoji keyboard, but, eventually, it was implemented. Follow the steps below to see how you can use it.

If you want to create multiple lines in a picture description, just tap the lower-right enter key that's on your keyboard. If you want to write multiple lines in a comment, you'll just have to write a lot of words -- the enter key goes away when you go to write a comment.

How do I view Emoji sent from a non Samsung phone?

Why can I receive Emoji on my S4 but not send them myself?

I'm able to receive Emoji from people without MMS being involved, but when I try to send one (they are there, taunting me) it says that it might be corrupt for the person receiving it and to turn on automatic input or something like that. I couldn't even find an option like that. Thanks.
