You will now be able to send a wide variety of Emoji to your friends. However, these Emoji may only be viewable by your friends who have Samsung devices. If your friends have HTC, LG, iPhones, or Microsoft Windows Phone phones, you will want to download an alternative keyboard to make sure that all of your friends can see all of your Emoji whenever you send them. Click here to download the Google Keyboard, which has Emoji that are cross-platform compatible with most operating systems. Once it's downloaded, follow these instructions to send your friends Emoji:
