Getting a thumbs up emoji on my Galaxy S4?

Hi there! Are you free? I want to have a thumbs up emoji on my Samsung Galaxy S4 to use while texting. After reading online, I have the notion that the only way that's going to happen is to install an app. And while I wouldn't mind that, I've also read that unless the person has the same app, he won't see it right. The person I'm sending to has an iPhone so, thanks for any help, here comes the 1-2 punch, after I hit next?

Is there a hidden Emoji keyboard on latest Samsung Galaxy S4 phone?

Having trouble sending Emoticons in my text messages

Yes, there is a hidden Emoji keyboard in the Samsung Galaxy S4, and also the S5. You need to be running the latest version of the OS for either 4.2.2, or 4.4. If you are running either version of those operating systems, you can use the hidden Emoji. To access these Emoji, simply open your SMS app, tap in the message area so you can type, and then press and hold the microphone icon on the keyboard. After a moment, an icon menu will appear. Tap on the smiley face Emoji icon, and you will be able to write Emoji.
