Problem with Emoji on Samsung Galaxy S4, 4.4.2?

I do not have the built in emoji button in my Qwerty default messaging keyboard, help?

There is unfortunately no built in emoji button on the default Galaxy S4 keyboard. Instead, what you need to do is press the microphone button, which will then bring up the submenu, from which you'll be able to access Emoji. Please revisit the main article by clicking the link at the end of the article summary on this page, and scroll down to the section titled "How to Use Built In Emoji on the Samsung Galaxy S4". This will show you the steps you need to follow in order to access Emoji on your GS4 running 4.4.2 (thanks for including the full build too!).

Thank you for explanations you provided to other users. By browsing through posted questions and responses, I figured out how to use and properly display the Emoji in my Samsung Galaxy S4 (which I've had for almost three years now...). That's all.

The emoticons replaced the return key on my S4 keyboard, how do I swap it back?

I have somehow changed my default keyboard to put emoticons where the return key was. How do I switch that back?. I have tried: I have tried changing they layout, and if I hold the emoticon key it does not give the return option. I tried turning of the Google speech keyboard.. I think it was caused by: I don't know what I did...fat fingered somehow
