How to use emoji

The MixThe Mix Posts: 2,264 Community Managers
Hey everyone,

You may have noticed that when you're posting on the boards, the little emoji button:  only gives you 12 emoji to choose from! :scream:

But fear not! The boards do have a lot more to choose from. :relieved:

If you're using a computer (not a phone), the easiest way to add emoji to your post is to type a colon : followed by the name of the emoji you want.

As soon as you type a colon you should see a list of suggested emoji pop up. You can start typing the name of an emotion or facial expression to refine the list and find the right one:


If you're on your phone, you can simply use your phone's built-in emoji.

Here is the full list of emoji built into the new boards and their codes:

    Mike can we have a hug emoji soon? If it's possible. It's the only thing missing. 
    Some people think i am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking

    Hey @Abigail

    We do need a hug emoji! It's not something that's possible to add at the moment, but hopefully it's a feature Vanilla will add soon :)
