Love them or hate them, emoji have grown to become a pretty essential part of how many people communicate online, but they can be a bit of a pain to type when you8217;re not on your phone. Thankfully, you can enable an experimental feature in Chrome to give you access to an emoji menu wherever you are on the web.
Whether or not the website will be able to understand you is another matter entirely, but generally if the service has a mobile app that already allows people to use emoji, then it seems to work. We were able to use it to send emoji on both Twitter and the WhatsApp Web app, for example.
Unfortunately, despite some websites now being accessible by typing emojis into the URL bar on mobile, the context menu item doesn8217;t appear when you right-click in Chrome8217;s desktop address bar.
- Type 8216;chrome://flags8217; into the URL bar to see the list of experimental features you can enable.
- Use the bar at the top of this page to search for 8216;Emoji8217;.
- Once you8217;ve found the 8216;Emoji Context Menu8217;, choose 8216;Enabled8217; from the box on the right.
- Click 8216;Relaunch Now8217; on the bottom right to restart Chrome. Don8217;t worry, it will remember all the tabs you have open.
Now bombarding your friends and followers with emoji will be as easy as possible. Just right-click any text box and select 8216;Emoji & Symbols8217; from the menu that appears. There8217;s even a little search box so you can quickly find the exact symbol you8217;re looking for.
