How to Get Emojis on a Chromebook
Emojis have become an essential part of our daily conversations, and you can find them on almost every instant messaging application or social media platform. If you’re using a Chromebook, you might have noticed that the keyboard doesn’t have an emoji key like smartphones or tablets. However, there are a few ways to get emojis on a Chromebook, which this article will explore.
Method 1: Enable the Chromebook On-Screen Keyboard
Chromebooks come with an on-screen keyboard that includes emojis. To enable it, go to the settings menu and select the “Accessibility” option. Under the “Keyboard” section, turn on the toggle next to “Enable on-screen keyboard.” Once enabled, click the keyboard icon in the bottom right corner of the taskbar to open the on-screen keyboard. You’ll see an emoji key next to the spacebar, which you can use to access the emojis.
Method 2: Use Browser Extensions
Several browser extensions can add an emoji keyboard to your Chromebook. One popular option is the Emoji Keyboard by EmojiWorks, which adds an emoji button to the Chromebook’s taskbar. Clicking the button will open a pop-up keyboard with a wide range of emojis to choose from.
To install this extension, visit the Chrome Web Store and search for “Emoji Keyboard by EmojiWorks.” Click “Add to Chrome,” and once the extension is installed, you’ll see a new icon in the Chromebook’s taskbar. Clicking the icon will bring up the emoji keyboard.
Method 3: Use a Third-Party App
If you’re looking for a more comprehensive solution, you can install third-party apps designed to provide emojis on Chromebooks. One such app is the “Emoji Keyboard” by Kika Tech, which is available on the Google Play Store. You can download and install the app on your Chromebook, and it will add a virtual keyboard with emojis along with other features like animated GIFs, themes, and cool fonts.
To install the app, open the Google Play Store on your Chromebook and search for “Emoji Keyboard” by Kika Tech. Click “Install,” and once the app installs, click the keyboard icon in the bottom right of your Chromebook’s taskbar to switch to the Kika keyboard. From there, you can access thousands of emojis, stickers, themes, and more.
