Emoji suggestions to replace words

It would be cool if we got our standard, run of the mill, emoji prediction that most keyboards these days have.

    Thanks for reaching out, Roy! We do have predictions for emoji. Do you mean that you want different emojis to be predicted by different trigger words? Or, something else?



  • Hey John, your emoji predictions don't work like how other keyboards do where they completely replace a word/phrase they're predicting. In that essence, I think we should have the options for suggested emojis to replace a specific word. For example, when I type "poop" just allow me to substitute the word for the poop emoji. 

  • Hey Roy,

    I see what you mean! I'll talk with our dev team to see when that feature will be available!

  • Hey John,


    In the past, the word around for this was to allow us to enter our own words/emojis in the "Shortcuts" plug, that way when we typed a word, it would be autocorrected to that emoji, but in updates since, that feature has been broken. 

  • Hi Roy,

    I just tested what you said. The shortcut extension worked fine on this end. What are you finding is broken about it?

  • Hey John,

    Before a few updates ago, even if I mistyped a word and it needed to autocorrect to the emoji, the emoji would pop up just fine. Now, if I mistype the word and it needs to be autocorrected to the correct word, the emoji won't show.

    So for instance, when I type in "poop" but I type in pooop or popp, it'll autocorrect to poop, but won't switch it out for the poop emoji like it once used to. ALSO, when I do precisely type in a word, all I get in the suggesitons are question marks, when before, it didn't do that 

  • I've taken screenshots and video to support my findings. I can post the picture here, but where can I send you the video?


  • Hey John,


    As you can see, I'm getting the question marks when typing an emoji trigger word and most times, it doesn't autocorrect to the emoji when I press the spacebar
