I received a request to share some of the emoji’s now supported in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so I thought I’d share with everyone. This is by no means a comprehensive list (you can see from the above image, I’m missing a few), but they could be helpful for those feeling left out of the emoji scene. Enjoy.
Lastly, here are a few more words to type out (but sadly, missing a preview):
question, exclamation, circle
paper, rock, scissors
baseball, soccer, golf
fahrenheit, celsius, degree
aries, taurus, gemini, cancer, leo, virgo, libra, scorpius, sagittarius, capricorn, aquarius, pisces
king, queen, bishop, knight, rook, pawn
plus, minus, multiplication, divide
five-eighths, seven-eighths, one-thirds, two-thirds
happy, heart, star
For those that missed the original discovery post a few weeks back, here’s a quick walkthrough of how you can enable emoji’s (also known as emoticons) on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Simply jump into your Settings > Language & input > Android keyboard (settings) > Add-on dictionaries > Emoji for English words. Mine was being difficult the first time around, so you may have to go back into Add-on dictionaries, click refresh and install again. From there, whenever you type out one of the keywords listed above in the regular Android keyboard, you should see an auto-complete suggestion for an emoji icon. Good luck!
