Here’s a Quick List of Jelly Bean Emoji’s Complete with Walkthrough [Tips & Tricks]


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.

baseball, soccer, golf
fahrenheit, celsius, degree
aries, taurus, gemini, cancer, leo, virgo, libra, scorpius, sagittarius, capricorn, aquarius, pisces
phone, telephone

church, temple

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!
