iOS Emojis On Snapchat – For Android

By

Snapchat is a multimedia mobile app developed by Snap Inc. It’s a popular messaging app, mainly used to exchange photos and videos called snaps since they disappear after being viewed. The Snapchat camera has many features and filters that especially girls find attractive.

No makeup? Looking tired? No worries, in a couple of clicks, Snapchat will fix everything.

Now, if you want to chat with someone, and you have two different phones, one of you has an Android, and one has an iPhone. The one with an Android won’t see emojis. Instead, everything will be shown in the form of boxes and question marks. This is the moment your text exchange becomes dull because you don’t see the expressions.

This issue occurs because the emoji support on a sender’s device is not the same as emoji support on the recipient’s device. Luckily, there is a solution to the issue. You can get new emojis on your Android, iOS emojis and enjoy the conversation further.

I will show you a short guide on how to do so.
