How do I insert a word and the predicted emoji on SwiftKey for Android?

3rd September 2014

Hi everyone,

Welcome to this week’s installment of SwiftKey Keyboard Tips & Tricks! This week, we wanted to share how you can insert a word and also the accompanying emoji.

Here we share the inside scoop so you don’t have to worry that once you select the word, the relevant emoji will disappear and you’ll need to waste time writing the keyword again.

To try it out, type in a keyword, such as, ‘house’. When you see this word show up in the prediction bar, tap it, and this will insert the word and also leave the emoji prediction in the far right of the prediction bar so you can tap on that to insert it as well.

This is a cool little trick that allows you to express yourself with a word and also the matching emoji. Handy, since there are more than 800 fun designs at your fingertips!

Go ahead and try it yourself. Did you know this existed? If you’re wondering why your emoji look different, there’s a short explanation on the blog which might help.

    hello, as already mentioned in another discussion, it would be really great if there is a blog or specific thread which will explain the relevant words for all 800 emoji.. Because, i use Emoji alot.. there are only few which pop ups while typing.. meaning i don’t know the exact names or the list to be used with swiftkey.. Thanks in advance for coming up with a new blog for this request..

      This ^^ It would be great if you provided a list of word(s) -> emoji mappings. Some are obvious, but some are not. Also, it’d be great if we could add our own mappings as well!

    Do you have a reference somewhere of what the keynames are for all the emojis?
