Typing Emoji on a Chromebook Just Got Easier

Looking for an easy way to type emoji on your Chromebook? If so, you may not need to turn to browser extensions or copy and paste from websites.

An easy way to access and enter emoji is available in Chrome OS, courtesy of the (dully named) ‘input device menu’.

When you elect to see input options in the shelf (Settings > Languages & Input) you’ll also nab quick access to the emoji keyboard (plus the handwriting canvas, but that’s not very useful on a non-touch device).

Getting the emoji picker up is dead easy. You simple click on the input menu in the shelf:

Tap on the smiley face emoji in the input menu and…

Et voila, the emoji keyboard appears! It even stays on screen until you dismiss it, so if you’ll be entering more than one emoji… you can – nifty!

How To Try It Out

To try the feature out on your Chromebook at the time of publication you’ll need to a) be running the very latest Chrome OS Dev channel release (which is v55.0.2869.0 on my device) and b) enable the following flag in the chrome://settings area:

chrome://flags/#enable-emoji-handwriting-voice-on-ime-menu

Don’t forget to enable the input menu as mentioned in the early part of this article, too!

I had to remove the colourful cat emoji from this post, as publishing with them embedded breaks stuff. >_<

    Working on Beta channel now, maybe release too. It does bugout when using auto-hide shelf in case anyone else is having that issue. 😎

    • GOOGLE is assisting users to begin with “Work at home” method, that I have been doing for over 12 months now. This year alone, I made approximately $36k till now with no more than my laptop or computer and some extra time, despite that i have a full-time 9 to five job. Even people new to this, actually make $50/per h successfully and the earnings can go much higher in the long run… This is how i started>>

    Not too shabby, but it seems to love to pop up the on screen keyboard every time I get to a text box to type with my keyboard. If it was an on demand vs automatic, that would be great.
