This ‘Unicode’ Chrome App Is The Easiest Way to Copy and Paste Emoji

Unicode is a small Chrome app lets you search, copy and paste from 27,000 Unicode characters, including Emoji. 

Ideal for Chrome OS, Linux and Windows (Mac OS X features an inline palette that can be opened pressing Ctrl + Cmd), the tool offers up an organised array of pictographs, emoticons, punctuation and much, much more.


A search box allows you to filter through to find the character you’re looking for quickly:

Search from over 27,000 characters

Search from over 27,000 characters

Clicking on a character will instantly copy it to the system clipboard, ready to paste elsewhere, e.g., in an instant message, tweet, blog comment sections, etc.

The app remembers the five most recently copied characters and lists them available at the top of the window.

If there was a criticism to be had it’s that, with more than 27,000 character to pick from, browsing and results are often difficult to sift through.

An option or filter to setting to only show the sorts of character sets you use, like emoji, and exclude those you don’t, like extended punctuation, could make things far more manageable.

    No link???

  • For me, using on Windows, most of characters showed up as boxes. I guess I don’t have good unicode support on my computer.

      Uniscribe font list is hard-coded and any external font will only work by explicitly choosing in an browser or text software. Another thing is that OpenType support is rather poor on Windows (ligatures sometimes does not work).
      Finally, there is a bug overflow in GDI+ that gives a BSOD when visualizing a large font such Symbola (tested on BabelMap on Windows 6.1).

  • I don’t understand why Chrome doesn’t support Emoji natively. I HATE having to rely on an extension, especially when the pickings are so slim. The Chromoji extension was awesome. I hate that it went away.

  • Now if only the emojis would show up in Windows 7..
