How Do I Get iPhone Emojis ON my Android Phone?
Though Android has its own emoticons for texting, most of the Android users wish to have iPhone emojis on their Android phones. Mostly, because they are dissatisfied with the emojis that come standard with Android.
There are numerous reasons for this requirement. Some Android users claim that iOS emojis are more expressive than Android emojis, allowing them to express their emotions more accurately. Another group of users wishes to have a new collection of emojis on their phones because they consider Android emoticons are obsolete as well as somewhat uninteresting. This happens when you keep the same old phone for a long time without upgrading it. As a result, because their phones run on older versions of Android, users are forced to use emojis that were designed several years ago. So, to break up the monotony and have a new collection of cool emoticons for texting, it’s great to have iPhone emojis on your Android phone.
So if you love to have iPhone emojis on your Android phone, then the best option is to install an emoji app on your phone. It is easy to set up. The advantage is that it does not necessitate rooting.
Keep in mind that you can only receive iPhone-like emojis here, not genuine iPhone emojis. If you want emojis that are identical to those on the iPhone, you’ll need to root your Android device. Magisk is an excellent example of an Android root app that allows you to change your Android phone’s font to iOS fonts.
Here we are going to talk about both methods, and they are pretty simple.
