Customizable favorite emoji list

Eppi shared this idea 11 months ago
Under Consideration

How about a feature where users could manually select ~10 emoji as their favorites which will be shown always at top of the emoji table, regardless if they habe been used recently or not.

Selecting the frequently used emoji would be even faster as they are always at the same spot. Out of the hundreds of available emoji i normally dont use more than 10. Furthermore, with this feature the sequence of the favorite emoji would not change every time i do use a rare emoji, which nowadays is the case, as it will be shown under the time symbol.

To sum up: I am annoyed by searching for my favorite emoji in the huge table because it was thrown out of the quick access as I recently used a rare emoji. I'd rather have them (manually selected) fixed at top of the table.

Thanks a lot for your input, Eppi! In most cases automatical ways are used more frequently than manual customizations but we're open for it.

What do other users think?

Hey, I'm often missing a customizable Emojikeyboard while texting. For example in Whatsapp, if I use an Emoji once, it appears immediately in my favs, which is often not that useful. Would love this function!

Hey Fabio

iOS or Android? In the recently used emoji it should display emoji which you have used a lot during the last days/weeks. So after using an emoji once it shouldn't appear or at least disappear after a while if you use other emoji instead.

Maybe there's a bug

Hey Janis,

its Android. I was talking about the Whatsapp build in Emoji keyboard, sorry for the misunderstanding. In WRIO I think it took the first emojis I used, and now they are in my favourites since then. And it's only two rows of emojis.

Hey Fabio

Correct, there are only two rows. But it should be a mix between recent and most used emoji. It won't know what you used on Whatsapp emoji "keyboard" though.
