how to use kaomoji

2023.06.10

I really like using kaomoji (text based emojis) when I talk to friends online, and people often ask me how I type them. The secret is, I don't type them out! I have them as shortcuts on my phone/computer. Here's how I do it

1. On iphone go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement
2. Copy the kaomoji you want and paste it into the "Phrase" field, and put a shortcut phrase.
Tip: use a word with an extra letter because it will fill the kaomoji wherever you type the shortcut phrase.
