How to Write Emoji on a Chromebook

Emoji first became popular on smartphones, but they are just as necessary on computers. Chromebooks and Chrome OS tablets also have built-in emoji. We show you where to find them and how to use emoji on your device.

People may not use as much emoji when typing on a laptop as they would on a smartphone. Windows and Mac include emoji support, and so do Chromebooks. They are easy to access when you need the little extra touch that only an emoji can provide.

Chromebooks are available in form factors with physical keyboards and touch screen only. We start with the traditional keyboard and mouse.

First, the cursor must be in a text box. When you are ready to add an emoji, right-click in the text box.

This opens a pop-up menu. Click on the “Emoji” option.

The different emoji categories are listed at the bottom of the keyboard. Find the emoji you want to use and then click on it to add the icon to the text box.

On a touchscreen Chromebook without a physical keyboard, the process is even easier. Start typing in a text box to bring up the virtual keyboard.

As with Chrome OS devices with a physical keyboard, the virtual keyboard can be displayed as a floating window instead of a full-size keyboard.
