Transforming words and messages into emojis is one of the many new features of the iOS messaging app . With a simple trick, you can choose words to replace them with emojis and convert a generic text message into a colorful message interspersed with Emojis.
The emoji text replacement tool works on an iPhone or iPad as long as you have a modern version of iOS. Next, let's review how to use this new feature in the iOS messaging app.
It is worth clarifying that you will have to activate the emoji keyboard first if you have not done so already, and you will need any of the latest versions of iOS 10.0.
How to replace words with emojis in the iOS messaging app
- Open the message app on your iPhone or iPad and see a message thread already started as usual (or start a new conversation)
- Write a message with words that are capable of being represented as emoji, such as "pizza" or "cat"
- Briefly press the Emoji keyboard button to bring up the emoji screen
At one point, words that can be converted to Emoji will be highlighted in orange. Tap each eligible word to make it emoji
Send the newly created "emojed" message as usual
