How do I access emoji with SwiftKey on iOS?

Users of SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone, & iPad have the ability to choose from a variety of different emoji from within the app.

To access the multitude of emoji, just tap the 'Quick Emoji key' (smiley face) next to the spacebar.


You are then free to scroll through the emoji panel and choose your desired emoji.


The emoji panel is split into 3 areas. These include:

  • Emoji predictions based on what you've typed
  • Recently used emoji
  • Emoji categories

When you've inserted your emoji, just hit the 'abc' key to return back to the keyboard.

Tip: Long-press the icon highlighted in the image below to trigger an 'emoji bomb' ;)


Where did the Globe key go?

The 'Quick emoji key' is enabled by default. It replaces the globe key to the left of the spacebar. Pressing and holding it will always show both globe and 'Quick Emoji key'.


If you'd like to toggle this setting so the globe icon appears instead, please do the following:

  1. Open the SwiftKey app from your device
  2. Tap 'Settings'
  3. Uncheck 'Quick Emoji key'
