Are you tired of using emojis that don’t represent your racial identity? Android devices have a wide range of emojis to choose from, but they might not always reflect the diversity of the real world.

Luckily, there are ways to get racially diverse emojis on your Android device. In this article, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Update Your Operating System

If you want to have access to the latest emojis, make sure your Android device is running on the most recent operating system. Emojis are regularly updated, and newer versions often include more diverse options.

To check for updates, go to Settings > System > System updates and tap on “Check for updates. “

Step 2: Install a Third-Party Emoji Keyboard

To get access to a wider range of racially diverse emojis, you can install a third-party emoji keyboard app from the Google Play Store. There are several options available, such as Emoji Keyboard by EmojiOne or Gboard by Google. Download and install the app of your choice.

Here’s how to install Emoji Keyboard:

  • Open the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  • Search for “Emoji Keyboard” in the search bar.
  • Select an app from the search results that suits your preferences.
  • Tap on “Install” and wait for the app to download and install on your device.

Step 3: Set Up Your New Emoji Keyboard

After installing an emoji keyboard app, you need to set it as your default keyboard. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > System > Languages & input.
  2. Select “Virtual keyboard” or “On-screen keyboard.”
  3. Choose “Manage keyboards.”
  4. Toggle on the new emoji keyboard you installed.

Now that you have set up your new emoji keyboard, let’s see how to use the racially diverse emojis.

Step 4: Access Racially Diverse Emojis

To access racially diverse emojis on your Android device, follow these steps:

  1. Open any app where you can type, such as messaging or social media apps.
  2. Tap on the text input field to bring up the keyboard.
  3. Tap on the emoji icon on the keyboard to open the emoji selection panel.
  4. Look for a skin tone selector option near the bottom of the panel. It may be represented by a hand symbol or a palette icon.
  5. Select your preferred skin tone from the available options. You should see a range of skin tones from light to dark.

Congratulations! You can now use racially diverse emojis in your conversations and express yourself more accurately.

Additional Tips:

  • If you can’t find a skin tone selector in your emoji panel, make sure you have updated your operating system and installed a compatible emoji keyboard app.
  • You can also customize other aspects of your emojis, such as gender representation or specific professions, depending on the options provided by your chosen emoji keyboard app.

Now that you know how to get racially diverse emojis on Android, go ahead and add more diversity and inclusivity to your digital communications!
