Re: Emoji

Hi @Kerry29, welcome to the community.

 

@WirelessWonkFL is quite right, you should find it by long pressing the ⏎ key. 

You can also set up a dedicated emoji button if you like by going to Settings > Language & Inputs > SwiftKey Keyboard > Typing > Keys and enable the "Dedicated emoji key" option.

Re: Emoji

I had the same question - it was baffling me!  Then I saw it:

Once the keypad is activated and cursor is in the Write message field, just press and hold the Return/New Line key at the bottom right of the screen.  (Using the stock messaging app, on the Xperia XA1, running Android 7.0)
