Imagine sending nerd emojis to your friend, only to have them look like rabbit faces on your friend’s iPhone. Android phones and iPhones use different emoji designs, sometimes leading to miscommunication. Whether you prefer the iOS emojis or want to see them exactly as iPhone users do, here’s how to get iPhone Emojis on your Android phone.

1. Change Keyboard

One of the easiest ways to solve the emoji translation issue is to use a different keyboard that uses iPhone emojis. However, you can only view the iOS emojis on the keyboard. But once you send them via any messaging app, they will again look like your default Android emojis.

Because a keyboard cannot control how emojis look on your entire OS. You can use a keyboard with iOS emojis to enjoy how they actually look on your Android phone.

Many third-party keyboard apps support iOS emojis on Android. Among the keyboards we have tried, iOS emojis for Android keyboard and Kika Keyboard works great. Download either of the apps from the Google Play Store.

Complete the setup process and set them as your default keyboard. After that, you can start seeing iOS emojis on your keyboard. However, you can see the iOS-style emojis only on the keyboard, but not on the chat app. Whenever you use the image, the Android OS will automatically change it to the one fit for your Android phone.

2. Change Your Font

Changing the keyboard only changes the emojis on the keyboard but on the messaging app itself. But you can change the emoji font on your phone to iOS to get iOS emojis on your Android phone. However, note that third-party font-changing apps only work on some Android phones from makers like Samsung, Vivo, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei/Honor, Oppo, and Realme.

You can change fonts on other manufacturer phones if your phone is rooted. Remember rooting your phone may result in the loss of the warranty.

1. Get and install the zFont 3 app on your Android phone.
