What you need to know

  • Slack on Android now lets you use Gboard’s Emoji Kitchen to create emoji mashups.
  • These emoji hybrids are treated simply as PNGs rather than official Unicode characters.
  • However, Emoji Kitchen creations are still somewhat limited in terms of app compatibility.

Gboard has rolled out support for Emoji Kitchen creations on Slack for Android, making your typing experience more fun with all sorts of emoji combinations.

According to 9to5Google (opens in new tab), you can now create emoji mashups when composing a message on Slack using Gboard. Divinemercy can confirm that the feature is live on some of the Android phones we’re using.
