Emojis are an integral part of our conversations. If you have been using your smartphone for messaging your friends, colleagues, etc., you might find it difficult to chat without emojis. A single emoji can express your feelings that will take multiple words otherwise. So there is no doubt that emojis makes our life easier and saves a lot of time. With that being said, most of the popular messaging applications including WhatsApp provides a desktop app for Windows 10. So if you are using any of these applications, it won’t be a problem to insert emojis in your chat messages. All you have to do is using the in-built emoji picker.
However, it is not the case for every single application out there. For example, you may be using a custom chat app developed by your business for internal chat purposes which does not have an emoji feature built in. In such circumstances, the only way you can use emojis in your chat is using the built-in Windows 10 emoji picker. Yes you heard it right. Windows 10 comes with an emoji picker that will allow you to insert an emoji in almost any text area on your operating system. In this article we are going to take a look at that.
