You might be happy to know that you can use Emoji Kitchen creations on the business messaging tool, Slack, if you use Gboard and Slack for communication at work.
Since Emoji Kitchen’s creations are essentially PNGs rather than recognized Unicode characters, strictly speaking this implies that Slack enables these keyboard stickers even if they are not emoji. We don’t know exactly when this option debuted, although there are some indications that it did in may have been available as far back as last year . However, a solution required downloading and then re-uploading images to Slack as attachments rather than typing directly from the keyboard. In any event, it had been blocked for a while but only recently appeared on some of our smartphones since personal chats would frequently contain more sunglasses poo emoji than actual and relevant text messages.
Even though it’s not really a big concern, Emoji Kitchen is still not available everywhere. You are only able to use authentic emoji and Unicode characters because some apps either prohibit stickers or are unable to support them. This may definitely be a major deal for Android users of Slack because sometimes you just need the right reply, and with over 14,000 possible options in Emoji Kitchen, you can find the ideal nasty comeback or jubilant answer to a Slack message as you see fit.
Because Emoji Kitchen isn’t available on iOS, even if Gboard is available on Apple devices your iPhone-toting coworkers might feel a little envious. We’re not really sure why, given that Gboard on iOS allows you to send stickers and GIFs. For users of Apple devices, the features’ designers Jennifer Daniel and Bhavik Singh do provide a solution.
The Emoji Kitchen has an online counterpart at emoji.kitchen that is accessible via the iOS browser. The Emoji Kitchen for iOS is more up to date than the one on Android, but users can still create emoji stickers and download them as images. In any case, using Slack as an Android user is advantageous because you can create all kinds of wacky Emoji Kitchen creations only to irritate your coworkers.
