Emoji may not be a language per se, but it is an extremely popular way of expression. So popular in fact, that better support for emoji has been a frequent request from Fleep users.
Which is why we ‘re switching from Fleep emoticons to emoji! Well, it’s one of the reasons anyway.
Emoji is becoming the standard of emoticons across platforms. Emoji are getting better, there’s more and more of them, and they’re even becoming a part of the operation system’s offering. So, we’re more than happy to embrace them with complete support for emoji in Fleep across all platforms.
Even if we would maintain the Fleep emoticons, we could not stop our users from posting emoji – and you are doing that already anyway. And so, as of today, Fleep emoticons are a part of Fleep’s history – and your emoticon pickers on in Fleep show and post emoji!

Click the smiley icon in the desktop version to launch the emoji menu:
There is an emoji menu available in the Fleep mobile apps too, under the + sign (iOS on the left, Android on the right):
If you wish to be able to see all emoji, though, you can use the emoji keyboard on your iOS or Android device:
- Type and send the emoji code
We use the standard emoji codes - all you need to do is type in the code and send it. If you’re not sure of the emoji code, you can also browse them by typing a colon followed by a few letters:
Note that emoji codes are not supported in the Fleep mobile apps.
But that’s not all! If your message contains only Emoji, they will be shown supersize:
Erm, we’d encourage caution with these in group conversations…
