Emoji in Bitrix24

Emoji are ideograms used in electronic messages and web pages to express an idea or an emotion. They are much like emoticons, but emoji are actual pictures instead of symbols.

Emoji are supported by most of the operating systems (Windows, MacOS, iOS, Linux, Android), office suites (MS Office, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, etc.), social networks and messengers (WhatsApp, Viber, FB Messenger, Telegram, Facebook, etc.).

Bitrix24 supports emoji in Feed messages and comments, chats in Bitrix24 Messenger or Desktop app.

The same emoji can be displayed differently depending on your OS: colored, black-and-white or even as an empty box.
