Oh My Japan is happy to announce that emoji (😊) can now be used in messages.

Emoji are an important part of Japanese culture (the word "Emoji" is after all Japanese) and Oh My Japan is now able to support their use in messages and profile text.

Starting immediately, you can simply use your device's keyboard to input any emoji supported by your system and it should appear properly on Oh My Japan. Emoji input is available as standard on iOS (iPhone, iPad, and iPod) and Windows Phone.
