Instagram adds emoji shortcuts for quicker commentsSeptember 9, 2018
Instagram has added personalized emoji shortcuts to its app, placing your most used emoji above your keyboard when you begin to comment on a post. The new feature was widely rolled out on Thursday, but it has been in public testing since May on both Android and iOS.
The new emoji bar won’t show up in other areas that the keyboard is used, like responding to a story or captioning your own posts. But given the huge number of people that comment with emoji, this should help cut down on the time it takes to post a comment.
The new personalized emoji shortcuts are now available in the latest Instagram update on both Android and iOS.
