Emojis are a hot topic these days, and the best emoji apps for Android provide you with even more of them. There’s something convenient about using emojis during text conversations, simply because they allow you to express your emotions without writing extra-long paragraphs. You can simply put an angry emoji after a text to express your anger and leave nothing up to chance.
However, the best emoji apps for Android give you more ammunition to be not only just funny but also expressive. There are certain Emojis that fit certain situations perfectly and we don’t want you to miss out on moments of hilarity just because your keyboard doesn’t support a certain emoji. While Android and other manufacturers have been trying to bring in a lot of Emojis on their stock keyboards, we still need the best emoji apps for Android to further extend the arsenal of Emojis in our smartphones and tablets.
Writer’s Note: The best emoji apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. They are all very different and provide different emoji experience, some may provide you with traditional emojis while others will allow you to become an emoji. So, I highly recommend that you check out all of the great emoji keyboards for Android and choose the best ones for yourself. As the apps are quite different from each other, they are not in any particular order.
