If while installing your unrooted Android does not give you permission then go to settings and turn on the unknown sources.
- After you have downloaded the apk file,it opens an app store called “aptoide” (this is like an app store for rooted version Android phones). Now look for emoji font 3 and install it on your device.
- Now after installing it, you need to make some changes in your Android settings. Go to Settings –> Display –> Font style, Now click on it and you will get various options. From these options select emoji font 3.
- After this, you might notice a change in the font but try changing the size of the font and it should fix the problem for you.
- After installing that, download and install the Google Keyboard by the name of “Gboard” from Play Store. Most stock Android Phones (like Samsung Galaxy) are already using the Google keyboard so if you have a stock Android Phone you can skip this step.
- After downloading and installing it, click on “select input method” and select Gboard from it. It will set the Google keyboard as your default keyboard.
