Chrome’s default Emoji Library is available on Chrome OS, Mac, and Windows operating system. To use the emojis, you need to be running the Canary version of Chrome on your machine. Canary version of Chrome is an early release and an experimental version of the Google Chrome browser.
But there is nothing to worry about as you can run both stable and Canary versions of Google Chrome side by side.
Once you’ve made up your mind, these are the steps you need to follow:
1. Download Chrome’s Canary version from the official site.
2. In the browser address bar, you need to copy and paste “chrome://flags” hit enter and search for emoji
Alternatively, copy and paste this “chrome://flags/#enable-emoji-context-menu” to reach there quickly.
3. Once you find “Emoji Context Menu” flag, enable it.
4. Relaunch Chrome’s Canary browser.
This will enable emoji library for the text field. You need to the right click and then select Emoji to get access to Emoji picker.
From there, simply input an emoji.
The emoji library is a part of the default on-screen keyboard and works similar to Gboard, so the chances are high that you might find it challenging to type emoji. Still, it is way better than looking for online emoji repositories.
