Google Chrome is a popular browser available on the internet. It has all necessary features which must have in a modern browser. Regularly, the company introduces new and useful features to fancy users.

Enable Chrome’s Emoji Library

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.
