Crikey - Aussies get own emoji keyboard

11 Feb 2016

Those lucky Australians now have their own Emoji keyboard.

In the beautiful world of the Emoji language, there’s an Aussie Emoji keyboard that features – wait for it – a Vegemite emoji.

The popular spread is just one of 40 emoji available on the Aussie keyboard, amongst other Australian symbols including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Koala Bear and a ‘fair dinkum’ speech bubble.

The app was developed by phone company OPPO, and is free to download on Google Play. No word yet If the keyboard is coming to iOS.

The emojis are available to use within the app itself or within messaging applications using the keyboard.

Hopefully we’ll see a Kiwi version coming soon, with Marmite, pavlova and Chris Warner.
