What does the vertical rectangle with intersecting lines in the shape of an "x" mean?

Permalink - Posted on 2020-06-07 19:13

A rectangle which has an X inside means there is a Unicode character or emoji that is meant to show there, but your system doesn’t support it. This shows as a question mark in a box on iOS.

The most common reason people see an X in a box instead of an emoji is if the sender is using a new emoji, and your phone operating system or app hasn’t been updated to support that emoji yet.

To fix it, check if your phone has any new software updates available. Some phones don’t provide updates for long, and if that is your case, you might not be able to ever see new emojis.

You can tweet emojis to @botmoji on Twitter (even the x in a box) and it will tell you what you’re meant to see.

🎌 How to use Flag Emojis on Windows

Permalink - Posted on 2020-06-07 16:03

When using emojis on Windows you might have seen that none of the flag emojis show up properly.

Instead of showing the color emoji these show a two letter code like BR for Brazil or US for the United States.

This doesn’t happen on other systems like iOS, macOS or Android. The flag section on getemoji.com is a long list of two-letter codes.

The only flags that show properly on Windows are those that don’t belong to countries, like the 🏴‍☠️ Pirate Flag or 🏳️‍🌈 Rainbow Flag.

If you need to send a flag emoji from Windows, these codes still work when you copy and paste them.

Copy and paste the code for BR and send it to someone on a Mac or phone and at their end they will see the right flag emoji.

This also works on Twitter, where the two letter code is replaced with a Twemoji image for the right flag.

If you don’t know all the two letter country codes, you can look up the list of emoji flags by name on Emojipedia.

Click the flag emoji that you want to use, and then on the next page click the Copy button which is next to the two-letter code.

Paste that code into any message or tweet and it will show as a flag at the other end.

Why doesn’t Windows support flag emojis?

It’s not mandatory for any system to support all emojis. Maybe with the difficulties seen on other platforms when flags are used, Microsoft decided it wasn’t worth their while.

This is a shame as the flags are often used for helpful communications online and look good on other operating systems.

Apps like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and Slack all use their own emoji implementations on Windows, and copying and pasting these codes into those apps will also show the right emoji 👍

How to use the 🥺 Pleading Face emoji

Lots of phones don’t yet support the pleading face emoji because they are running outdated apps or operating systems.

Even if the pleading emoji doesn’t work on your phone, you can use it by copying and pasting it from here:

🥺

^ just above here is the pleading face emoji.

It might show as an X or an empty box if you are on an old system, but when sent to a newer phone it will show correctly at the other end. Just because you have an old phone, tablet or computer doesn’t mean you can’t use this new emoji in messages, tweets or comments like YouTube or TikTok.

Another option instead of copy and paste is to use the emoji keyboard on your phone or computer, if you are running a recent update.

You can copy and paste any emoji on the web, or try to keep on top of new operating system updates so you can do this straight from your phone or laptop.

What does a question mark in a box mean

Permalink - Posted on 2019-01-21 11:58

A question mark inside a box means there is an emoji you cannot see, usually because your phone software is out of date.

New emojis are released every year and because these send as Unicode characters not pictures, your phone system software (iOS or Android) or the app you are using needs to add support for new emojis for them to work.

If you see a question mark in a box, try updating your phone software and you might see the emoji!

Permalink - Posted on 2018-11-10 11:34

The emoji keyboard for Mac is quick, easy to use, and built in to the operating system. View this tutorial on YouTube or read on for step-by-step instructions.

To use emojis on previous releases of OS X such as El Capitan, check out the relevant guide. The following instructions are for macOS 10.12 Sierra, released in late 2016. The same instructions apply to macOS 10.13 High Sierra (2017), and macOS 10.14 Mojave (2018).

1. Go to any text field, then press the following keys at the same time:

4. Tip: If you click-and-hold on some emojis, you get a choice of skin tone. Release on the skin tone of your choice:

Note: Only some emojis are enabled for diverse skin tones. This is mostly the human-looking characters. Families and emojis with more than a single person do not  support skin tone modifiers.

Create a palette

To insert more than one emoji without the picker disappearing each time, you need to turn the picker into a palette.

Drag and drop any of the empty space in the emoji picker interface to create a floating emoji palette. This can be placed anywhere on your screen, and closed by clicking the X close button.

Copy and Paste

To see a larger version of these emojis, or to copy and paste an emoji, view all emojis in Safari:
