Learn how to send large emoticons on WhatsApp by sending an emoticon-only message.
Step 1. Open WhatsApp
The app is represented by a green text bubble inside of which is a white phone.
You should first confirm your phone number before WhatsApp can work on your device
Step 2. Press DISC
You will find this tab at the bottom (iPhone) or top (Android) of the screen.
If the app does not open to a chat, be sure to press the back button in the upper left corner of the screen first
Step 3. Open a chat
Tap the conversation you want to open.
Step 4. Tap the input field
It's at the bottom of the screen and when you tap it, your device's keyboard will appear.
Step 5. Select the emoticons button
On iPhone, tap on the face smiley at the bottom left corner of the keyboard. You may need to press and hold the globe icon first to bring up the little face.
On an Android device, tap the face smiley on your keyboard or press and hold the Enter key
Step 6. Enter the emoticon without text
You can send different sizes of emoticons.
- 1 emoticon: Sending an emoticon without anything else will cause a larger one to appear.
- 2 emoticons: When you send only two emoticons, they will be a little smaller than if you sent only one.
- 3 emoticons: Sending three emoticons without anything else will cause emoticons to appear a little larger than the ones you send with text.
- 4 emoticons and more: Sending at least four faces will cause emoticons to appear the same size as the ones you send with text.
Step 7. Press the submit button
It is represented by the paper airplane icon and is located at the right end of the input field. However, in some versions of Android you will see a check mark instead. When you tap on it, your big emoticon will be sent.
