Google Sheets Emojis

Google Sheets does not have its own unique set of emojis. Instead, when you insert emojis into a Google Sheets document, it uses the standard emojis that are available through your operating system's emoji keyboard or through special commands like @emoji. These emojis are the same ones you would find on your smartphone, in email clients, or on social media platforms.

How to Add Emojis to Google Sheets 

Follow the steps below to easily add emojis to Google Sheets. 

1. Click on Cell Where Emoji Will Be Added

Select the cell where you want to place the emoji by clicking on it.

2. Enter @emoji Command in the Selected Cell

In the active cell, type @emoji followed by a space. This special command signals Google Sheets to initiate the emoji search feature.

3. Type Emoji Name to Search and Select From List

After typing @emoji, you can select among the emojis available on the platform. You can also type the name of the emoji you're looking for, such as "heart" or "smile". Click on the emoji that best fits your needs.

4. Confirm Emoji Selection to Insert in Cell

By clicking on an emoji from the dropdown list, it automatically gets inserted into your selected cell. The emoji will now be visible in the cell, and you can insert multiple emojis in the same cell by repeating the @emoji command followed by the emoji's name.

5. Adjust Font Size to Change Emoji Size (Optional)

If the inserted emoji appears too small or too large for your liking, you can adjust its size by changing the font size of the cell it's in. Navigate to the menu bar, locate the font size dropdown menu, and select a different font size.
