If a picture says 1,000 words, then sometimes the most efficient way to chat with your colleagues is with an emoji. Now you can easily “embiggen” your emoji in Flowdock preferences. To include an emoji in Flowdock, type it in directly starting with a “:”, or click the little smiley face on the right of the input field.

Adding an emoji via the dialog is easy:

  • Click the emoji
  • Click on emojis in the top row to search an emoji category
  • Search to explore all emojis using a keyword
Or, if you’re feeling creative, scroll to the bottom and click ‘+ Add your own emoji…’ to create your own. Once you’ve created your own emoji, you can enter it directly to chat by starting with the “:”, search, or find it under the start emoji in the top of the emoji selection dialog.

Sometimes emojis have to be just a bit larger to be fully appreciated. In Preferences, you can now adjust the slider to change the size of your emojis. The koala head will indicate the size you’re selecting.
