New: Emoji Style UTF-8 Symbols

Last Updated: November 2019

Did you know that you can access a range of Unicode emojis and languages using our online SMS service 🙌? Emojis allow you to talk to your customers in a way that feels more personable than promotional.

All it takes is one smiley face for your customer to realise that you weren’t trying to sound cold.

Not only are they popular, but they’re also memorable. Text messages with emojis are more memorable, according to an academic study. They also make your business appear more friendly, competent, and friendly.

That said, there’s a fine line between elevating your content with emojis and overdoing it to the point where you lose attention. Some Millenials think that businesses try too hard to use emojis that don’t fit their brand. Only use them when there’s something relevant to emphasise.

Also, you can reach global audiences with text messages in other languages. You have access to over 650 languages with our platform’s UTF-8 (Unicode Transformation Format) compatibility.

**Please note that UTF8 characters limit SMS to 70 characters. So you pay for each 70 instead of each 160 as with standard text.
