There are hundreds of emoji keyboard apps out there, letting you add more variety to your emoji icons when you text or use other messenger apps. Finding one which suits you can be tricky, or even just finding one that’s not like the others. Fortunately, free apps like Bitmoji for Chrome are on the case! This app allows you to create an avatar and build your emojis from it, so they’ll be unique to you. This simple and clever idea really makes your Gmail messages personal.
Why this Chrome extension for Gmail over all the rest?
Bitmoji for Chrome has the edge on many emoji apps because of its uniqueness. Rather than trying to compete in number of emojis -where admittedly this app falls way short- it focuses on giving you different, personalized emojis. The concept is surprisingly simple; the app lets you build an avatar from a series of face shapes, body types, hair and clothing. Then that avatar is posed in various ways to create the emojis, with each one starring you (or whoever you create). That way, you get to inject yourself into your Gmail emails. The app’s icons are fairly varied, from a flirty kiss to fist-bump for respect. The number of attributes that let you personalize your avatar increase the variety further, so you can change up your hair or clothes if you get bored. You can have fun making the wildest or ugliest version of yourself!
A clever way to create variety
While Bitmoji for Chrome could stand to have more stickers, there’s still a lot of variety here thanks to the personalized nature of the avatars. This clever idea lets you become the star of your own emojis and the added function of 2-person emojis is great fun with friends. Though this extension is simple and won’t add a huge amount of icons to your collection, they are of high quality and feel unique and interesting.
