Messages app in iOS 10 has been revamped to offer a top-notch messaging experience. The app has taken emoji to an altogether new level in order to let you express your different feelings in style. Boy, you have to try it to believe how smart it has become!
The predictive QuickType keyboard now suggests emojis as well apart from the regular words. As for instance, if you type car, you will see a car emoji. One very important thing you need to keep in mind is that emoji will show up only when a word has a corresponding emoji. For example, if you type happy, you will see a smiley face.
Moreover, you can send three times bigger emojis. Personally, I have been painting the town red by getting the best out of this excellent feature.
Unfortunately, some of the users have reported that predictive emoji is not working on iPhone running iOS 10. There are a few tricks that have worked in resolving this issue. Give them a go if you have run into the same problem!
