Making Emojis 3X Bigger In iMessage
If you’re an emoji fan then you must agree to the fact that bigger emojis are always better. With bigger emojis, you get to see all details and the emotions are conveyed properly as well. If you have iOS 10 installed on your device, you can see 3X bigger emojiscompared to what you normally have. But it can happen only in specific circumstances. Here are the steps to follow to make your emojis bigger.
- Open iMessage and enter 1-3 emojis in text field
- Tap on Send button which appears like upward arrow
- Remember that, however, if you enter more than 3 emojis it will go back to regular 1xsize. Also, entering emojis alongside some text will also bring emojis back to the default size.
