Emojis are a fun way to react to someone’s message without typing those sentences. You can send a thumbs-up to appreciate something or send an open-mouth emoji to react to something shocking.

The Galaxy S22 series ships with Android 12 and One UI 4.1, and although Samsung talked a bit about the latest software at Galaxy Unpacked, some minor details were left out. Or one was, at least.

For the foreseeable future, Android users will forever be the “green bubble people” for people with iPhones.
