If you’ve installed the Bitmoji app on your Android phone, you may be wondering how to add it to your phone’s keyboard. This is a very simple process.
The first step is to download the Bitmoji app from Google Play. Once you have it, sign up for an account or log in with your Snapchat credentials.
Installing the App
Bitmoji is a great way to express your emotions in a funny way. It’s free to download and allows you to create your own avatar and customize your Bitmoji.
It also integrates with many of your favorite messaging apps. For example, you can send Bitmojis directly to Snapchat and Facebook messenger.
However, you’ll need to install the Bitmoji app first. Once you’ve done that, you can use it to add Bitmoji stickers in a single tap on your phone.
The app will ask for permission to access your phone’s camera, microphone, call information, and device ID. It’s important to read the privacy policies of any apps you install and consent to these requests.
Enabling the Keyboard
The Bitmoji app is very popular, and it’s easy to see why. It’s fast, user-friendly, and fun to use.
However, the Bitmoji keyboard doesn’t automatically appear on your iPhone, so you need to enable it first. To do so, open the app and locate a world-shaped icon in the lower section of the screen.
Next, tap on the icon.
This will bring up a list of all of your available keyboards. From here, find and tap the Bitmoji keyboard.
You should now be able to insert Bitmojis into text messages or any other compatible apps on your phone.
However, if you’re concerned about privacy, it’s best to stay away from Bitmoji. The app asks for almost full access to your device’s identity, microphone, camera and call logs, which is a cause for concern for those who take data privacy seriously.
Adding Bitmoji to Gboard
If you want to add Bitmoji to your phone’s keyboard, you can do so easily. Gboard, Google’s Android-based keyboard, now offers a dedicated Bitmoji tab right next to the usual emoji and stickers.
Once you’ve signed in to the app using either Snapchat or your email address, you can set up your Bitmoji avatar. That will then allow you to access a collection of avatar-inspired stickers for use in other chat apps.
But there’s a catch. You’ll need to give Bitmoji permission to access your camera and microphone, your call information, and more.
If Bitmoji doesn’t work after enabling Full Access, you can reset it by tapping Restore Purchases and turning Full Access Off again. Once you’ve done that, Bitmoji should be visible as an option in any keyboard you use.
Adding Bitmoji to Other Apps
Bitmoji is a great way to add a personal flair to your chats on Facebook and other social media platforms. It replaces the native emoji library with cartoon avatars that look like you.
Once you have Bitmoji installed, you can paste it into virtually any app that uses the keyboard (e.g., Snapchat, WhatsApp, Messenger, Hangouts).
In some cases, you can even Airdrop the sticker to a nearby friend.
However, Bitmoji also collects some data about your device and sends it to the server. That may cause some concern for users who are paranoid about privacy.
If you’re a bit worried about how Bitmoji collects your data, there are some simple steps you can take to protect yourself. The first step is to disable mobile data in the settings.
