Accessing the TikTok emojis is as easy as adding a colon and end parenthesis to create a smiley face elsewhere. In this case, you put a word like “smile,” “angry,” or “shout” between brackets, and as soon as you hit the space key, the TikTok emoji will pop up. It will either be one of the colorful round-faced emojis, or the version that shows spiked hair and a rounded lower face.
There are actually dozens of TikTok emojis to choose from, and if you follow the correct format, you’ll be able to use them yourself. Some of the fun emojis that are a bit different from what you’re used to include: [drool], [scream], [weep], [speechless], [funnyface], [laughwithtears], and [wicked].
