Yes! Amazon Chime supports both emoticons and emojis across all chat types.

Chime provides an emoji picker with Unicode emoji on Windows, macOS, and Web clients and supports larger display when three or fewer emojis are used, conversion of shorthand emojis [like :) :P etc], skin tone variation, and support for emoji suggestions.

All Amazon Chime clients will auto-complete most face emoticons.

  • 8) results in a smiley face with sunglasses

Amazon Chime supports common emoji codes that follow the format :word: (colon word colon)

  • :fire: turns into a flame emoji
  • :sunny: turns into a sun emoji

To prevent auto-complete, add “/code” to the beginning of the text entry.

  • /code 8) does not result in a face with sunglasses.

/code also changes the text to a monospaced font and does not auto-complete URLS.

A good source of common emojis is available here:

The Amazon Chime web app provides extended support for emojis and animated .gif files. See the documentation for more details about the web application.
