Can I Send Out Emojis?

Found in: Messages

At this time, there is no option to send out emojis using the SlickText platform. SlickText follows the GSM standard for available characters that are able to be sent in outbound text messages using a shortcode. GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communications and is the network standard for much of the world. This network defines the characters that are able to be sent out via mass text.

The current available characters that can be use are alpha-numeric and symbols. Accents, foreign languages, emojis/emoticons, or other non GSM characters are not able to be used.
