I'd like to see an ability to use smileys with the standard keyboard in the standard SMS app.

It would also solve to see some smileys recieved from other people as they aren't displayed as they should be.

You mean a different keyboard just for the Messages app? Really? It's not too hard to switch to the emoji keyboard I'd think ...

You can already add some if you add them as additional keyboard in Keyboards section in Settings. Then you can swipe left on keys to change keyboard. Long press on space also works.

UPDATE: Settings -> Text input -> Keyboards -> then tap to add it and swipe left.

Note that you need at least version 3.0.0.

I'm not talking about switching keyboards. I can't seem to find where to enable Smileys in Settings -> Keyboard even though I scrolled down the entire list.

Is this something that Sailfish X lacks?

How would adding another keyboard help to add smileys to the standard keyboard?
