    How can I get Hangouts to display a smiley icon rather than a ascii characters.
    I love to use the emoji's and really like those little blob smilies but many of my contacts still send me the classics :) :p ;-) etc...
    is there a way to have those displayed as icons? ether in the settings, downloading some kind of app or some other way?

    Thanks

    Hi and Welcome to the forums

    Really you need to get your friends to send you smilies using hangouts or similar rather than Ascii characters. It's not something they can do with simple sms apps. Hangouts can only display what is sent!

    Hopes this helps ;)
