As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, there isn’t a built-in feature in most standard emoji keyboards or platforms that allows you to change the skin color of all emojis at once. Emoji skin tone selection is usually done on a per-emoji basis, which means you need to select the skin tone for each individual emoji you use.
However, if you want to use a specific skin tone for all emojis in a particular message or text, you can do so manually by selecting the desired skin tone for each emoji as you type them. Here’s how you can change the skin tone for individual emojis:
- Open the Emoji Keyboard: Depending on your device and messaging app, you can access the emoji keyboard by tapping the emoji icon on your keyboard or by using the dedicated emoji button within the messaging app.
- Select an Emoji: Choose the emoji you want to use from the emoji keyboard. For example, you might select a thumbs-up emoji (👍).
- Change the Skin Tone: Most emojis that have a human or body-related element can have their skin tone changed. To do this, tap and hold on the emoji you’ve selected. This will usually bring up a menu or pop-up with various skin tone options.
- Choose the Skin Tone: From the pop-up menu, select the skin tone you want to use for that emoji. The emoji will now appear with the chosen skin tone.
- Repeat as Needed: If you want to use the same skin tone for all emojis in your message, repeat this process for each emoji you include in the message.
Please note that the availability of different skin tones for emojis and the method for selecting them can vary depending on your device, operating system, and messaging app. Be sure to check your specific device’s instructions for the most accurate and up-to-date information on emoji usage.
Keep in mind that emoji skin tone options are meant to provide inclusivity and representation, allowing users to select the skin tone that best matches their own or their intended message. It’s a way to promote diversity and avoid any unintended implications or misinterpretations in emoji usage.
