Instagram launches new emoji quick access panels

Instagram is adding a quick emoji bar to its app. Now, with an update to iOs and Android, whenever the keyboard is invoked in comments, users will be able to see their most widely used emoji. The feature has apparently been in public testing in May, but the firm only widely rolled it out last week.

Instagram’s Direct app also features this emoji bar for direct messages and has recently undergone a slight design refresh as the firm continues to build it out.
