Add custom emoji

Emoji are fun, but they're functional too! Use them to enhance your messages, react to activity, or with the Reacji channeler app to copy messages. Whatever your needs might be, you can customize your workspace by creating your own custom emoji. ✨

Note: Some workspaces may choose to restrict custom emoji uploads to Workspace Owners or Admins. If you’re unable to upload custom emoji, contact a Workspace Owner for help.


Create a custom emoji

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Select Customize Slack from the menu.
  3. Click Add Custom Emoji, then Upload Image to select a file.
  4. Choose a name. The name you pick is what you’ll enter to display the emoji in Slack.
  5. Click Save.

Note: Images can be JPG, GIF, or PNG. You’ll get the best results with a small, square picture, as Slack will resize the image.

Tip: You can't create custom emoji in our mobile apps, but you can still use custom emoji by typing the code.
