Add custom emoji

By default, anyone can add custom emoji to a Zulip organization. Added emoji are available to all users.

Organization administrators can also change who can add custom emoji.

Add a custom emoji

  1. From your desktop, click on the gear () in the upper right corner.

  2. Select Manage organization.

  3. On the left, click Custom emoji.

  4. Under Add a new emoji, enter an emoji name.

    Emoji names can only contain a-z, 0-9, dashes (-), and spaces. Upper and lower case letters will be treated the same, and underscores (_) will be treated the same as spaces.

  5. Click Upload emoji and add an image or GIF. The image will automatically be scaled to 25x25 pixels.

  6. Click Add emoji.

Replace a default emoji

You can replace a default emoji by adding a custom emoji of the same name. If an emoji has several names, you must use the emoji's primary name to replace it. You can find the primary name of an emoji by hovering over it in the emoji picker, while the search box is empty (you may have to scroll down a bit to find it).

Delete a custom emoji

  1. From your desktop, click on the gear () in the upper right corner.

  2. Select Manage organization.

  3. On the left, click Custom emoji.

  4. Click the trash icon next to the emoji that you would like to delete.

Deleting an emoji will not affect any existing messages or emoji reactions. Anyone can delete custom emoji they added, and organization administrators can delete anyone's custom emoji.
