MSU, Snaps launch first official custom emoji keyboard in college athletics

Staff Writer

Mississippi State Athletics has partnered with Snaps to become the first collegiate athletic department to launch an official, custom emoji keyboard available now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
Fans can share their Bulldog pride around the world with over 40-plus custom emojis, stickers and GIFs featuring Mississippi State logos, landmarks and traditions to which additional content will be added monthly. The free download is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for “Hail State Emoji Keyboard.”
The keyboard works anywhere image pasting is supported, including messaging apps such as iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, email and more. As of now, due to limitations with the Twitter and Instagram platforms, image pasting is not supported in tweets or posts but can be used in Twitter direct messaging. Work continues to fully deploy the custom “Hail State Emoji Keyboard” for use with those platforms.
Snaps is the first end-to-end platform for brand marketing across messaging applications and devices. The company partnered with the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks to launch the first official emoji keyboard in professional sports in May.
