SpeakEmoji App Translates Spoken Words Into Emojis [VIDEO]

SpeakEmoji app translates spoken words to emojis.

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock at the edge of the jungle, you can’t help but notice that 2015 has been the year that emojis took over. Oxford Dictionary chose an emoji as the “word” of the year, there’s now an emoji keyboard because, priorities, and you’re an emoji away from a pizza arriving at your front door. Last but not least, there’s even an emoji movie in the works. If you’re still playing catchup and trying to find the right words animation to say what you mean, SpeakEmoji is the new app that will help you get with the times.

Available for iOS, Android, and the web, SpeakEmoji is an app tailored for grown folks looking to communicate in Emoji as proficiently as the youth. Aiming to be the Rosetta Stone for emoticons, SpeakEmoji translates spoken words into emoji form. The app should be especially helpful for parents who haven’t the slightest clue what all those icons and symbols on their kids’ screens even mean.

Watch the SpeakEmoji instructional video above to learn all about the app and then try it out for yourself here. The SpeakEmoji app is available in the App Store and via Google Play.
