10 new emojis Android users need

thelist new emoji primary

Android is a little behind the times when it comes to emoji—while the standard Google keyboard does feature them, they’re not nearly as prominent as they are in Apple’s emoji keyboard. Maybe that’s because there aren’t enough Android-friendly emoji, though. Where’s my SD card emoji? Or the ten dessert-themed Android version emoji?

Here are 10 emoji Android users would totally use (maybe):

MicroSD card emoji

Use this when your iOS friends ask you which iPhone they should buy – the 64GB or the 128GB.

“What’s that? I can’t hear you over all my cheap extra storage space.”

Alarm volume emoji

For when your friend’s iPhone alarm goes off at full volume and they need to turn it down.
