This tutorial explains how to prevent Google Hangouts from displaying animated emojis in your conversations. Hangouts automatically converts text/word like "happy birthday
" or "yay
" into animated emojis and some users might find this feature annoying.
Open your web browser, connect to your Google+
account and click on Hangouts
icon displayed at the top right corner of your screen:
Scroll to Chat Options
and clear the Convert text to emoji
This new setting automatically applies to all your Hangouts conversations.
