To execute these commands on Android Messages, just type a forward slash and then the word you want to use. It is worth noting that these only work in the starting of the message.

Here are some that we were able to create using the shortcuts;

  • /shrug or /shruggie — ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • /sunglasses or /dealwithit — ( •_•) ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■)
  • /tableflip — (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
  • /tableback — ┬─┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ
  • /that — (☞゚ヮ゚)☞
  • /this — ☜(゚ヮ゚☜)
  • /wizard — (∩ ` -´)⊃━━☆゚.*・。゚
  • /yuno — ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
  • /success — (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑
  • /happy — ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
  • /facepalm— (-‸ლ)
  • /disapprove — ಠ_ಠ
  • /algebraic — | ( •◡•)| (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)
