Emojis and stickers are constantly expanding on various texting and chatting applications, so Google Allo's new 'Smart Smiley' feature makes it easier to cut through the brush and find the perfect pictogram. Smart Smiley constantly analyzes what Google Allo users are typing and draws up a changing lists of emoji to help users get creative with their conversations.

According to Google's blog, people only use about three percent of the total emoji stock on average. This leaves literally hundreds of characters languishing in the obscurity of deep keyboard pages. Smart Smiley lets users break away from these limited patterns and explore the full range of emojis and stickers.

Google Allo will now come with the Smart Smiley button on the keyboard. Whenever the user thinks its time for an emoji, they can press the button and the app will analyze the written text to find the best options.
