Now, open-source platform emojidex offers emojis as service

Now, a new project, named emojidex, is offering emojis as a service that allows developers to share new emojis with each other and add them to their apps and websites.

Washington: Now, a new project, named emojidex, is offering emojis as a service that allows developers to share new emojis with each other and add them to their apps and websites.

Founder Rei Kagetsuki said that the open-source platform was the first service that allowed anyone to register their own emojis and added that emojidex set itself apart by being the only platform that focused on emojis as graphic characters, instead of stickers, reported TechCrunch.

The service also lets creators apply copyright locks to emojis, thereby barring developers from using those images in commercial content without getting a license.

Kagetsuki said that the project will add more features to emojis in order to make them more interactive.

The service currently has its own Chrome extension and Android app.
