For those churches that are using the bulk SMS features in UCare we wanted to share a quick tip on inserting emoji (e.g. 😃😍🤣🤷‍♂️👍✝) when using Windows 10 or macOS.

If you’d like to enable bulk SMS for your UCare account, please have a person with admin access visit Settings > SMS and request SMS activation. Alternatively, you can use the UCare app on your Android or iPhone to send SMS using the free credits included with your phone plan, and of course you can easily insert emoji on your smartphone.
