@Bunty69 Hi, That’s because emojis are picture message or for short MMS, MMS are not part of your contract and are chargeable.

How do I use the Google message like iMessage sorry but just switched to Android and I'm not impressed I can't send emojis without being charged it's ridiculous

iMessage is for Apples only.

Google are rolling out RCS to their messages app. If you see "Chat message" instead of "Text Message" when you go to message someone, you'll not be charged. It's like iMessage for android users.

@Bunty69 If you had a iPhone before and was using iMessage these use your data allowance. iMessage is an Apple only feature and this is not available on Android. iMessage is very much like what’s app but it’s built in to the text message app by Apple so when you message another iPhone and they’ve got iMessage enabled on their device it will go as an iMessage and not as a text message/picture
