I'm just getting to grips with Lollipop on my new Vodafone Smart Prime phone.  Question: when using the standard Google keyboard, what are the three dots that appear under words for?  They always seem to appear under the middle work.

In the example below the word "Dark" just above the keyboard has the three dots that I'm talking about.

Long press and it will give you more suggestions.

Interesting to see your prime has LTE listed instead of 4G - and no operator name in the status bar. Neat.

NikT: Long press and it will give you more suggestions.

Thanks for that, I didn't think to long press on it.

The screen shot I included wasn't of my phone, it was just one I found online that showed the three dots.

Another question, according to some articles I've read I should be able to get the Google keyboard to suggest emoji pics for words, see http://webcazine.com/13530/android-5-0-lollipop-how-to-enable-emoji-suggestions-in-google-keyboard/

But when I follow those instructions I don't get "Emoji for English words" as an option.

Is there any way I can add this in or activate it some other way?
