Emoji peculiarities

  1. Emoji support relies on the edition of the system, so the sent symbol may not be displayed on the recipient’s screen. For instance, if you send a character added to the last version of Unicode to an old device that does not ensure this symbol, an empty square will arise on the screen.
  2. Many messaging applications have a kit of emoji that works exclusively in these applications. Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, Hangouts, Snapchat, and other applications include emoji that can be used and which by default may not be supported by your gadget.
  3. Android versions up to 4.1 (Jelly Bean) do not provide emoji at all, and Android versions up to 4.4 (KitKat) support only black and white characters. In earlier releases of Android, emoji are not displayed.
  4. The set (number) and type of emoji rely on the edition of the Android system used. Emoji is a system font, so it needs system support to employ and view it.
  5. Update the system to increase the number of characters it supports.
