We often use emojis to express the situations. Nearly every single emoticon has been redesigned. Furthermore, Android O now supports the entire catalogue of emojis in the Emoji 5.0 Unicode standard.

Android emojis looks dull when compared to that of WhatsApp and Facebook ones. Now with Android O, they got the much-needed reiteration. Back in Android Nougat release, Google has added some new emojis as well.

Every one of us can’t experience Developer preview due to lack of any of the supported Google devices.
