    Welcome to Android Central
    Have you updated your S4 recently? Emojis are now fully supported on Android, so the only way to go back would be to downgrade. That's not possible if you're phone is on 4.3 or later

    I've only taken the mandatory updates. I even tried resetting my phone to factory settings and still had the same issue. I guess the black & white robots are gone for good then?

    Yeah, those would likely be 4.3 or 4.4.2
    Factory resetting doesn't roll back firmware upgrades
