    [A long one, I'm sorry ๐Ÿ™. I apologise for the amount of brackets and use of the Oxford comma] Let's face it, the android emojis are rubbish, the lack of skin tone modifiers, updates to latest unicode, or compatability with other emoji types is pants. I like the ios emojis, they have one simple face shape (a circle, I know, crazy concept) rather than this ugly bunch ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ™ and although they don't follow the unicode specification exactly they are more widely accepted and seem important to Apple. Apple have spent a lot of time attracting the type of people who use their phones daily, purely to be social, the people who enjoy using odd snapchat filters, tweet about iphone updates, and have group chats on fb messenger, you know, young people ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I don't think google necessarily needs to adapt to this market (after all they have users, and I love android for a reason) but catering for it can only be a positive and it starts with the basics of messaging, so why the rubbish emojis, will there be updates in marshmallow, or will I be forced to root or used partially unsupported WhatsApp to utilise a service that Google is supposed to be a part of (the unicode consortium)? I'm not looking for ios emojis, just ones that fit in, can be recognised from their other OS counterparts, and are updated.

    tl,dr: mostly ranting, will future updates give ios like emojis, or at least proper updates to the emojis?

    I think Google will stay with the Google emoji. You may be used to manufacturer styled emoji if you use something like a Samsung, HTC, LG, etc. The stock emojis aren't that bad but it really is a matter of opinion. I personally like the stock Google emoji way better than Apple's.
