    Apple emojis show as a rectangle with an "X" for Android devices, It is really annoying because my friends will text me an emoji of how they are feeling, and I don't even know what they sent me. I also don't know the tone of their message. For example:

    Friend: "......🖾"
    "?" : Me
    Friend: "Wow rude"

    Friend has left the chat

    I didn't know what the box meant, and thought it was just an emoji. I thought one of my friends sent me a box emoji for no reason, but was actually the "🥺" emoji. The same happened with the "🥰" emoji.

    If there is a reason they haven't created android versions of these, please tell me. I really need them, all my friends have Apple devices.

    Apple has done as Apple does and has not adapted to industry standard emoji characters. Android/Google/messaging app developers also may not be allowed to include those due to copyright issues.

    Welcome to Android Central! Geez, what kind of friend does that? Pretty shallow, if you ask me. But not surprising these days.

    Not surprising these days or not surprising from an Apple user??? I kid. Sorta...

    Anyway, to the OP, if you think about mustang7757 and hallux are probably right on the money. Apple likes to encapsulate its world, I guess to set itself apart or maybe just to control its users, either way look at iMessages. There are still compatibility issues across platform. And so far Apple seems unwilling to change that so to answer your question Android will probably never display Apple emojis.

    Best wishes with your "friend".

    Both. In my experience, iPhone users often assume that everyone else has an iPhone, and are oblivious to any difference in platforms. And the younger digital generation has little idea how to communicate or interpret tone (or doesn't give a rat's patootie about it).

    For global use by all apps on the phone, emojis belong to the operating system. As new emojis get added to the official list of emojis by The Committee, the additions then need to be added to the OS of the phone. Apple adds the new emojis often during the minor OS updates like 13.1 to 13.2. The Android world seems to add them only during the major OS updates like 9.x to 10.0.

    Some of the messaging apps try to keep up with Apple by using their own emoji system, which only works within that messaging app. Textra is one of the SMS apps that does this.
