I can post [ ✨😜✨] emojis in an SE question from the iOS App.

enter image description here

What is the result for users without the emoji character set?

  • From the app my [✨😜✨] emojis remain visible.

  • @nicael pretty sure, other questions load just fine. Jun 24, 2014 at 7:48
  • @Sha This is... this must be celebrated! And you don't see my comments? My beautiful forest? Flowers? Food? And you are using iPhone 4S?

  • @nicael if you can recreate it there, it might be an important step in fixing a bug that could seriously get out of hand

    @nicael will you please reproduce that exact forest comment in this question for debugging purposes.

  • Emojis are actually default on all Apple products, so anyone with an Apple product can type them anywhere. And therefore see them if they're from someone else. It'll depend on whether you're using a system that has unicode Emojis installed. Mar 11, 2016 at 5:09

    Windows and Ubuntu probably lack support. Since emojis became so popular with iPhone, I bet Mac added support so that their cloud sharing of notes and docs wouldn't look bad.

  • @jt0dd true, and everyone can download the font if they want, but it's not available by default. Jun 24, 2014 at 7:28
  • Ahem, windows and ububntu don't count :D

(This might be related to a browser's preference for a specific font type, like Apple Advanced Technology, Microsoft OpenType or OpenType PostScript.)

  • Is this still an issue? 🀨 I've been linked to this 4-year-old post as evidence that emoji shouldn't be used. I thought only legacy systems still had this problem. Apr 12, 2018 at 7:03
  • @RubelliteFae totally, I see squares in your comment even on my mobile device. (LG4) So all in all, emojis will never be supported fully, each OS will have its own set. Apr 12, 2018 at 7:31
  • @ShadowWizard That is very odd. Emojipediaβ€”which is admittedly not a great source for correct info, but at least they have complete infoβ€”says that LG3 and new all have support ( emojipedia.org/lg ). I'm surprised to hear that Unicode will never be fully supported. Thank you Apr 12, 2018 at 7:45

  • Yikes, I added a line break. I didn't notice because of the app, but I'm sure the formatting gods got a little angry..

  • Now if you go take the screen-shot of your Mac screen-shot from Windows and explain the difference between platform support, you'll have a pretty cool 4 level answer.
