    Even when I changed the emoji to my preferred color, whenever someone sends me a text with emoji in it, or I see it on Twitter, it is yellow. Is there any way to set the color across the OS?

    Thanks

    I think emoji work like fonts. When you send a yellow emoji, the recipient should see a yellow emoji. When you send a black emoji, the recipient should also see a black emoji. What kind of emoji you see depends on which one the sender used, not on which one you’d prefer to see. The yellow emoji are used as defaults for backwards compatibility, presumably to avoid any unnecessary misunderstandings.

    Was wondering the same thing myself. The yellow ones just look odd now.

    Any idea why the family emojis are not changing skin/hair? The ones with the mix adults and kids.

    Probably because there would be too many family options. The families emojis would have to have unlimited options in regards to skin tones, etc for each family member.
