    Hello Everybody

    I have observed that iOS 8 Beta, the emoji's don't use standard compliant unicode characters or smileys such :) :( etc etc or recognizing those.
    Instead they use property format which iDevices can only interpret.

    Please of let me know your findings.

    Weren't there some Emoji that were added recently by whoever sets the Emoji sets? Maybe Apple have added them to the beta and non-8 devices will just have to get an update before they can see them. It is a standard, but just because it's a standard doesn't mean that it's magically added to every device in the world when they're defined.

    Both of you are wrong.

    @ bushido
    The emoji seen by Nexus 4 might be inserted by older version of iOS than 8.

    @ sammich

    I am not using the new emoji's
    I am using the old emoji's only.
    The emoji's i am using is very simple.

    The receiving device has to support emoji. It isn't an Apple only thing.

    Both devices have to support Emoji. I can text my cousin emoji's because his device supports them, and even on iOS 8.
