    Awesome! I didn't think this was going to be possible and was wondering how it was going to prevent you from doing so without knowing if they had a watch or not.

    Good news! It sends to the user and is animated and everything! Maybe this was common knowledge but I genuinely thought it wasn't 'compatible'.

    There's even a shaka! I was hoping so. They animated directly within the message thread, too.

    Nope. They are recognized as animated emojis.

    Apple is recognizing them as animated emojis on iOS, but they are gifs :)

    Yea I noticed there are still animated when sent to another iOS device. i also saw that when send to android device it's a big still pic, if u click on it then it's animated in its own window. You get the better expierence with iphone

    If someone sends you an animated emoji from their watch can you save it and send it to other people from your phone?
