About Google Emojis

Google emoji images are used on stock Android devices (such as Nexus or Pixel phones), Gmail Web Interface, Google Hangouts, and ChromeOS. These are provided as part of the Noto Emoji project.

Platform vendors such as SamsungLG and HTC use their own emoji images. WhatsApp displays Apple emoji images on Android, instead of these emojis.

Android 7.1 Nougat was released on October 20, 2016 and includes full support for Emoji 4.0.
