About Google Emojis

Google emoji images are used on stock Android devices (such as Pixel phones), Gmail Web Interface, Google Hangouts, and ChromeOS. These are provided as part of the Noto Emoji project. These images are also used for Slack on non-Apple platforms including Windows, Linux, and Android.

Platform vendors such as SamsungLG and HTC use some or all of their own emoji images. Apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook use their own emoji images, while Signal and Telegram for Android use Apple emoji images.

New emojis were released by Google as part of Android 9.0 Pie in August 2018. A beta for Android Q previews some upcoming emojis for 2019.
