We already posted about the Android N Developer Preview and how you can easily obtain it on your Android device using the OTA sign up program or by flashing the full factory images. Google introduced many new features and functionalities with the Android N Developer preview and revealed some plans for the upcoming Android source code. Along with the Preview and Unicode version 9 and 10, came new emojis as well. For the first time ever, the Android OS holds more emojis than the iOS or any other operating system. Unfortunately, not all Android devices run on the Android N and not all the smartphones will be able to see or use the emojis from the latest Unicode. However, developers have extracted the Unicode module and can be flashed onto any rooted devices that enable us to see and use the Android N emojis.
The only downside about this procedure is that it does not embed all the Android N emojis into your device’s keyboard or system. Although you will be able to see the new emojis, to use them you will need to copy them from emojipedia website and paste it into your chat. Google’s Android N post quotes: “New people emoji with support for skin tones, and new Unicode 9 glyphs. Skin tone and new emoji will not show up until keyboards build support for them in the palette. Apps should not need to take any action to take advantage of these new emoji, unless the apps use a non-system font. IME developers need to incorporate support for the new emoji.”

Warning: Please back up your font in /system/fonts/NotoColorEmoji.ttf prior to flashing. Also, take a Nandroid backup before you proceed. Reader’s discretion is advised.
