Android Will Eventually Catch Up On Emojis.

In a recent Twitter post Google’s vice president Hiroshi Lockheimer has finally written what Android users have been hoping to hear for a long period of time: Emojis characters will soon populate Android.With the release of iOS 9.1, not only did Apple address several bugs within the operating system, but it also seems that they have introduced new wallpapers and emojis. Whether the announcement was in response to Apple’s recent iOS 9.1 release or not, Android users are, nonetheless, happy they can use the much-awaited Emojis.

Earlier this week Apple debuted iOS 9.1 with over 150 new emoji for iPhone owners, but it looks like Android users will soon be able to enjoy the same treat. For those of you, who may not yet be familiar with the new version of emoticons, Emojis are brief sequences from famous Hollywood productions that can be sent during chats and online conversations. On Twitter late last night, Lockheimer confirmed that the new emojis from Unicode 7 and 8 — the ones that Apple just pushed to iOS devices in version 9.1 of its mobile OS — are on their way… This tweet probably comes in indirect response to a Reddit thread from yesterday, complaining about the fact that Google is quite often playing catch up when it comes to the adorable faces and icons. This week iOS received a huge update and millions of iPhone users were happy to learn that they now have over 150 additional emoji characters on the default keyboard. Although they may seem completely useless for Internet users, who like to keep their conversations short and simples, analysts argue that it is always important to have Emojis.

In a tweet by Google’s SVP of Android Hiroshi Lockheimer, it seems that he has heard your demands and promised that more emojis will be making its way onto Android. The Mountain View company was slower to introduce an emoji keyboard after Apple introduced it to Japan in iOS 2, and finally brought it international with iOS 5. It’s not clear at this point which version of Android will be getting the taco, the middle-finger, and the burrito, but it’s likely going to happen before Google releases Android 7.0 next year.

It is not just a matter of whether Android customers use Emojis or not, is a case of staying up to date with whatever the Internet has been going on lately. Analysts, however, think the recent attention that Google decided to pay to Emojis has a lot to do with Apple’s decision to improve Emojis and to insert the famous taco Emoji. For the most part, emoji aren’t all that fun on Android, and most end up adding an expansion app from the Play Store to get access to everything available on the iPhone.

His tweet confirms that they’ve received all the feedback and appreciate the response from users, that they’re “on it”, and ends by saying sorry. Instead, a nice new emoji would do the trick, or at least be much more efficient in describing a certain feeling, expression, action, food, job, or virtually everything else under the sun.
