How is it I can see emoji sent from someone using a Samsung Galaxy S5, but when I try and send an emoji from my HTC One they can't see it?

My friend often sends me emoji from her Samsung Galaxy S5, and I can see them from my phone. However, anytime I try to send her an emoji from my HTC One, it appears as random symbols on her screen. Is there any way to fix this or send the message so she can receive them? Or are we simply out of luck?

The reason that your friend sees random symbols on her Samsung Galaxy S5 when you send her Emoji from your HTC One is because phone manufacturers often use their own versions of Emoji -- and they very rarely make them interoperable between brands. Put another way, your HTC One's stock Emoji may not be compatible with your friend's Samsung Galaxy S5. Thankfully, there are ways to fix this issue. You can, of course, follow the instructions in the great VisiHow guide below to install a dedicated SMS application that will take the place of the one you're using. However, if you want to be able to use compatible Emoji in any application that allows you to use Emoji at all, you will need to download an alternate keyboard. The most compatible keyboard available for Android at the moment is the Google Keyboard. Tap this link on your phone to download the Google Keyboard from the Play Store. Once the application installs, open it by searching through your applications and tapping the Google Keyboard icon. Follow the instructions, and then you'll be good: the Google Keyboard will be installed, and you'll be able to use Emoji that are compatible with your friend as long as she installs the same keyboard. Even if she doesn't, the Google keyboard will be more compatible with her Samsung Galaxy S5 than the stock HTC One keyboard.

I can't access my Emoji for twitter on my Galaxy S5?

The microphone icon is to the right of the space bar, and it does not open up a menu when tapped or held. Could it be that I am in the Swype keyboard mode?

Trying to find Emoji On a Samsung S5 running version 5.0. NO CUTE EMOJI?

I have a Samsung 5S with OS 5.0. I am trying to use the emoji but cannot figure this out. I followed your tutorial. The step that opens the emoji by clicking on the microphone is not there. There is one on the 123 menu that takes me to the emoji typed out on the keyboard. Not what I wanted, I want the cute faces. What do you do when this happens?. I have tried: Following the directions on several website.. I think it was caused by: NO Cause.
