When, in October, Apple introduced the iOS 9.1 update, it became known that the new emoticons appear in the operating system. Many Android users began to wonder how soon they will be able to see the smiles on their new devices.
Android Head Division, Hiroshi Lokheymer assured that they are working to solve this issue, but more details became known only now.

Lokheymer in his Twitter-account posted a message that states that the new emoticons with new fonts will appear in Android next week.
New emoticons will appear in the form of a system upgrade for owners of Nexus 5, 5X, 6, 6P, 7 (2013), 9, and Player.
Lokheymer also wrote that the OEM-manufacturers will update their devices after the delivery of fonts and tehnicheskie details.
It is not known how many of the 250 “official” smileys will be included in the update, but probably we will see most of them.
Also know the exact date when we will see the update, but we hope that the update will start to spread in the environment, when traditionally updated Google Apps.
