Emojis in email subject and SMS & WeChat messages
Emojis are symbol Unicode characters that are used for smileys / text customization. These are the characters you can add in text messages, chat conversations, etc.
Emojis in email subjects
_/!\ Please note that Google Chrome currently does not support Emojis. /!\_
That means that to be able to create/edit subject lines containing Emojis, users will need to use Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Some Chrome extensions (like Chromoji or Emojify) allow to display Emojis but they are not really reliable so we don’t recommend their use.
However, a lot of webmails replace emojis with nice images themselves (as you can see in the screenshot above) : so even with Chrome, you’ll see the emojis properly in Gmail when receiving your messages.
Emojis in SMS messages
You can also display emojis in SMS messages.
_/!\ Emojis count for 2 characters. /!\_
You must select the option Unicode when you write your message to allow special characters (but limited to 70 characters). If you do not select this option, emojis will not be displayed.
Be careful, some operators do not support emojis (e.g.: Bouygues Telecom in France), so you have to test your SMS message with different operators before you send it.
Emojis in WeChat
All emojis can be used in WeChat messages and should be displayed correctly.
However, it is strongly recommended to test all WeChat designs containing emojis to make sure that they are rendered as expected.
