Google Solved the Problem of Emoji Incompatibility of Apps On Older Android Version

Tech giants frequently update their smartphone platforms in order to provide the latest technology to the users. When a version is updated there is a number of enhancements in features and attributes which were absent in the prior one. Google is ready to release its newest Android version with the most waited enhancements. There is a lot of difference among the different version Android and most annoying one for the users is emoji collection.

Google in their latest I/O conference shared the number of new features is going to share with the user via Android O. The collection also includes a new set of creative emoji with the upgrade Emoji 5.0. The new set of emoji will have huge number amazing and attractive emojis. However, if you are using an Android version prior the Android O the sent emoji top your device will show as an empty box.

This problem affects the user experience while using the emojis in the text when operating the app on the older version of the Android. Google has also found the solution to this issue for the developers with the introduction of EmojiCompact library. This library will help the developers to offer the full emoji experience to the user without any trouble across various Android versions. The Emojicompact library works comfortably with the Android 4.4 KitKat and above will replace the incompatible emoji with an appropriate image on the device. That Can understand like when from the other side someones sends a emoji which is undetectable by your version the library quickly translate it to relevant picture for you to understand.
 


The only issue with this solution of the Google is EmojiCompact is not a core function in the Android, every developer has to integrate it into their app individually.

Google has solved a problem related to the emoji, but still, there is some question about the EmojiCompact library. The first one is its pretty confusing as most of the users around the globe don't know much about using the emoji this way, they will get confused while sending something else and getting receive something different on the other hand. The other big question is what about sending the new emoji from the older Android version, is it possible to send these emoji with the help of EmojiCompact?

Let's hope a maximum number of the developers adopt this new Emoji Compact library to give all the users a better experience.
