Emojis have evolved to become so much more than just a way of communicating in a fun way. Apple took the higher spot when it released several iPhone Emojis that didn’t show up on Android devices until Nougat came along. Now the Android Nougat Emojis are going one step further with Unicode 9.0.

You can either choose to wait for the Android Nougat update or try out the workaround that we have to offer. By flashing a .ZIP file to your device, you can get the Android Nougat Emojis on any device right away. All you need is a device running Android 5.0 or higher and a custom recovery installed.

Step 1: Download the Android Nougat Emojis .ZIP file

Since the latest Emojis for Android is not yet available for any other device, you need to manually flash them to your device. You can use the link given below to download the Nougat Emojis .ZIP file and flash it to your device.
