    Hi,
    Unlike other keyboards, SwiftKey uses system default (built-in) emoji to assure the full compatibility. Maybe you have experienced that some special emojis are represented by a square symbol, or went to black/white lines. Those are because the emoji are not supported by the system properly.

    Please switch back to the default font or OEM official released font (like the fonts in HTC Theme Store if you have an HTC phone) to prevent the problem.

    Thank you.

    Perhaps I did not explain my issue clearly enough. I have updated the system font (NotoColorEmoji.ttf) to the latest EmojiOne font (version 3.1), which supports the latest Unicode 5.0 emojis (e.g., exploding head, dinosaur, cricket, and others). The Swiftkey built-in emoji selector that shows after long-pressing the enter key does NOT include these new emoji whereas the Google GBoard DOES include these emoji. There is no issue with the display of emoji, but rather choosing the new emoji - they are simply not available.

    I understood your issue and explained it. SwiftKey does not support changing system font to change emoji. It will use the emoji in the original font of the system even if you tried to update it. Emoji support does not simply mean changing the font, it's deeply supported by Android version. If you have Android 6.0 then installed the font and emoji from Android 7.0, other keyboard may show these things, but SwiftKey shows always the emoji of Android 6.0 unless you update to 7.0. This is for preventing compatibility problem.

    I'm not going to argue any further. The system emoji font is very easily changed out on a rooted device; it's not "deeply supported". Swiftkey is not enumerating the additional emoji, GBoard is. Obviously Google's people know how to do that and maintain backwards compatibility.

    True, system font is easily to be changed of rooted. But most users don't root their phones, the majority users are not geeks. SwiftKey does not want to give users an impression that it encourages people to root their device to have more function and meanwhile exposed their device in potential danger.
