Why can't I see the latest emoji in SwiftKey Keyboard for Android?

SwiftKey needs to rely on the system font, so we can only render what's available on the system, to make sure it can be shown on each device's screen.
 
Why can I see the latest emoji in messaging apps like WhatsApp?
 
The reason that you can see the latest emoji when using WhatsApp's own emoji, for example, is because apps like this include their own font within them. This means that the right emoji gets rendered on the other end because both users have the same messaging app on the keyboard.
