You can now use the emoji’s from Android Nougat with SwiftKey Keyboard


Popular third-party keyboard option, SwiftKey, has just pushed an update to its stable version of the application which brings Unicode 8 emojis along with it. Unicode 8 was introduced alongside Android 7.0 Nougat and moved Android away from the blobs that graced our devices for years. Instead, our emojis are more realistic and feature round heads for the emoji that resembled people.

What’s new: 

  • Sync service fixed
  • Number, email and other predictions containing ‘@’ are turned back on. All previously learned number, email and @ predictions have been deleted but can now be relearned
  • Android N emoji are now supported
  • Diverse emoji now available. Long press select emoji to modify their skin tone

The update already hit the SwiftKey beta application for users a couple of weeks ago, but had yet to make its way to the stable version until today. As you would expect, these emoji’s are only available on devices that are running Android 7.0 Nougat and aren’t available for any other devices. However, if you’re a huge fan of SwiftKey and are running Android Nougat, go snag the update and take advantage of all the cool new emoji’s.
