Now while the new emoji updates may soon start to roll out on probably other versions of android smartphone users, waiting can be dangerous too. Thus having known how eagerly people tends to be anticipating for this feature, the geeks over there at Gadget Hacks decided to create a flashable ZIP that will bring Nougat’s new emojis to almost any device. As they’ve stated, these emojis were pulled directly from the latest Nougat preview build, and they replace your existing emojis on a system level, so they’re as up-to-date as it gets, and they’ll work with any app.
