Official Description: Core library to enable emoji compatibility in Kitkat and newer devices to avoid the empty emoji characters.
This library, and the others in
androidx.emoji, exist to try to offer a
continuously-updated set of emoji for apps to use. Otherwise, you wind up
with device-supplied emoji from device-supplied fonts, and they may not cover
This specific library offers widgets, like
EmojiEditText, for working with
Google-supplied sources of emoji.
Most of the material on emoji compatibility is on the former Android Support Library packages. The artifacts and imports are different, but much of the functionality should be the same.
