They’ve been available on the beta for a bit now, but we’re excited to officially bring these new Android emoji to the market version of SwiftKey so everyone can finally text their friends images of levitating men and nerd faces.

What’s new?

Unicode’s 184 new emoji are now available on SwiftKey for Android – just make sure you are running Android 6.0.1. Check out a few of our favorites:

UpsideDownFace - New Android Emoji

Along with the new emoji, there were also changes to 48 existing emoji:

New Android Emoji - Poop




Pile of Poo – He looks a lot happier and a lot less stinky than before, doesn’t he?

FlushedFace - New Android Emoji




Flushed Face – Now looks a bit more embarrassed rather than soul-crushingly despaired.
