It all depends on the browser, email client and device your reader is using. Different operating systems render emojis differently, hence, a different outcome. How emojis are displayed on mobile depends on what the device supports.
General things to remember:
- If a reader uses Gmail web clients, emojis are mostly shown in Gmail-style, regardless of the operating system (OS)
- Most mobile devices display emojis without any issues
- Subscribers that use Windows 8.1 or up will see your emojis (in color)
- Most Mac laptop and desktop users will see emojis (supported from Mac OS X Lion (10.7) onwards)
- Desktop and laptop users with Windows XP will not see emojis but squares ▢
Email clients that are known to display emojis are:
- Outlook (2007/2010/2013)
- Apple Mail
- Yahoo! Mail
- Android Mail
- Windows Mail
Outlook for Windows and Yahoo! Mail can show simplified black and white versions of emojis, while Gmail takes their own designed approach. Normally mobile devices adjust an emoji’s look to match their brand image.
