Office Emoji look different on other devices

A few days ago, we talked about Outlook for Windows belated discovery of real emojis.  As with all emoji matters, what the receiver sees can vary a lot.

This isn’t Microsoft’s fault.  It’s in the complex nature of emoji with different fonts etc.

The ‘take away’ is that emoji’s are great but keep in mind that they might not appear in exactly the same way as you do.

Here’s what we sent to various devices from the latest Outlook 2016 for Windows.
