It would be nice to have system wide support for Emoji.
- Allow inputting emoji.
- Emoji input should be more prominent in places where it is common, such as chat and email. However, it should be possible everywhere.
- Input with a variety of input devices: keyboard, pointing device, touchscreen.
- Support displaying emoji wherever text is displayed.
- Animated emoji
For design of emoji characters themselves, see /Artwork.
