This is becoming more and more essential. Even in the past 6 months, I've noticed a significant increase in their use outside of text messages.

It’s not quite clear what this issue is actually about. It could be asking which color font format a browser/platform supports (or if any, see http://stateofwebtype.com/), whether variations selectors 15/16 (U+FE0E/F) work correctly, which characters have emoji glyphs in default fonts, which emoji sequences (UTS#51) are supported, whether non-BMP Unicode characters are supported at all etc.

#2173 mentions http://caniemoji.com.

JFTR, there are (at least) 4 OTF solutions available:

  • Microsoft’s standardized COLR/CPAL tables use standard True Type glyf or Postscript CFF  outlines. #2458
  • Mozilla’s/Adobe’s standardized SVG  table uses SVG outlines and CSS Variables. #2555
  • Google’s standardized CBDT/CBLC tables use embedded PNG chunks. #1018
  • Apple’s proprietary now standardized sbix table embeds complete images, usually PNGs. #1018
