Android now has official emojis

Hey guys so today my gs3 got the updated version of hangouts. I set it to be my default SMS app. And to my surprise the emojis that the hangouts app uses, still carry over SMS. By this I mean that when I send a text to someone with an iPhone the emojis show up on their iphone. This is absolutely wonderful for android. We no longer have to deal with receiving ugly black and white emojis, and it makes it much easier to send them to other people. We don't have to download messaging apps with sub par performances anymore,or root our phones to cyanogen mod. Emojis are finally supported by android. This is amazing.
