Android 6.0.1 Delivers Improved Set of Emoji
Google is making Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow available to Nexus handsets starting today. The minor system update chiefly adds support for Unicode 8.0, which expands the selection of emoji significantly. Some of the emoji include food, hand gestures, sports, and weather. The update also adds a new keyboard, new font, and new code. Google said it gave the updated system code to its handset partners, but it is up to them to choose whether or not to use it. Android 6.0.1 will reach the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P phones in waves.
