The addition of coloured emojis to the Unicode character set makes it easier for our less literate rabbit friends to send emails...

They're Unicode characters now, just like the letters A, א and 勇. Try having a look at the source text of the above photo; I can't guarantee, though, that your computer will have the fonts required to display them correctly installed. (Let me know if it works for you.)

It does not appear to work. I can right click and inspect but it does not bring me any further. It might not be for a normal Windows laptop computer.

You don't have the fonts required installed. Nor do I. But my work laptop does, as does aviva_m's smartphone.

Ten years ago, support for character sets beyond what is used in the most common European language was very limited; the situation is a lot lot better today. Ten years from now, every device is going to be able to show rabbit and carrot emojis and much much more.

Forget about my last comment. I did not see that you just said that it is not your phone. I thought maybe there is a free way to download them but I don't want to download lots of junk on top of it.

It looks like an O2 smart phone. I still have none. I thought you only get simple phones. My simple phone is a newer than the other but the only extra feature is the sd card slot where can use transferred mp3 files from the computer and play them on my phone and use them as ringtones or whatever. Otherwise it is for simple use. It is still no smart phone. I can't put photos on it and can't use emojis for texting.

It is a smartphone, but it's not mine!

Stick to it. I see many people who are busy with their smart phone all day long and don't see and hear anybody. I just find it hard to learn new technology and I am most of the time at home anyway. It is better not to be distracted on the street. You know what can happen.
