This is normally the case, but a small check never hurts.
To do this, just type ‘Emoji’ or ‘Emojis’ into Google.
No matter the browser you’re using at this point.
If you see lots of small figurines in the search results, then your Sony Xperia XZ is well capable of reading emojis.
If this is not the case, then your smartphone is not set to play them. We invite you to download third-party applications such as WhatsApp or Viber so you can play with emojis.
However, in this case only these applications will be able to read the emojis: emojis set in classic messages can not be read for instance.
