Do you support Emoji in SMS?

Inbound SMS/MMS

Available soon. We will support Emoji characters for inbound SMS/MMS. Subscribe to this feature request here.

Emojis will be overwritten to '????' until we are able to support them.

Outbound SMS

Available soon. Subscribe to this feature request here.

At this stage we don't support Emoji for outbound messages. Emoji characters take up far more space in the number of allowed characters in a message. Also, as soon as you use an Emoji character, your allowed character limit is reduced to 70 characters instead of 160. This is a network limitation affecting all providers in all countries (not a ClickSend limitation).

If you have a project that requires Emoji for outbound messages, please let us know - we might be able to enable it on your account.
