The SwiftKey Beta has been updated with support for the new emoji that came with the Android 6.0.1 system update. Some of the new emoji include the famed taco emoji, unicorn, burrito, and many others.

There’s some bad news for those that aren’t on Android 6.0.1, though. The SwiftKey Beta is receiving initial support for the new emoji, but since the emoji has been added in Android 6.0.1, users not on that version won’t see it in the SwiftKey Beta or the stock keyboard.

This news comes not long after the Internet exploded with excitement over more emoji coming to iOS 9, specifically the taco emoji. Not long after, Google responded, promising to offer more emoji options in Android 6.0.1, and they’ve delivered.

In addition to the SwiftKey Beta getting support for the emoji, it’s also been updated with bug fixes and some performance enhancements. There were previously issues with emoji predictions as well as Flow through space not working when trying to Flow through more than 4 words. Those problems have been resolved in this update.

The SwiftKey Beta is available to download on the Play Store, with the latest update available at the link below.
