Unity5 Emoji support?

I’m creating some apps in Unity for school, and I am unable to type in Emoji into a text field. Is there support for this, or do I have to use an emoji supported font?

Hi, I would do this the same way controller buttons icons are added to a text (i.e. the press “X” to continue of playstation games). Using the rich text capability, you can use a tag “quad” that can render a quad/sprite from a specific material/texture with custom UV etc… This is interesting because this way, you could still use any font.

I would analyze the text from the input and convert the “:-)” and other combinations to “quad” tags.
