Hangouts SMS not showing emoticons

    I have a Nexus 5 with Kitkat 4.4.2 and have the Hangouts app as the SMS app. My friend has an Samsung Galaxy S Relay and also uses Hangouts app as SMS app. Whenever we send SMS to each other with emoticons, emoticons are not converted, instead we just see the text code for it. I'm baffled by this since we're using the same app for texting. I'd understand if it was like from an iPhone to Android, or something like that.

    Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix it?

    Yea the weird thing is it happens on both of our phones. It's like when we send the emoticon it looks good, but when the other person receives it, it only shows text value for the emoticon. Grrrrr Could it be the difference in OS versions maybe?

    It could be I have a friend or has a s3 and I have a gnex similar software and we can see the emojis. Does it work with any one else

    Well I tried it with someone on iPhone and it worked. Granted on iPhone, it shows iPhone icons rather than hangouts ones, but it still converted the text into icons.
