Install Android Oreo for the New Emojis

One of the best reasons to install the Nexus 5X Android Oreo update right away is for the new, redesigned emoji characters. If you love sending out emojis to friends and family, you're probably going to love the changes in Android 8.0. 

Android 8.0 Oreo delivers over 60 new emoji characters for your device's keyboard. New emoji characters include a dinosaur, an exploding head, a wizard, and a fairy. 

On top of that, just about every emoji character has been redrawn and improved. Yes, those yellow blobs are finally gone and in their place is an experience that's similar (design-wise) to the one found in Apple's iOS for iPhone and iPad. 

It's a huge improvement from the emojis found in Android Nougat and it's a great reason to make the move up to Oreo in the near future.
