    Title:
    using emojis in webchat
    Content:

    I've tried adding smiley emojis in OBotML but that doesn't work. But in the docs it says that the Web SDK supports it. How should we encode it?

      What do you mean "doesn't work" - you mean it doesn't appear?  Or the Bot doesn't understand it?

        For example:

        emojistate:
          component: 'System.Output"
          properties:
            text: "Hi smiley!"
            keepTurn: true
          transitions:
            next: "hiBack"

         If I enter this into OBotML console, it throws an error. I'm using Win + . dialog window to insert the emoji.

        Grant what's the dev team stance on emojis, are you guys looking into this? Emojis are strong tools in marketing funnels as users are more likely to click buttons that have emojis in it. Would be good if we could use them in ODA.
