Info 2 Emojis problem on SMS app

Here's my problem. I have my Nexus 4 on stock rom (just updated to 4.4.2), since y update to 4.4 I can't see emojis on sms apps when I receive a message with an emoji in it, I can just write them. E.x If I send a sms to my gf with them she can see the emoticons in her iphone, but when she reply to me, i can't. I just get symbols or question marks. What can I do? What's the problem.

Btw, the problem is just in sms apps Hangouts and Sms stock app. I can perfectly see color emojis on Instagram and Twitter, my problem is sms app.

I think social network apps like those have universal emoticons for all mobile OSes. Since iOS and Android don't use the same emoticons for SMS, they won't appear. I wouldn't think that you would be able to use emoticons like that even before 4.4.2 .

It has happened to me every time, on 4.3, 4.4. and 4.4.1, with every app. But finally I discovered Chomp SMS, which is very good, I'll recommend it for a lot of other features too.
