Default [Q] Google Keyboard Emojis only on Hangouts

I wonder why the emojis only show up when I use the Hangouts app (use at as default for SMS) but not any other app in the system. Is there something I could install or flash to make the same emoji option appear on every app that has a keyboard capable funcition? Sorry in advance if I haven't seen a thread with my answer already (searched everywhere + google)
Why S5, why?

You have forgotten to let everyone know whether or not
you have already downloaded the Emoji keyboard?

If you have not yet installed an Emoji keyboard then here is the direct
download link to the playstore if you want to download and install the
Emoji Keyboard: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...keyboard&hl=en
(it's a free app)

Good luck
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

The one in my previous post is for all versions, if it's not compatible
with your rom or your phone the play store will not allow you to
download it......... I just edited my reply to you to include the
download link.

Good luck!

If you are on 4.4, then you will see the colored one that are in hangouts.
If you are on TouchWiz 4.3, you will see a touchwiz version of the colored ones.
If you are on 4.1 - 4.2 then you will see black and white emojis.
