I'd really like to be able to use emoji's in my subject headings.  Can you please add this function?  Thanks!

I have to say, as  a new user I'm shocked this is buried on some back page for people to vote. CC - obviously your stance is incorrect as more and more and more companies are using icons in the subject line. Here we are, Valentine's day email and I can insert a heart. Are you kidding me? You need to seriously upgrade your service which is the real issue.

I'm sure you can hide behind some "best practices" excuse.  Let me deicide what is a best practice for my subs.

It's crazy that I can't add an emoji to my subject line...

Hi Hannah,
For what we are charged monthly, this should be a non issue. Best practices of CC seem outdated and not the 

industry standard. I am guessing the person making these decisions is older and the trend has passed them by.

Why does CC care if my emails are sent to a spam folder. I recieve plenty of marketing emails with emojis that don't get sent to my spam folder in both Gmail and private server. Honestly they are the ones I open, because the senders are in touch with my generation.
If they get sent to spam, that's my problem. My subscribers are of the digital generation and use emojis to communicate. My IG and snap chat biz pages use emojis and my followers respond to me using them.

They are heavily used on Twitter & are now being used state wide on billboards to discourage drinking and driving. 
Please unblock the use of Emojis in your CC mobile App.
Thanks for funneling the requests to the right location. 
Cheers, 
Michelle

Agreed, would really love to see the option in use an emoji in the subject line. Commenting and will be voting as well. Not sure how my customers will react but I'll never know if I can't test it out.

Would like to include images in subject line - as are currently being seen in marketing emails landing in my intray from other businesses.

Travel sites include small airplane with travel offers, Staples includes small office supply symbols (like pencil or scissors) with instore specials, etc.

Adding my voice here, this is a moderately sized black mark against CC's service.

There's plenty of data to show that emoji's can have a significant positive imact on opens and click throughs. I'm A/B testing right now and was shocked to find out that CC doesn't support them. 

Please add to your dev queue, thanks!
