    If you don't want to allow users to add emoji in edittext then below few lines will be helpfull for you. This method will return blank string while typing any similies/emoji in your editext.

    public static InputFilter EMOJI_FILTER = new InputFilter() {
    
            @Override
            public CharSequence filter(CharSequence source, int start, int end, Spanned dest, int dstart, int dend) {
                for (int index = start; index < end; index++) {
    
                    int type = Character.getType(source.charAt(index));
    
                    if (type == Character.SURROGATE) {
                        return "";
                    }
                }
                return null;
            }
        };

    call this EMOJI_FILTER in your onCreate() method with edittext whome you have to avoid typing emoticons.

            yourEdittext.setFilters(new InputFilter[]{AppUtility.EMOJI_FILTER});
