- Text messages will appear with incorrect Chinese characters or emojis

Texts received with nonsense characters are likely sent with UTF-32 or a different unsupported encoding format. Emojis are often the catalyst for this issue. If the issue persists while both parties use Android Messages, the sender can possibly explore ways with their carrier to change how texts are encoded.
