Yesterday for no apparent reasons I started to see text like this in the body of the text if the sender had both text and emojis:

I got on chat with Google FI Support who walked me through through these fixes.

  1. Goto Settings>Apps>GoogleFi>Storage and tap Clear Data

  3. If this recurs make sure to contact support to make sure your network is fixed.
