Pool 8 Ball

This emoji displays the black 8 ball on most platforms, which looks similar to the Magic 8-Ball toy. This is despite the fact that emoji was originally created intending to represent game of billiards, of which pool is a common version.

Samsung previously displayed this emoji with a cue and triangular arrangement of colored balls, as did Google and Microsoft (sans cue).

Pool 8 Ball was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 under the name "Billiards" and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
