Eliav Lankri asked me on Twitter yesterday if Google is now preventing emojis from showing up in the FAQ schema rich results. I had a hard time finding any examples of emojis showing in these FAQ results but I did find one. Did you all notice a reduction in emojis in FAQ rich results?

Here is the one example where I saw it come up, it is for the query [agence seo lille]:
Emojis have been showing in the FAQ rich results since it launched.
So do you see more examples?
I did ask John Mueller and Gary Illyes from Google about this yesterday and they were unaware of any changes.
Forum discussion at Twitter.
Update: Many are telling me they still see them, here are screen shots:
