Please consider installing fonts-noto-color-emoji by default

Bug Description

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS includes support for color emoji. But you need a color emoji font installed. Ubuntu and most desktop flavors are including fonts-noto-color-emoji (as a Recommends) by default. That is the emoji font used by stock Android devices like the Google Pixel.

Note that Qt apps don't generally support color emoji yet. For that you probably want fonts-symbola which will at least provide decent black and white coverage, if great Qt support is an important consideration for you. (xubuntu-core and xubuntu-desktop already recommend fonts-symbola.)
