Google has announced new versions of its 998 emojis. These will be available on Android 12 when it is released in the fall.
On the eve of World Emoji Day, Google announced on its blog this Friday a massive change of its own emojis for the next version of Android, expected in the fall.
In a post on its blog, Mountain View says it is preparing to update almost a third of its emojis. Out of a total of 3521 emojis, 998 will be modified for releaseAndroid 12. However, the design behind this redesign does not change the design languageBecause Microsoft plans to do it with its own emojis, But they are easily recognizable by the whole world.
So the pie emoji that represents a slice of pumpkin, now looks like a whole pie. The emoji of a masked man is depicted with closed, sad eyes so far. This will no longer be the case following the health crisis. For emojis representing vehicles, Google decided to increase the readability ratio in a small space. The same is true for many new emojis representing foods such as croissant, bacon, rice blog or shrimp fritters.
Emoji suitable for dark themes
In addition, when users switch Dark theme, Some emojis will be fixed automatically. This is especially the case with camp emojis, which combine stars in the sky, which are only visible on black backgrounds.
These new emojis will be available in the fall and will be updated to Android 12. They will be integrated before the update of many Google services such as Gmail, Google Chat, Chrome OS or YouTube Chat.
