World’s top search engine browser, Google, has published 31 new emojis with its Noto font for the web to allow developers easily embed them in their projects.
According to TechCrunch, Google disclosed that the new emojis will be available by the end of the year on Andriod and next year on their other products.
Google’s new emojis came after Unicode Consortium, an organization maintaining the official emojis catalogue for smartphones, published the Unicode 15.0 standard on Tuesday with 31 new emojis.
“By popular demand, we’ve added tons of new Emoji Kitchen mashups, available as stickers via Gboard. This seasonal update combines your favorite emoji with the best parts of fall to share with your Northern Hemisphere friends,” Google said on its blogpost.
Along with the colour version of the updated Noto font, Google has also published a revamped monochrome version of the font with new emojis.
Also, Google is releasing its first set of animated emojis for open usage with some of them already available in the company’s Messages app.
The company is also adopting the COLRv1 standard, which lets you change parts of the font — in this case, emojis.
For instance, you can try out this demo with the duck emoji to shuffle the colours of different parts to create a new version of it.
Currently, support for COLRv1 is only available in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge with Firefox support coming up soon. However, you can’t send these remixed emojis through the messaging apps just yet.
