Google Inc. has updated a little less than 1,000 of its Emoji designs to celebrate World Emoji Day 2021 and phones, apps, and other devices will begin to see new Emojis.

A non-profit corporation, The Unicode Consortium in charge of developing and standardizing Unicode-based Emoji delayed the rollout of Unicode Standard 14.0. Instead of seeing that in March this year, we won’t see it until September. Obviously, the COVID-19 pandemic played a big role in this delay.

Google said that the new designs will arrive likely in August or early September alongside Android 12, they’ll also be available on older versions with apps that support Appcompat and it will also be coming to other Google platforms like Gmail, Chrome OS, Google Chat, and YouTube Live Chat this month.

Most of the updates are appealing in nature and are clearly the same Emoji, they just look a bit different.

Facebook announced new emoji with sound for its Messenger service, and even Microsoft got in on the action with a new set of 3D emoji across Windows, Office, Microsoft Teams, and elsewhere.

Google isn’t stopping the World Emoji Day celebrations just at changing some Emoji, though. There’s another big change in store.

Have a happy World Emoji Day, everyone.
