Google's Updated Emojis Now Available in Chat for Android

Another aim was to make characters larger and have them take better advantage of the tiny space they can occupy. This is seen in the vehicle emoji, while several others are now more realistic. Food also got a general upgrade towards realism. In Google Chat, emojis serve as “reactions.” Long pressing on messages in the mobile client reveals a menu with “Add reaction” at the top. The addition of Unicode 13.1 emoji revamps this page slightly, with the list now featuring a “Recently used” section. That’s followed by a lengthy grid organized by nine categories with a tap of the bottom bar quickly moving you to the relevant characters.

Google said last month that all of its emoji — over 1,000 characters — would be updated for Android 12 and Chrome OS 92 this autumn. These new emoji designs will also be available in Google Chat in the coming weeks. Google set out to make its emoji more “globally relevant,” ensuring that each design made sense to everyone. Google, for example, historically utilised a piece of pumpkin pie to display all varieties of pies. The character has been changed to be a complete one capable of representing any flavor/filling.

Other cited changes include the “addition of a gender-neutral option for gender-modifiable emojis,” while “emoji skin tone and gender preferences are saved per individual emoji.” These trio of updates are rolling first to Google Chat for Android and will be fully available over the coming weeks. The web and iOS clients will also get these additions in a similar timeframe.
