    World Emoji Day

    Apple And Google Releases New Emojis For iOS And Android

    Emojis have become an integral part of our online conversations, and practically no virtual communication seems complete. It is no surprise then that emojis have a day dedicated to them.

    July 17 is celebrated as the World Emoji Day every year. It is also a day when Apple previews its upcoming emoji packs that will debut on iOS. Both tech giant companies (Apple and Google) will roll out these new emojis later this year.

    Apple will release a total of 117 emojis that were approved earlier this year as part of the Emoji 13.0 release by the Unicode Consortium. A new preview released by Apple and shared by Emojipedia gives users a look at how these emojis will look like upon release.

    The 13 new additions include symbols for the Dodo bird, nesting dolls, pinata, Tamale, Pinched Fingers, Boomerang, Ninja, Coin, Anatomical Heart, Beaver, Transgender symbol, Bubble Tea and Lungs.


    There have been calls for a more suitable mask-wearing emoji in 2020, as the existing Face with Medical Mask emoji depicts a sad or sick looking face.

    Additionally, Apple provides some new Memoji options for various headwear and colored face masks, which can be used as stickers in iOS messaging apps.
    For World Emoji Day, Google has announced a number of classic emojis returning to Android this year. Google has indicated that some older designs will be coming back to the Android 11 emoji keyboard animal section.

    Some of the existing emoji, including Turtle, Frog, and Hatching Chick, will get a new design.
    Some emojis evoke the previous more playful appearance but are, in fact, new designs. Other updates have also made been to improve certain emojis' compatibility with Android's dark mode.

    The update will also include all 117 new emojis from Emoji 13.0. Those subscribed to Google's Android Beta programme will have already have had access to these new emojis, with their release confirmed as part of this upcoming fall update.
