๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

Hello and welcome to emoji action season. Kicking off around World Emoji Day in mid-July, we tend to see emoji updates from major vendors just about every month.

Apple and Microsoft have both previewed their new emojis recently, and Google has just begun rolling out their major emoji update in Android 9.0 โ€œPie". Expect to see more from Facebook and Samsung later in the year, too.

On this month's podcast I chat to Judy Safran-Aasen and Mike LaJoie from the team who handle emoji at Microsoft, and we discuss a number of the articles mentioned in this very newsletter.

A lot of the articles this month are from news or announcements on World Emoji Day itself, but if you're looking for something quicker, here's video summary of the day.
