๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

Belated ๐Ÿฆƒ Thanksgiving and ๐Ÿ•Ž Hanukkah well-wishes to all those that celebrate them from us here at the Emoji Wrap!

After over 5 years of presenting their emojis with a notably thick outline, Microsoft has this month completely overhauled their emoji set via a presently optional update for Windows 11. ๐Ÿ†•๐ŸชŸ๐ŸŽจ

Dubbed the Fluent emoji set, as part of the platform's Fluent design initiative, this design overhaul was originally previewed during this year's World Emoji Day celebrations, albeit with a more glossy, 3D, animated apperance.

Our Windows 11 November 2021 Emoji Changelog provides an overview of the new emojis in this Microsoft update, highlighting many of the most interesting design changes within the new Fluent style, and discusses when and where we expect to see the 3D animated incarnation of the set.

Meanwhile, Google have finalized the designs for their Emoji 14.0 support. This means that emojis like Dotted Line Face, Biting Lip, and the already-beloved Melting Face are expected to begin rollout out across Google platforms and devices in the very near future. ๐Ÿ”œ๐Ÿค–

As for Apple's Emoji 14.0 support, we expect to see these new additions in early 2022, with March or April being the most likely timeframe. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฃ

Additionally, Unicode is accepted feedback on the provisional candidate list for next year's Emoji 15.0, Samsung has released its Emoji 13.1 support, and Google Messages will start converting Apple iMessage reactions into emoji.

All this and more in this month's Emoji Wrap! ๐ŸŒฏ๐Ÿ“ฅ
