Earlier this week, Google announced the roll out of its latest version of Android. With Android 11, smartphone users are expected to get a bunch of new features. What they will also get are 117 new and updated emojis.

Some of the emoji designs had been under beta testing for the last few months. “The scale of these changes makes Google’s Android 11.0 emoji update the largest since 2017’s Android 8.0,” the blog post noted.
Not all the emojis are exactly new as changes also include subtle shading and outline modifications for all people, red hearts instead of purple hearts, and tweaks to many objects and symbols.
Some of the new emojis that Android users will get include smiling face with tear,disguised Face, and pinched fingers. Apart from this 10 new people emojis have also been added with Android 11. 12 new animals, including a black cat and polar bear have also been added.
Android 11 has been officially rolled out to a select few eligible devices As is the case with all Android updates, it will come down to brands and carriers when and how they roll out Android 11 on their smartphones.
As for Emojipedia, it has clarified that “these updates do not apply to those with Samsung devices. Samsung has its own emoji set which is updated on a separate schedule to Google’s Android emoji updates. Apps on Android such as WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook also have their own custom emoji designs, which are rolled out on a separate schedule to Google.”
