The 31 static figures newly added in Unicode 15.0, and already incorporated by Google, comprise 20 completely new figures. The rest are emoji variations, such as different skin tones in the pushing hand symbol and the heart colors.

In addition, 180 animated emojis were also added – which, in turn, do not include these 31 new drawings. On the animation download page, the giant explains: “With nearly 4,000 emojis, we are living one day at a time. You can expect more to be added in the future.”

That said, it’s worth remembering that Noto Color Emoji, a font that brings together Google’s static pattern emoticons, currently has 3,664 figures. The company also has thousands of emojis in a monochrome version, originally released in April of this year, as a kind of “back to ancient times”.

Another novelty from Google is the adoption of the COLRv1 standard, which allows you to change the colors of emojis. Users can shuffle the tones of a character and create their own version of the figure, as in the example below. For now, support for COLRv1 is only available in Chrome and Microsoft Edge, but Firefox should get the feature soon.

It is worth mentioning that customizations that use the COLRv1 standard cannot yet be used in messengers such as WhatsApp and Telegram. However, Google is looking to expand the possibilities for customizing emojis in these apps.

To offer a possibility of customization in these applications, the manufacturer has updated the “Emoji Kitchen” feature of Gboard, with a feature that allows you to change the colors of emojis through colored hearts. To do this, simply insert the desired emoji followed by the heart with the color of your choice. A rose and a yellow heart, for example, would generate a yellow rose.

There is no confirmation of the release of these faces on cell phones with Android system, but, as indicated by Google in its blog post, it is possible that they will be available to the public in 2023. TechTudo contacted the company to confirm the date, but, until the closing of the matter, had still not received answers.
