The redesign of all the emojis on Android will arrive with Android O, which can now be installed through a beta on Nexus phones and will arrive in just a few months. A face lift more than necessary than will leave behind the strange shape (round on top, flat on bottom) of the faces of Android 7 Nougat and they will become completely round icons.
Emojis began to appear on Android in 2012. Since then, their only big change was in 2013 when they took on color and the android look was abandoned. With Android Lollipop 5 the emojis acquired, as defined by emojipedia, a worm or bubble appearance in all its variations, human or not. There were no people waving but a kind of yellow figure with raised hand, hairless, bodyless, without clothes.
With the arrival of Android 7.0 this changed and human emojis began to appear. The saluting yellow worm changed to human form. Also the emojis of professions and other people that appear on the keyboard of the same.
Until now, some emojis seemed larger than others on Android and there were slightly different colors from one another. With Android O this will be left behind and the proportions in the emoticons will be constant. They will be figures more similar to those we are used to seeing on WhatsAppOn Samsung or an iPhone, for example.
The redesign will also have full compatibility with Emoji 5.0, which includes new faces such as an emoji about to vomit, new fantasy characters (a wizard, for example) or new foods and sports.
Android O is expected to be released in the second half of the year, although the exact date is not yet known. The change would also solve the problem in other versions of Android when users do not see new icons due to not having the system updated. From now on you will no longer see that small “cross” when we do not have an icon on our mobile.
The Android beta program has already stopped having Android Nougat as an operating system. Android O Beta is now available and you can already install the new firmware if you have any of the Google devices released in recent years.
