News Tech: Emoji from the upcoming generation are already openly accessible courtesy to Google’s Noto Emoji initiative. To begin with, there are 31 new emojis to catch up to Unicode 15.0 (for a total of 3,664), all of which will be accessible on Android soon and other Google projects in the early months of 2019.

Google is also switching to a new font format called COLRv1. These are vector images so they make for smaller font files (e.g. Twitter’s “Twemoji” icon set went down from 9MB to 1.85MB). Also, they remain sharp even when scaled up.

You can also have a look at all animations currently available here – they are available to download as GIFs and video files and you can use them today.

The COLRv1 emojis can use smooth gradients and the colors are customizable to boot. Right now colors can only be modified by the app or browser. This is a simple way for apps to bring some brand coloring to emojis and can be used for, say, quick and easy night mode emojis. Here’s a look at what’s possible.
