Say Hello to new Messenger Emojis !
Like millions of people, you can’t have a texted conversation without sending your contacts one (or more) emojis, especially on instant message applications, like WhatsApp or Messenger. In fact, nearly 10% of mobile sends in Messenger include emojis. That’s why Facebook just announced that it will start rolling out a brand new bunch of home-made emojis in Messenger.
The good news is that, no matter what emoji you pick, it will now look the same for all Messenger users, regardless if the recipient is on Android, iOS or another platform. In other words, no more broken-looking black boxes or emojis that just don’t make sense. The characters are consistent every time you use them, no matter what platform the recipient is on. That’s why Messenger is proudly bringing over 1,500 newly designed Messenger emojis to the world !
The new designs, gender-agnostic options and multi-colored emojis will be available on many Android devices and web products for the first time. Facebook wants to diversify the genders to create a more balanced mix that’s more representative of the world. Now, using Messenger emojis, you’ll see a female police officer, runner, pedestrian, surfer and swimmer for the very first time. You will also be able to pick the skin color you prefer, and all you have to do is set the color you want your default emojis to be when Messenger launches.
To use this brand new emojis, just tap the new emoji icon at the left of the composer to find just the right emoji you need.
