In total, the Cupertino-based tech giant has added 441 emojis in a single OS update. Out of all the emojis, the one that has caught the eye of everyone is multi-skin tone handshake emojis which are scheduled to launch next year. The handshake emoji is available on platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Apple, and more.
The design of the emoji represents the innermost structure of the Memorial, called the 'Amar Chakra' or the 'Circle of Immortality'. The emoji will be live until 18th August. It will be available in English and several Indic languages, such as Hindi, Tamil, Urdu, Kannada, Punjabi, Marathi, Malayalam, Bengali, Telugu, Gujarati, and Oriya.
The new emoji shortcuts bar in Gboard will appear right above the keyboard. With the emoji bar, users would be able to quickly use multiple emoji without having to switch to the dedicated emoji page on the keyboard. In the current Gboard version, the users need to tap on the emoji icon next to the spacebar in order to open the emoji page.
