Share

Final details of the Emoji 11 Beta could be released, if approved at the UTC meeting, by the end of January at which time developers and OEMs could start building them into their new OS updates.

"Emoji with glyphs that face to the right or left may face either direction, according to vendor preference", reads a new section of the document.

Certain emoji on Apple devices could be reversible next year, allowing the characters to be flipped in one direction or the other.

World Cup Draw Is Complete, With No Obvious 'Group Of Death'
Group D also features Croatia , who was defeated 1-0 by Argentina in the 1998 group stage, their only previous World Cup meeting. This is the most hard group by average SPI rating, with the four teams having an average rank of 81.7 out of 100.

Among these emoji candidates we find a teddy bear, mango, party face, skateboard, swan, lobster, peacock, but more importantly "Afro" hair, white hair, and redheads! "However, that can cause a definite change in meaning when exchanging text across platforms". Since the beginning of this year, there's been a lot of buzz around what kind of new emoji Unicode 11.0 would bring. "The following ZWJ mechanism can be used to pick an explicit direction".

The developer says it's been a long-requested feature, which will only affect the emoji that will "benefit from it the most".

Missing from this list is the previously announced Frowning Pile of Poo, Grinning Face With Letters OK As Eyes, and Frowning Face With Question Marks As Eyes.

Above: These previous emoji candidates are not in the current Emoji 11.0 beta.

This is due to alignment of the emoji versions in 2018 and beyond with the versions of the Unicode Standard.

The draft 11.0β Emoji Data provides property data, which determines how implementations handle the new characters.
