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.

Google Yanks YouTube From Amazon's Echo Show And Fire TV Devices
Blocking YouTube on the Echo Show was an annoyance for Amazon , but its streaming devices really need to have YouTube support. Hopefully, they can come to an agreement that works for all parties, because it's users who are paying the price right now.

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.
