Android 12’s emoji include a ‘universal’ pie and a happier mask wearer

Published

on

It wouldn’t be World Emoji Day without an update from Google on its next Android emoji, and there will be plenty of updates to the special characters for Android 12. Google has previewed updates to “hundreds” of characters for the new OS that will also make them more accessible across apps and platforms. In many cases, they’re simply more thoughtful — they don’t make quite so many presumptions about you or the context of using a given emoji.

To start, there’s a more ‘universal’ pie instead of the pumpkin pie from before (where was this for Android 9?). The bikini emoji doesn’t look like it’s being worn. Food emoji like the croissant and shrimp look like they’ve been cooked properly. The camping tent emoji cleverly reflects day or night depending on your OS theme. And the mask emoji no longer looks like a sick person — it’s a pandemic-era acknowledgment that wearing a mask shows kindness and respect.

You’ll also see emoji that are more functional and easier to read, such as a more realistic motorway character and larger vehicles.

You’ll have an easier time using the new emoji, too. From Android 12 onward, apps that support Google’s Appcompat will always support the latest emoji without requiring separate updates. Better emoji functionality is also coming to many of Google’s platforms, including consistent support in Gmail this July, a new emoji picker in Chrome OS the same month and improved functionality in YouTube chats later in 2021. All told, you won’t have to worry so much about missing emoji or other challenges expressing yourself.

Nintendo’s next SNES Switch Online games include ‘Claymates’ and ‘Jelly Boy’

Published

on

Where, oh where, are the great SNES games for Nintendo’s Switch Online service? That’s what I’m wondering after seeing the company’s next batch of titles: Claymates, Jelly Boy and Bombuzal, which are scheduled to arrive on July 28th. No offense to Interplay’s Clay series (which includes the far more memorable Clayfighter), but these aren’t titles I’m exactly hankering to dive into. While Nintendo has done a solid job of bringing some of the biggest first-party titles over to Switch Online’s SNES library, we’re still waiting for classics like Mario RPG and EarthBound to arrive. 

There’s some value in letting younger generations see the sort of titles ’90s kids had to suffer through, though. And while Jelly Boy isn’t exactly a household name, this is the first time it’s going to be available outside of Europe, which at least makes it an interesting curio for retro gamers.
