Unicode Consortium, an organization that maintains the official emoji catalog for smartphones, released the Unicode 15.0 standard on Tuesday with 31 new emojis, including a pushing hand, a trembling face (or I’m SHOOK), a moose, a goose, the long awaited pink heartand a wifi/wireless board.

We first saw some of the illustrations of these 31 emojis — one of the lowest number of additions in recent years — in July. Now that they’re approved, phone makers, operating system makers, and app makers will deploy their own versions to bring them to your devices. To that end, Google has already published these new emojis with its Noto font for the web – so developers can easily embed them into their projects.

The search giant said the new emojis will be available on Android by the end of the year and on other Google products next year. Along with the color version of the updated Noto font, the company has also published a new monochrome version of the font with new emojis. Google first launched monochrome emojis as . earlier this year a nod to emojis on old feature phones.

In addition, Google is releasing its first set of animated emojis for open use, some of which are already available in the company’s Messaging app.

The company is also adopting the COLRv1 standard, which allows you to change parts of the font, in this case emojis. For example, you can try this demo with the duck emoji to shuffle the colors of different parts to make a new version of them. Currently, support for COLRv1 is only available in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, and support for Firefox is expected soon. However, you can’t send these remixed emojis through the messaging apps yet.

However, Google lets users change their emoji colors through the G-board-based emoji kitchen. You can add a colored heart to an existing emoji to change its color. For example, if you mix a red rose with a yellow colored heart, you get a yellow rose.

Hopefully we’ll see updated emoji implementations soon from the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft.
