Emojis in Android GO are redesigned by Google

One of the most prominent signature changes that we see in each Android iteration is the redesigning of the standard emoji set. The trend started with the release of Android 4.4, Google has been constantly refining the emoticons of every next Android version, including Nougat.

The famous gumdrop-style emoji we have seen between Android 4.4 and Android 7.0 might presumably be changed now. Apple has been working designing and refining the tradition complete-round emoticons and they seem to be working well for the users.

We received a news today that Google has redesigned the set of emoji that will be used in Android O (or Android Go), they are now back to the tradition full-circle style.

There hasn’t been much changes, except that the gumdrop is now substituted with the graphical representation of an emoji inside a complete circle.

It is probably for the better too, due to Facebook’s preference of circular emoticons, people are much used to and fond of the traditional design of emoticons.

Google’s gumdrop design doesn’t have that many followers, at least not enough for Google to keep them in Android O, as we can see.
