Face Palm And Selfie Emojis On The Way


Published at 10:15am 15th April 2016. (Updated at 10:36am 15th April 2016)

Android is introducing brand new emojis including human-like designs, bacon and even the almighty face palm.

Google recently released the Developer Preview of Android N and lets you take a sneak peek at the next version.

In the second instalment engineers share brand new features including the updated emojis.

These new designs now reveal more human-like features rather than the personified yellow blobs you see on current devices.

This includes activity emojis such as juggling, dancing and cartwheels. All regular features of our every day lives. Definitely.

It will also feature skin tone variations, like on current Apple devices.

The update is only available as a beta programme, allowing developers to test the new features before it rolled out.

Take a look below at what we could have on our phones and tablets soon…
