Since emoji appeared in Android, Google has been gradually adding new emojis to Android, but all the time they were just emoticons in the form of photos, which were not animated. The latest update will also add 31 new emoticons in line with the Unicode 15.0 update, while the key change will be the introduction of support for animated emoticons in Android.

The full list of animated emojis has been posted by Google on the Github platform. The change is to be introduced gradually to all Android phones, and initially the new, animated emoji will be available on smartphones from the Pixel series. In addition, Google Keyboard will also allow you to merge two emoticons into one when typing messages on popular social pages. By placing two emoticons next to each other, the keyboard will allow you to combine them into one emoji, and the effects will appear on the keyboard. Later, the appropriately transformed emoticon can be placed in the body of the message.
