Meet the diversity of the world of emojis on Android 7.1, the options available in the Unicode 9 update completely embraced by Google!

Now, if somebody asks you what you do for a living, you have every reason to send him a little man or woman demonstrating your profession. Examples include artist, astronaut, judge, firefighter, scientist, student, and technologist.

When touching and holding on any of these Emojis, you’ll then be able to select from various skin tone options and genders available. Additionally, there are also pictures of parent families and other amusing symbols. The rainbow pride flag, male and female symbols, and the staff of Aesculapius.

There is also a “silver bridge” for many of the new emoji. For instance, “female mechanic” will display as a woman and a wrench emoji next to each other on platforms that don’t support the “female mechanic” symbol.

Emojipedia has a full description of the new friends that are waiting for you in the keyboard. Check them out yourself if you have a Pixel or have opted into the Android 7.1 developer preview. Outside of the new emojis, some actual emojis have received a necessary visual update.

Why do I need emojis on Android 7.1?

Nowadays, emojis are essential to communicate online. Any dialog would be imperfect without them. People of all ages like them not just because they are easy to use in messages, but also because they help express emotions in a way that is understood much better than simple text. Emojis have done a bad job of representing the diversity of people and showing women and men equally in some trades, thus intensifying stereotypes. The new Emoji options in Unicode 9 go a long way toward addressing this. They’ll be available in supported keyboards when your phone gets the Android 7.1 update. If you have a Pixel, they’re already there.
