Google has announced the launch of 62 new emojis and 55 skin tones and gender variants that will be available in Android 11 from this year onwards.
Some of the gender variants include a person in veil, a person in tuxedo and a person feeding a baby with a bottle. Two people hugging each other and a smiley with a slight smile and a teardrop are the two emojis that express empathy in the Android 11’s emoji collection.
In the emojis section, the set will have a transgender flag, polar bear, bubble tea, pickup truck, fondue, body parts, potted plants, feathers, berries, animal bugs, sandals, coins, ladder and teapot, to name a few.

Also, Google has introduced a new service ‘Tangi’.
‘Tangi’ is a short video platform that is available as a website and as an app in the Apple store where you can learn and share creative skills. The interface of this platform looks something in between Pinterest and Instagram.
On this platform you can scroll through the videos based on topics or specific tasks that you want to learn. Each video is under 60 seconds that can be saved under the ‘Try it’ collection. The main idea behind ‘Tangi’ is that people should learn something new or get better at their craft. Although the videos are under a minute, one can still get motivation to learn.
