On May 18, after I/O 2021, Google released the Android 12 Beta 1. It's a raw version of future Android 12 OS, where we found a few hundred emojis with changed design. We may discover new changes with new public betas releases and expect the arrival of new emoji designs in September or October with the finished version of Android 12 on Google Pixel devices.
The 🥥 Coconut emoji now features a solitary half of the drupe. 🗻 Mount Fuji got rid of its reflection and sharp corners at the bottom and now has clouds at the base. The ✂️ Scissors received shadows, and 🛒 Shopping Cart now has a more realistic design you can see in a supermarket.
The 😷 Face with Medical Mask design reversed to its android 10 version.
Most changes are in the Plants, Food, Places, and Objects categories.
Mountains got rid of sharp corners and square bottom. The 🏕️ Camping emoji now features a campfire and classic tent.
Ocean surrounds 🏝️ Desert Island in a round shape instead of rectangular.
Check that new Google 🌅 Sunrise design, isn't it awesome?
A lot of designs are now similar to Apple iOS - which is good from cross-platform consistency perspective.
But a few emojis have stepped away and are now more different than before.
