JoyPixels 8.0 Emoji Changelog

JoyPixels 8.0 Emoji Changelog

JoyPixels have released version 8.0 of their freemium emoji set, introducing support for the 2022 emoji list including the ๐Ÿฉท Pink Heart and ๐Ÿซจ Shaking Face emojis.

All of the 31 new emojis included in JoyPixels 8.0 are drawn from September 2022's Emoji 15.0 recommendations.

Additionally, over 500 different emoji designs have been revised in this update. These revisions include reworking the majority of emojis within the ๐Ÿป Animals & Nature and ๐Ÿš€ Travel & Places categories, as well as revising a series of subtle color tweaks to many prominently black emoji designs to improve their compatibility with devices running in dark mode.

Such large-scale revisions have been a hallmark of JoyPixels' updates dating back the when the vendor used the name EmojiOne.

๐Ÿ†• New

Although JoyPixels 8.0 contains just 31 new emojis, there are emoji additions across each of the major emoji categories.

Firstly, within ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Smileys & People there is one new smiley face and two new complimentary hand gestures (both of which support the standard five skin tone modifier options).

The ๐Ÿ’• Symbols category has also received five new additions, three of which are colorful new heart emojis.

The ๐Ÿป Animals & Nature has received the largest new additions in today's release, with six new additions.

Additionally, the ๐Ÿ” Food & Drink category has two new emoji additions that straddle the line between nature and foodstuff: a ๐Ÿซ› Pea Pod and the root from a ๐Ÿซš Ginger plant.

Lastly, JoyPixels 8.0 has two new additions in both the โšฝ Activity and ๐Ÿ’ก Objects categories - two musical instruments (a ๐Ÿชˆ Flute and ๐Ÿช‡ Maracas) and two appearance-focused items (a ๐Ÿชฎ Hair Pick and a ๐Ÿชญ Folding Hand Fan).
