Twemoji 14.0 Emoji Changelog

Twemoji 14.0 Emoji Changelog

Twitter has begun to roll out Twemoji 14.0, which provides support for new smileys emojis like the ๐Ÿซ  Melting Face and ๐Ÿซก Saluting Face, as well as support for a variety of mixed skin tone ๐Ÿค Handshake emojis.

No previously released emojis have been visibly updated in Twemoji 14.0, though a handful of designs were revised recently in Twemoji 13.1.1.

Like the recent Twemoji 13.1.1 update, Twemoji 14.0 does not alter the aesthetic of Twitter's emoji designs despite teases of glossy emoji designs in select locations across Twitter since early 2021.

๐Ÿ†• New

Twemoji 14.0 includes seven brand new smiley face emojis - the largest number since Twemoji 2.3 provided support for Emoji 5.0 in early 2017.

Twemoji 14.0 includes two new gender-neutral person emojis: ๐Ÿซ… Person with Crown and ๐Ÿซ„ Pregnant Person, following the trend over recent years to provide for three different gender options for all person emojis.

The update also includes a ๐Ÿซƒ Pregnant Man and disembodied ๐Ÿซฆ Biting Lip, as well as a ๐ŸงŒ Troll fantasy creature.

Seven brand new hand gestures have been introduced in Twemoji 14.0 .

All of these new hand gestures include support for skin tone modifier sequences.

Additionally, two of these new hand gestures - namely ๐Ÿซฑ Rightwards Hand and ๐Ÿซฒ Leftwards Hand - have been used to create a series of new ๐Ÿค Handshake emoji sequences with multiple different skin tone options.

These new emojis' designs are based on the revised ๐Ÿค Handshake emoji design recently introduced in Twemoji 13.1.1.

While these ๐Ÿค Handshake emoji options were recommended for inclusion in our emoji keyboards in 2021's Emoji 14.0, several of these new ๐Ÿค Handshake options are not completely new to Twitter:

๐Ÿค Handshake emojis that display a single skin tone (e.g. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿฝ Handshake: Medium Skin Tone) were briefly supported on Twitter in 2016 - introduced in Twemoji 2.1 but removed in Twemoji 2.2.2, along with non-RGI support for skin tone versions of ๐Ÿ‘ฏ Woman With Bunny Ears, ๐Ÿคผ Wrestlers, and the various ๐Ÿ‘ช Family emojis.

Rounding out the new emojis included in Twemoji 14.0 are 18 additional new emojis across the ๐Ÿป Animals & Nature, ๐Ÿ” Food & Drink, ๐Ÿ’ก Objects, and ๐Ÿ”ฃ Symbols categories. These include ๐Ÿซ˜ Beans, ๐Ÿชฉ Mirror Ball, and ๐Ÿฉป X-Ray.

They also include๐Ÿชซ Low Battery, which appears similarly to Twemoji 13.1.1's recently revised ๐Ÿ”‹ Battery design.

๐Ÿ“ถ Release

Twemoji 14.0 designs are now beginning to show for users on the Twitter website, with rollout to further users expected in the coming days and weeks.

Some Android versions of the Twitter app also use Twemoji, and these updates are expected to appear over the coming weeks.

Twitter for iOS uses native system-wide emojis from Apple, and is unaffected by this change.
