Microsoft has today shown its latest emoji support for those signed up for Windows Insider builds.

Supporting all the new emojis approved as part of emoji 11.0, new additions include a foot, frisbee[1], swan, lobster, and skateboard.

This release also replaces the previous 🔫 Pistol emoji design with a water pistol / squirt gun as the company indicated would be the case back in April 2018.
