The Google Chat update brings the gender-neutral emoji set with emojis focused on inclusion

The emoji set in Google Chat is getting updated to Emoji 13.1 version. Google said in a Workspace Updates blog that the diversity- and inclusion-focused set comes with the addition of a gender-neutral option for gender-modifiable emojis. Emoji skin tone and gender preferences can also be saved for reference per individual emoji.

Google Chat is upgrading its current emoji set to the most recent version. The new collection of emojis is intended to increase the variety and inclusivity of expression-based communication. The update began gradually rolling out to Android smartphones on August 2. Google Chat for Web and iOS will receive the upgrade in the coming weeks. Google announced the release of Tensor, their own SoC that will power the future Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices, earlier today.
