Android 6.0.1 adds a ton of new emoji, and weve got the full list

Android 6 logoA small update to Android 6.0Android 6.0.1is official and will start rolling out to devices today. 6.0.1's main purpose for existing seems to be a bunch of new Unicode 8 emojiwhich we have dutifully covered in the above galleryalong with small tweaks to the tablet layout and the Do Not Disturb mode.

Unicode.org has a full list of all the current emoji complete with what the emoji look like on other platforms, so we used that to create the above list. The site wasn't entirely accurate, but we fixed whatever mistakes we could spot (we think they had an old Android emoji list).

The redesigned poop emoji (#79 in the list), will probably generate some comments. There also still aren't any fancy emoji "modifiers" for things like skin color yeteverything gets a yellow skin tone and that's it.

Android 6.0.1 adds a ton of new emoji, and weve got the full list

Our gallery covers emoji support, which is different from emoji typing. Android 6.0.1 also comes with a new Google Keyboard, which unlocks a few emoji that were in the system before but could not be summoned via the keyboard. We're mostly talking about the country flagswhich there are a whole lot ofand a few other oddballs like dial pad number keys.The emoji section of the Google Keyboard has also been rearranged with a new tab layout. There are now 10 tabs for emoji instead of seven, with "flags," "sports," and "food" now getting their own tabs.

And yes, believe it or not, adding new emoji does require an entire operating system update on Android, which is pretty lame. While Google Keyboard can be updated via the Play Store (and needs to be, for the new emoji tabs) the actual fonts are still tied to the system. Break out the emoji font to the Play Store, Google!
