The pool of emojis includes a melting face, biting lips, new gender options, skin tones, and variants of existing emojis .
In perspective, it is a smaller set compared to three previous versions of Unicode, for example, version 13.0 brought 55 emojis, and version 12.0 brought 61 emoticons.
The new Unicode 14.0 suite was initially released for users of Apple devices running iOS 15.4 , and is now open for WhatsApp beta users. If you become a WhatsApp beta user, remember that you must wait for an important update in the PlayStore to exit and use the normal version.
