Messenger is addressing emoji woes by rolling out a new set of standardized emojis so you can be sure you're sending the right message. No matter what emoji you pick, it will now look the same for all Messenger users, regardless if the recipient is on Android, iOS or another platform. In other words, no more broken-looking black boxes or emojis that just don't make sense. Our characters are consistent every time you use them, no matter what platform the recipient is on.
Messenger will now have a female police officer, runner, pedestrian, surfer and swimmer for the very first time. You will also be able to pick the skin color you prefer. Set the color you want your default emojis to be when Messenger launches, and your emojis after that will follow your preference.
On all platforms, the Messenger composer will now include an emoji picker. Tap the new emoji icon at the left of the composer to find just the right emoji.
Facebook's new emojis start rolling out worldwide tomorrow. You can download Messenger from the App Store for free.
