This is something we are truly passionate about and are thrilled to build this theme into our personal expression family. These Mojis and emoticons represent a variety of women and the passions they pursue in their daily lives. Whether it be sciences, sports, or business, our idea of a powerful individual is someone who is true to themselves.
“These Mojis and emoticons are a great connection to our diverse customer population, and I can speak based on my own family and friends. I am excited that the Skype Team is continuing our commitment to recognizing and honoring diversity and inclusion in the creation of our products” – Shinder Dhillon, Senior Director of Microsoft Global Diversity & Inclusion.
Notably, Skype's announcement follows a similar one from Facebook who just introduced over 1,500 emojis to Messenger including new designs, gender-agnostic options and multi-colored emojis.
Skype's emoticon picker will be updated with a new tab beginning today.
