EmojiOne 4.0 Now Available

EmojiOne Version 4.0 offers a complete design update and 157 brand new emoji.

It is with much pride and excitement that we announce the launch of EmojiOne 4.0 today! This was a design upgrade that no one saw coming. What started out as purely a refresh of EmojiOne Version 3.1 has evolved over the last nine months into one of our most ambitious updates yet. Since Version 1.0, EmojiOne has been shifting from a more cartoon-style emoji to a design characterized as more realistic and lifelike, and nowhere is that more apparent than in our Version 4.0 emoji icon gallery.

Remarkable Attention to Detail

The most notable design enhancement in Version 4.0 is certainly the introduction of gradients. As 4.0 took on a more lifelike style, it quickly became apparent that our designers needed access to a wider range of shades to best reflect the details in each design. The results are stunning and more colorful than ever!

That shift to a more lifelike style also meant a complete retooling of our People.Eyes, eyebrows, and smiles have all been updated. Users will note that the default hair color is no longer the reddish-orange of the past but will instead be brown, with hairstyles that are much more on trend for 2018.

100% Unicode 11.0 Compliant

EmojiOne Version 4.0 also supports all 2018 Unicode-introduced additions from Emoji 11.0. This includes 157 new emoji, such as the cupcake, bagel, peacock, llama, the oft-requested red head, and dozens more, bringing the total number of emoji included in Version 4.0 to an incredible 2,827 designs!
