Microsoft opens more than 1,500 of its 3D emoji – Research Snipers

At the beginning of this year, after some delay, Microsoft distributed its new 3D emoji and now the innovation has been announced. Because the (almost) complete library of these react symbols is released as open source via GitHub and Figma.

Microsoft writes in a blog post that emojis are able to cross language barriers, convey nuance or humor, and soften comments that would otherwise sound harsh: “These indispensable communication tools have become so important that Over the past year, we’ve included all of our emoji library as part of our ongoing renewed efforts to make Microsoft 365 a more expressive ecosystem than ever.

“Color palette open source emoji”

The Redmonders then ask, “But what could be better than a colorful array of refreshed emoji?” The answer: “A colorful range of open-source emoji!” Specifically, this means publishing your entire emoji library to GitHub and Figma UX/UI software.

Jon Friedman, CVP, Design & Research at Microsoft, explains, “An amazing team of designers and developers spent over a year creating our emoji in any format. Just as there are captions in different languages, emoji are available in SVG, PNG, and JPG files to be truly versatile, and each of these formats should have a vector, flat, monochrome version designed for scalability and flexibility. Over 1500 emojis are available which can be customized as you like in the spirit of the open source idea. “Our creative community is resourceful, and we can’t wait to see you push boundaries, remix our designs, and take the Flowing emoji to places we couldn’t foresee,” Friedman writes.

Clippy is missing

Almost all of the emoji are on Microsoft’s board, but there are a few exceptions: Clippy in particular is missing, but that’s because it’s trademarked and you can’t (legally) render it open-source. For the same reason, country flags, video games, and tech emoji will also not be available this way.
