Windows 11 in its latest update brings a bunch of new emojis along with lots of bug fixes and improvements. The emoji have also been redesigned to include bright and saturated colors, but lack the 3D aspects that made them pop. “The new emoji style is only available in Windows 11 and is 2D.
The update brings the Windows 11 build number to 22000.348 and issues several bug fixes as well. If you were experiencing issues with the fonts, audio, and other weird issues, you should head for the Windows Update option in Settings and get the update immediately.
The new emojis are a controversial topic for users. In July 2021, Microsoft announced 3D emojis for various products, such as Windows, Teams, Skype, etc. When the redesign arrived in preview builds of Windows 11, users discovered a major disappointment: instead of the promised 3D emojis, they received a somewhat bland and flat 2D version. Microsoft attempted to clarify the situation by stating that the company used “wrong graphics” during the initial announcement.
Windows 11 2 D Emojis
The new emojis have two variants: 3D for apps and 2D for the operating system. Apps that support the redesigned emojis will use the 3D version (Microsoft Teams, Skype, Office, and others), but Windows will stick to the 2D version.
Microsoft does not plan to bring the new emojis to Windows 10. These emojis are exclusive to Windows 11. Still, you can install the new emojis from Windows 11 on computers with Windows 10.
One of the biggest highlights with Windows this year is the native support for Android apps; something that was previously possible with third-party emulators only. Microsoft isn’t hosting its own Android app store though; it is partnering with Amazon to bring its app store into the Microsoft Store. At the launch event, Windows 11 was shown to run apps like TikTok and Instagram natively as Windows apps.
It solves address problems with File Explorer not working, and it turns the blue screen of death (BSOD) back to blue instead of black.
Another fix is that patches issues with context menus. Finally, there’s a fix for NFS if you rename a file from an NFS share through File Explorer
Fixes have also been applied to the taskbar including fixes for icon flickering when hovering over taskbar icons and performance improvements for icon animations.
