Facebook Messenger now has 1500 brand-new emojis

We'll never have to use letters again.

Who doesn’t love getting new stuff; especially when it’s emojis. When Unicode recently announced we’d be getting 72 brand-spankin’ new ones on our phones this month we were like:

So you can imagine how much we FREAKED OUT when Facebook Messenger announced they'd be gifting us all with 1500!

Not only that, but with this new update FB are making sure you’ll know longer see that little black box with an X through it just cause you have an iPhone and your friend who sent the emoji is on Andriod.

“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” Facey wrote in a post on their page.


Update your Messenger app to enjoy the new characters – they’re available RN.
