Google Noto Color Emoji Gmail

Google released an original set of 79 animated emoji characters for Gmail on 2008-10-23. Designed by Ryan Germick and Susie Sahim, this set was known internally at Google as goomoji. These unique designs were implemented following Gmail's initial emoji support in Japan, which used images from au by KDDI.

66 of the 79 emojis in this set map directly to the first emoji code points added to Unicode 6.0. The remaining 13 emojis were added to Unicode in subsequent years.

Implemented using Private Use Area code points, these have been mapped to their modern Unicode code points for display here.

The Google Noto Color Emoji set is used as the default emoji set on mobile devices manufactured by the likes of Xiaomi, Oppo, Huawei, and of course Google.

There are also two additional Noto Emoji variants: the minimalist Noto Emoji font, and an animated subset of Noto Color Emoji designs used by the Messages by Google mobile app.
