A more inclusive salad? Know the answer. WhatsApp it has been updated and for 2 weeks it has implemented new emojis on its fast messaging platform. There are a total of 230 emoticons among which we find the mate, the orangutan, new yellow faces, the falafel, among others.
But not only WhatsApp It has integrated emojis, but it has also changed the way to some. It is the case of the salad. Did you notice that Google, the creator of the icons, removed the egg?
Although many had not perceived it until they picked up the cell phone, the salad has a number of ingredients: tomato, lettuce and, of course, an egg slice. Why was the latter removed?
Jennifer Daniel, director of UX for Google emojis on Twitter, explained that this reason has to do with the issue of inclusion and diversity.
"We have eliminated the egg on Android, which makes it a more inclusive vegan salad," he said on his Twitter account.
There will also be the much demanded redhead emojis that add to the brown and blond. Similarly the icons of families formed by two women, two men, or mixed. Did you notice this emoticon in WhatsApp?
