Just as the operating system evolves with each passing year, emojis do the same as well, and it is something to which more and more people are giving importance. After all, many people use emojis more than the keyboard itself.
Well, after the changes being carried out by other platforms, it seems that Google will be the next to make changes so that the emoji of the gun stops being a gun to become a water pistol.
That’s right, as you can read in Emojipedia, Google has updated their emojis to carry out this change in the gun, because many other companies have already done the same, and Google “It wants to be as compatible with other operating systems as possible.”
This is because Apple updated this emoji to be a toy gun two years ago, and Google is a company prone to change their emojis – very criticized since always – to coincide with other platforms, and coinciding with Apple, of course, has more positive than negative points.
As you can see in the image, there are already many companies that have decided to make this change in the emoji of the gun, which Apple started due to the multiple episodes of violence that take place in the United States.
We are in the process of evolving our emojis to reflect our values and the feedback we’ve received. Here’s a preview: pic.twitter.com/BlB3yYTSht

Microsoft, as you can see, is the next one that plans to take this step, and will convert your emoji from the revolver in a water gun with a tank on top. What do you think of this change? Did you use the emoji of the gun a lot?
