Are the ugly emoji's one of the few things holding you back from turning to Android? Whether you hate them or love them, Google is finally ditching the ugly blob emoji and redesigning them for the release of Android O.

Google will be following the footsteps of Apple in terms of their more circular emoji designs. The “blob” emoji originally morphed into more of a “gumdrop” over the years, but soon will be transforming completely into a full circle for the release of Android's new software update.

Google will also be adding quite a few new icons, including a dinosaur and the vomit face. Every single one of Android's existing emojis will see some pretty significant changes. Be on the lookout for Android O which is expected to roll out later this year.
