Windows 11: 3D emojis still a work in progress
Windows 11 was supposed to come with new 3D emojis, but nothing came of it. These are still in the works.
Actually, Windows 11 should have come with new emojis in 3D style - at least that's what the company announced at the launch of the new OS. These should also follow the Fluent design language and thus fit optically more seamlessly into the rest of the system. In the end, however, the well-known 2D versions that have been around since the early days of Windows 10 were found without further explanation. There was a high probability that there were still difficulties at the time, such as compatibility with third-party apps, which prevented the rollout.
So are the new emojis already history before you could even use them? No, probably not. It seems that Microsoft is still working on the implementation.
Windows 11 with 3D emojis: "We are working on it"
Last Friday, Nando Costa, the designer responsible at Microsoft, published the origin story behind the new symbols. He also linked this to his Twitter account, after which one person claimed that he would like to be able to use this in Windows 11. The response: "We're working on it," with a sweaty emoji, suggesting there were unwanted delays.
Thank you and agreed! We're working on that. 😅

So far so good, so the new version of the emojis isn't written off yet. Unfortunately, when we will see them in Windows 11 is still in the stars.
