These are the 3D emojis that Microsoft is working on

It appears that Microsoft is still working on and perfecting the release of true 3D emojis for Windows, after the company’s announcement early last year that 3D would finally make it to the popular emojis for the system. operational, finally came to nothing, and there were only 2D improved versions for the brand new Windows 11.

The pandemic accelerated the process

The coronavirus pandemic that has been plaguing the planet since the beginning of 2020 is to blame for Microsoft starting to work against the clock in the development and launch of 3-dimensional emojis. The reason is that during the home confinement in which millions of people from various countries around the world incurred, the number of emojis published both in instant messaging applications and in emails and social networks far exceeded all previous records.

That was the moment when Microsoft realized that it could exploit the boom in emojis by improving them, giving them a 3D texture and even giving them movement, like a kind of Telegram 2.0 sticker. However, over the months the initial idea seems to have faded due to technical complexity, and the lack of knowledge of how these new emojis could be received by users (since they would only be available on devices and applications based on the Windows 11 operating system, so in apps like WhatsApp it would not be implemented).

Back to emojis in 2 dimensions

While Microsoft introduced stunning 3D emojis and promised they would be a part of Windows 11, the company quickly and inexplicably reverted to flat 2D design like the ones available now. It was probably because a flatter 2D design works better in multiple applications. There could also be some technical limitations in Windows that Microsoft needs to iron out before 3D emoji finally becomes a reality.

As leaked to various technology media, Microsoft seems to be working to reflect human qualities (such as wrinkles and hairstyles) in its 3D emojis. Of course, if Microsoft finally achieves a satisfactory result and successfully launches its 3D emojis, these will only be available in company software such as the popular Microsoft Teams application (one of the most used applications during the pandemic by users around the world). ). Microsoft is also known to be using development tools like Adobe Illustrator, Maxon’s Cinema 4D, Figma, Font Lab and the like to create and develop their 3D emojis.
