    Google has released the Android 13 QPR Beta 2 update for Pixel devices. The update is bundled with multiple bug fixes and also brings support for Unicode 15 emojis. Before the Android 13 QPR2 update goes stable in March, the beta update brings 21 emoji, ranging from new animals to a bunch of other characters.

    New emojis bring new ways for users to express themselves. According to Unicode 15.0, there are five new animals introduced as emoji in the Android 13 QPR Beta 2 update: donkey, moose, goose, wing, and jellyfish. The blackbird replaces the already existing bluebird. The update also brings ginger, hyacinth, and pea pod.

    Lovers, you are also getting new colored hearts, i.e., a pink heart, a light blue heart, and a grey heart. It is joined by a shaking face, a hand pushing toward the right, and a hand pushing to the left. The hand emojis are available in different skin tones. Other emojis include a folding hand fan, hair pick, flute, maracas, khanda, and wireless. These new emojis do not appear on Gboard yet. However, you can use these new emojis available with the Android 13 QPR Beta 2 update by copying and pasting.

    If you have a Pixel device, you should see the Android 13 QPR Beta 2 emoji available. If not, then you can always sign up for the Google beta program, and after you have completed the signup process, you will receive the update. As a caveat, you might face multiple issues with the updates, since they will be in beta.
