Windows 11 Can Still Get Microsoft’s 3D Fluent Emoji

Windows 11 recently gained support for new emojis that conform to Microsoft’s Fluent Design Language. As part of the Emoji update, Microsoft has replaced the paperclip emoji with Clippy for Microsoft Office and supported Emoji 13.1 in the Windows 11 update in November 2021.

You can press Windows key + period to experience Windows 11’s shiny new emoji. These new emoji look modern and match the look and feel of Windows 11, and it’s great to see a new feature to personalize the emoji colors to your liking.

As you may recall, Microsoft actually committed to bringing 3D emoji to Windows 11 as early as 2021, and quite a few people were excited about it. However, Microsoft has failed to deliver the promised 3D-style Fluent Design emoji, and Windows 11 users can currently try simple 2D emoji.

Microsoft officials said that 3D emoji shouldn’t be released on Windows, and its social media team posted “wrong graphics.” Microsoft apologized for the error, but it doesn’t look like 3D emojis could be ruled out.

This comes from Microsoft’s Nando Costa, who suggested that there will actually be a Windows 11 update that supports 3D emoji. In a blog post on LinkedIn, Microsoft officials explained that the work on emoji isn’t quite complete, and that Microsoft plans to create new designs based on new Unicode versions every year.

Microsoft will also explore their own exclusive concepts. Additionally, Microsoft’s Nando Costa clarified on Twitter that the 3D emoji that was originally teased last year could still be in Windows 11.

Costa replied to a user who wanted to see 3D emoji on Windows 11 Microsoft is working on a fix.
