The new emojis look horrendous. Not only it loses its identity and adorableness, it is also inconsistent in stroke weight and random in choices of gradients, and does not follow Material design guidelines. The emotions of the faces come across as fake and insincere, while the original blobs were playful and feels genuine. Moreover, the faux gradient anchors Android permanently as a copycat of iOS.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
