Microsoft follows Google in swapping its gun emoji for a water pistol

When it comes to gun emojis, it seems that Microsoft didn’t want to be left out. Soon after Google revealed that it is set to become the latest firm to swap its pistol emoji for a water gun, Microsoft announced the same change is coming to Windows 10. Google updated its Noto Color Emoji repository with a new gun design a few days ago. While its icon has changed several times over the years, it’s always looked like an actual weapon—albeit a very old one in 2013. In Android P, however, the emoji will resemble a super soaker water pistol, complete with water reservoir. It’s not clear exactly when Microsoft’s change will come to Windows 10, though it could happen with the Redstone 4 update, which may take place next month. Google’s update is expected to appear in Android 9.0 – the next version of its mobile operating system. via BBC
