Microsoft is pushing them public in various formats, including SVG, PNG and JPG, aimed at boosting creativity. The emoji library is available on Figma and Github. Jon Friedman, Microsoft’s CVP of design and research, was quoted saying to The Verge, “The more open source we are internally and externally, the more product excellence we can build, and the more relevant we can be for all of humanity.” The company will let creators pick 3D emojis and remix them into stickers.
