The video, released by Google on Wednesday, shows a group of men talking about the new emoji, a move that Google said was meant to bring “a new level of intimacy and fun to online interactions.”
The emoji, which is a stylized version of the word “friend,” is a play on the word friends, a term used in online dating and a favorite in the gay community.
Google said the emoji are not intended to be sexual, but “to make sure everyone’s experience is safe, authentic and authentic enough to keep them connected with each other in ways that they’ve never experienced before.”
The video, titled “What’s going for emoji?,” also shows the men’s faces as they talk about their interactions with people in the emoji, and how they use them.
It also shows what emoji they use for phone calls, and what emoji emoji they make in their chats.
A Google spokesman said the company has been testing the emoji for a year and is “looking for ways to add more.”
“The team is making a lot of progress with these new emoji so that we can give everyone an even better experience on the web,” said Google spokeswoman Erin Giese.
Google plans to expand the use of the emoji with new emoji in 2018.
