Twemoji, Twitter’s open-source emoji library that supports the most recent Unicode emoji specification, will be updated in WordPress’s upcoming 5.8 release. A heart on fire, a mending heart, a face with spiral eyes, a face in the clouds, and a face exhaling are among the five new smileys and emotions included in version 13.1.0.

For all variations of the “Kiss” and “Couple with Heart” emojis, version 13.1 adds support for mixed skin tones. It also lets you add a bearded man or woman with any skin tone.
