Diverse emojis arrive on Windows 10 build 10547

Back in May, we reported that Microsoft would be the first company to support the middle finger emoji. Now, in the latest Windows Insider build, it looks like Microsoft has implemented new diverse emojis in Windows 10 build 10547.

Over the course of a few years, emojis have exploded in popularity. In fact, the popularity of emojis has become so heightened that Sony is releasing an animated movie sometime in the near future. While emojis started out simple, the have slowly become more diverse, literally. Apple initiated the diversity with its iOS 8.3 update that introduced "skin tones and same-gender couples". Now, Windows Insiders will be able to take advantage of the new emojis found in Windows 10 build 10547.

For those interested, be sure to register to become a Windows Insider to get the latest build of Windows 10. Currently, Windows 10 is available as a free update for those running a valid copy of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1.
