Last week, when the Windows 10 Anniversary dropped, it introduced a new style of emojis to the Windows 10 experience. As great as the new emojis to be, and as hard as Microsoft worked to bring the new emojis to Windows 10, a group of Windows 10 users on Reddit are still not pleased with the new experience.

Of issue to the Redditors is the fact that Microsoft’s own emojis still show up as black and white in the Microsoft Edge browser.  According to the Redditors, other issues include the fact that Edge or the mail apps do not support Microsoft’s NinjaCat emoji, while Google Chrome’s browser does. Redditor Etegy, however, has a theory as to why it does not work and commented in the thread that the way emojis display depend on the fact if a page specifies utf-8 in the header.

So, what do you think of the emojis in Windows 10? Have you noticed any issues where an app would not display the new style of emojis? Let us know your thoughts by dropping us a comment below!
