Last year, Google redesigned the set of emojis for Gboard and gave them a name – Blob. It was the first redesign after Android 4.4 KitKat days. The changes made Google set of emojis resemble Apple’s more popular set but got rid of these other abnormally shaped ones for good, or so we thought.

However, all these emojis are given a new lease of life in the form of animated stickers on Gboard. You can find these guys by pressing the emoji key in GBoard and then tapping on the sticker tab. Hit the “+” icon and you’ll see the blob emoji waving at you. This sticker pack is called: “The Blobs Live On – the classic emojis return for more.”
As far as the compatibility goes, Gboard stickers work well with most of the popular messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Android Messages. But, they still are a miss on other apps like Instagram or Twitter DMs. Check out the sticker pack by using GBoard.
