While Google engineers bend over backwards to repair the horrific mess that is email , the company caught us by surprise today with its latest Gmail update: Google is rolling out new emojis and themes.

The new themes are pretty easy to ignore — they’re just a selection of attractive photo backgrounds — but the new emojis are, at the very least, something new to play with while we ponder how “revolutionary” Apple Music truly is .

If you don’t yet see the new emojis in Gmail, please note: Google says “all of today’s web updates are rolling out over the next few days.”

Gmail’s featured a gargantuan selection of dated-looking emojis since 2013; we’re not sure what’ll happen to them as this update rolls out.
