Google to replace gun emoji with water pistol
Reports say that Google is replacing is gun emoji with a water pistol.
Google could not be immediately reached for comment to confirm the emoji update.
The decision follows a similar decision by Twitter earlier this month. Emojipedia also reports Facebook confirmed it would update its emoji as well, also introducing a plastic water pistol.
USA Today reports that the trend was started in 2016 by Apple, which replaced the emoji of a real handgun with a water pistol through an update to iSO 10.
