Chrome 98 Beta is now downloadable, comes with improved emojis and new features

Emojis are one of the best and easiest ways to express our feelings and moods while we chat with our friends in messaging apps and other social networks. Some users only use emoji to communicate with each other. Well, Google will soon improve this experience in Chrome 98.

According to a new report from Android Police, Google Chrome 98 will add a new font format. This new font format is called COLRv1 and it will greatly improve the sharpness of the emoji by allowing 2D glyph definitions.

Another advantage of using this new format COLRv1 es that will reduce the size of the emoji. The usage rate of social media apps has increased significantly and a reduction in the size of the emoji will also help decrease the load on the servers.

In addition, COLRv1 will allow for smaller file sizes while improving quality, making especially large emoji look much better compared to commonly used bitmap fonts.

However, it is not the only novelty that we find in the Chrome 98 Beta that is now available for download. Next, we detail the other news of the browser:

Installed web apps will feel even more native on the desktop
