In addition to the arrival of the Photos app (which replaces iPhoto and Aperture), the first beta version of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 also brought news related to the famous Emojis.
We commented about a year ago that Apple was working with Consortium Unicode to offer greater technical diversification in Emojis. And this is present in the third Yosemite maintenance update.

In addition to new placeholders (in total there are 46 new blank spaces that mark the arrival of new Emojis between flags and faces), there are also Emojis with a submenu which brings different skin tones (in order to better represent the ethnic plurality of our world). The thing is still incomplete that way because the Unicode 8.0 standards have just been finalized. The new version was approved this week to enter the beta phase (of tests).
OS X 10.10.3 also allows users to browse Emojis in a simpler way. No more need to click on the desired category (although it is still possible); now we can scroll the mouse / trackpad until we find the desired Emoji since all the categories properly identified are also listed in the same window.
To complete the changes to the new version, it was easier to register a Google account at Internet Accounts System Preferences for those who have 2-step verification enabled. This is because nowadays I need to generate a specific password for this; in OS X 10.10.3, Apple solves this problem.
