Bug Description

Google has released a new version of their Noto Emoji font.

I don't believe this requires a freeze exception since we should do these updates if possible so that emoji display correctly in Ubuntu.

For more details, see

If we don't take this particular update, the biggest downside will be that emojis show up as separate parts. For example, the gender neutral health care worker will appear as two characters (adult and the medical symbol) instead of as a single character.
