Apple released the first iOS 16.4 developer beta on Thursday, and while this update is designed for a small user base, the iPhone maker has given us a glimpse of the features to expect when the stable release of iOS 16.4 is sown. Features include new emojis, an updated podcast app, and web app notification support.

Emojis are pretty important and we get 31 of them with iOS 16.4. The first draft of these emojis – which include a moose, a goose, a pink heart and “I’m shattered” – were released last year. Now, with the latest software update from Apple, they will soon be available on iOS devices. Since Thursday’s release is a developer beta, there may still be some design changes to these emojis in the final release.

Apple’s Podcasts app is also updated with new features in the iOS 16.4 update. Specifically, if you’ve subscribed to channels through the Podcasts app, they’ll appear in a new Channels section of your Library. With iOS 16.4, users can easily continue shows on the go by accessing the browse panel in CarPlay mode. The app updates will also be rolled out to the Podcasts iPad and macOS apps via the upcoming versions of iPadOS 16.4 and macOS 13.3.

The Up Next queue in the Podcasts app shows unfinished episodes of the show—even if you’re not following that particular podcast. To remove them from the queue, you must either manually delete them from there or mark them as played.

Apple’s iOS 16.4 update also brings good news for fans of website push notifications. When a user has added a web app to the home screen, developers can send a push notification after asking for permission. The company first demonstrated this feature at last year’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The Safari 16.1 update enabled the W3C standards-based “Web Push” mechanism for macOS Ventura.

In the WebKit blog, Apple says that users can now add web apps from third-party browsers to the home screens. Previously, they could only do this through Safari.

There are some small but notable upgrades coming with iOS 16.4. First, the news app now supports rich preview of mastodon links, so you can see more details about the post. The software update also adds support for T-Mobile’s standalone 5G service for better speeds. Additionally, users can toggle the Always On screen on or off with a focus filter.

You can download the iOS 16.4 beta from a developer profile or wait until the public beta is released to try it.
