Redmond, Wash. — If you have a Windows 10 Phone and you are on the Fast Ring, you will get a very good surprise.

On Thursday night, unbeknownst to yours truly, Microsoft released the first new build for Fast Ring Insiders in nearly six weeks. This build is the first to be numbered above 15000 – in fact, it is numbered 15007.

It comes with a lot of new features. Although it comes with only one new emoji, it is big, especially if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual or gender non-conforming.

What that means is that Microsoft’s Windows is the first of the mobile operating systems to have the rainbow emoji available. Hopefully, it will not be too long until the gay pride emoji makes its way to the Slow and Release Preview rings, and the Production side of Windows 10 Mobile.

Apple and Google are expected to release the emoji for the IPad, IPhone and Android devices, respectively, before the end of the winter.

Here are the phones in which the gay pride emoji can be downloaded to (Fast Ring only):

Acer Liquid M330
Acer Liquid Jade Primo
Alcatel Fierce XL
Alcatel Idol 4s
HP Elite x3
Microsoft Lumia 550
