The Unicode Consortium is a nonprofit that runs a bunch of different standards for the Internet. No one really paid attention to them until a few years ago when we found out they control Emojis.
They just announced 230 new emojis that should roll out to your phone sometime later in the year.
Here are some that are coming:
- A yawning face
- Lots of emojis focused on disabilities (deaf person, people in wheelchairs, blind people, seeing eye dogs, and mechanical arms and legs)
- New animals including the flamingo, sloth, and skunk
- New foods including a waffle, butter, onions, and a juice box
- A drop of blood
- Hand making a pinching gesture
Whose ready for all these new Emojis?
