For all you emoji lovers out there…
41 New Emoji’s have been approved as part of the Unicode 8 update. Andddddd thats not all folks: Unicode 9 will have even more new emoji’s including Palm Face and Fingers Crossed! Exciting times. See info and images below…
41 New Emoji’s – Unicorns, Popcorn and Champers, Oh My! New emojis include the following: Hotdog, Unicorn, Burrito, Cheese Slice, Taco, Champagne, Popcorn and some sort of bird 😉
The Hotdog, Burrito and Taco will be used like the other food emojis but the Cheese Slice is brilliant! A quick and easy way to call someone out for being cheesy. The Champagne bottle will be great for celebratory messages, an add on to the fireworks and balloon emojis. Popcorn goes into food category but also for watching a film or going to the cinema. And what I think is a Chicken, can be also used in many ways. Let your imagination do the work!
My favorite has to be the Unicorn, handsdown!
Here are some images of the new emojis yet to be revealed in Unicode 9: Palm Face, Shrug and Fingers Crossed
I will definitely be using Palm Face when someone says something ridiculous. Shrug for I don’t know. Finally, fingers crossed for everything and anything. I always wanted that Emoji!
Did you know?:
There is an actual Unicode Consortium believe it or not, that decide which Emoji’s make the cut. There are a number of factors to consider. They have to obviously look good on screen but since emoji’s are so small not all designs with look great on screen and they also need to be able to be small but clear as day as to what they are supposed to be.
The Unicode Consortium is already working on Unicode 9 for 2016. Emoji add on’s for Unicode 9 include bacon, avocado, shrug, croissant, owl, selfie, drooling face, and more.
You will be able to express yourself through Emoji form to your hearts content! Have fun.
