New Emoji

The Unicode Consortium has officially signed off on the final list of emoji characters for 2019. With a total of 230 new emojis to feature, this will be the sixth major update to the official emoji list.

Emojipedia has put together a great video previewing what each of these new emoji may look like when they arrive on our devices later this year.

In addition to vital communication tools we never knew we needed like Flamingo, Yawn Face, and Waffle, we're also getting this cute little pinching-hand emoji!

"These images are just samples: vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs", Unicode Constorium states.

That's all really cool, but what we're most excited about is the incredible increase in representation among the icons.

Emojipedia has created a composite image of the coloured shapes expected to be released later this year.

A "period emoji" will be included in the upcoming release of new smartphone images, after almost 55,000 people weighed in to support a campaign aimed at destigmatizing menstruation.

"The inclusion of an emoji which can express what 800 million women around the world are experiencing every month is a huge step towards normalizing periods and smashing the stigma which surrounds them".

People say a picture is worth a thousand words. "They are trying to represent themselves in emojiland", she added.

One of the goals with Emoji 12.0 was to increase the number of people that emojis could represent.
