The emoji list 11.0 from Unicode Consortium is out and it features 157 new emojis enabling us to better express ourselves in humanity’s first language: icons!
People are also pretty excited that this new emoji list will present greater representation for different kinds of people like the elderly, those with curly hair, red hair and bald heads.
The list also includes emojis for “hot,” “cold,” and “woozy,” giving us a greater palette to convey what/how we’re feeling.
Other additions include: Goggles, Lab Coat, Hiking Boot, Woman’s Flat Shoe, Raccoon, Llama, Hippopotamus, Kangaroo, Badger, Swan, Peacock, Parrot, Lobster, Mosquito, Microbe, Mango, Leafy Green, Bagel, Salt, Moon Cake, Cupcake, Compass, Bricks, Skateboard, Luggage, Firecracker, Red Gift Envelope, Softball, Flying Disc, Lacrosse, Nazar Amulet, Jigsaw, Teddy Bear, Chess Pawn, Abacus, Receipt, Toolbox, Magnet, Test Tube, Petri Dish, DNA, Fire Extinguisher, Lotion Bottle, Thread, Yarn, Safety Pin, Broom, Basket, Roll of Paper, Soap, Sponge, Infinity, Pirate Flag
These additions will bring the number of emojis to 2,823. They’re expected to be available later this year.
