Using only words to express your emotions is very difficult when it comes to chatting. I can’t remember life before emoji, can you? If emojis are at all the world in miniature of social progress, mankind has come a long in these recent years. Today our chats seems incomplete without usage of emojis. If you can’t seem to find just the right emoji to accurately capture your feelings in text messages, you won’t have to struggle anymore. Nothing gets us more elevated than the promise of 56 NEW emojis, and the latest update is going to be truly phenomenal.
Brace yourself, 56 new emojis are coming!! If there’s any accuracy to the news, you’ll see some new subtle distinction in emojis. Get your texting thumbs ready, because a whole new surplus of emoji options will be adorning your group texts and Instagram posts in next few months.
According to USA Today, 56 new emojis are en route to our phones and our group chats once Unicode Consortium- the company responsible for approving all emoji designs- launches Unicode 10.0. They released a beta list of all existing emojis, including 56 new ones due for launching later this year. The release also includes a set of Typicon marks and symbols, and also a Bitcoin sign. In recent years, emojis have become a necessary tool of communication. Mitchell Stephens, a professor at NYU stated that, “Emojis are doing what the tone of voice did on the telephone and what gestures, tones and facial expressions did in interpersonal communication. It gives people something that has been missing in writing for the past five and a half thousand years.”
Forget the basic happy or sad face: Users will see a few more incredible faces, including starry-eyed smiley, Twitter’s fave puking emoji, head exploding out of confusion, symbols covering a mouth in utter fury, a ‘whoopsie-daisy’ kind of face, even a smiley with an eyeglass (remember being an old-school detective, I guess?) and emoji that raises one eyebrow for use when you’re suspicious. Also includes: woman in headscarf(probably hijab) emoji first proposed by 15-year-old girl and a breastfeeding emoji. There are a host of mythical beings like mermaids, genie, vampires, fairies, elves, witches and wizards. Some of these are gender-inclusive, other emojis that have been out of the picture for way too long include male version of Tinkerbell, woman climbing an actual wall(looking at it kind of got me out of breath). New animals are included(zebra!), snacks(pretzels!!) and flags. More importantly, new food emoji have been included like a pie, a coconut, head of broccoli, a dumpling and a sandwich.
Pretty sick of there not being a crisps emoji, like *bro, you can’t have a sandwich without crisps*. Check out whole list of emoji on Emojipedia.
The new emoji might be not out now, but it gives us ample of time to figure out how we are going to use the new emoji and make sense out of it. These emojis give you life, but you’ll have to wait to update your iOS to 11.1 or 11.2. Namaste right here and let’s wait for that meditating emoticon (Ommmmmm). And maybe a period one, too?
