New Emojis are on the Way


From…..Unicode Consortium, is the nonprofit ground that regulates the official set of emojis.  They just announced the finalized list of the 157 new emojis for 2018, which should hit phones in the summer or  fall.

Here’s a few . . .

 1.  Six new yellow faces, including a hot face, a cold face, and one that’s partying.
2.  Men’s and women’s faces with red hair, brown curly hair, and white hair.  Oh, and BALD faces.  No more having to use the moon emoji or the volleyball, bald people.
3.  Superheroes and supervillains with different skin tones and hairstyles.
4.  Legs, feet, a bone, and a tooth.
5.  New animals including a raccoon, hippo, kangaroo, swan, and peacock.
6.  And other random new objects like a skateboard, teddy bear, cupcake, softball, receipt, magnet, ball of yarn, sponge, toilet paper, and pirate flag.
