There’s never such a thing as enough emoji, so new ones are already in the works.
Founder of Emojipedia, creator of emoji (or emoticons if you prefer), Jeremy Berg She launched the unofficial World Emoji Day in 2014, which takes place every year, including this year, on July 17. A precursor to that, Emojipedia make it The visual design of the new symbols, which are likely to be accepted by the Unicode consortium that runs the standard during the fall, and may be included in the Unicode 15.1 update – He writes Computer scientist.
Among the new features are the head shaking and nodding emoji, lime, broken chain, phoenix and brown mushroom, but the visual design also includes four gender-neutral icons representing families with different makeups. Of course, that’s not all, as the next Unicode update will also provide inverted variants of existing symbols, including combinations of skin and hair colors, 108 new variants will be available, with modifications such as running, walking, wheelchairs and other forms that can now “move” not only to left, but also to the right.
As the PC World article highlights, it’s worth knowing that the published illustrations are not the final emojis, but Emojipedia’s own versions, which will be modified by the manufacturer according to the patterns installed in its own system. As mentioned, the new emoji could be approved in September at the earliest, which means that final versions will be available to users sometime in 2024.
