72 New Emoji are Coming Soon

UNICODE / MICHAEL STILLWELL

On June 21, 2016 my life was forever changed.

It was finally confirmed that Unicode Standard 9.0 was live and an avocado Emoji would be included in the mix.

As a foodie and self-proclaimed guacamole connoisseur, I’ve been patiently waiting for this specific Emoji to come to fruition for years. Okay, maybe only one or two years but this Emoji has been a long time coming for all of us avocado lovers out there!

Do you know how many text conversations that could’ve benefitted from having an avocado Emoji? Plenty.

But that’s all about to change and needless to say, I’m super excited about the addition of 72 new Emoji. The only downside – it’s going to take some time before we can all use them. It’s not official until companies like Apple and Google approve the Emoji before they’re added to our keyboards. My guess is we might see them added to iOS 10 or Android N.

Until then, here are a few of my favorite Emoji from the Unicode 9.0 release:

Avocado

Croissant

crs

Clicking Glasses (I like to think these are filled with mimosas)

glasses

Black Heart

Green Salad
