Unicode Emoji 13.0 has been finalized, and with it come 62 totally new emojis plus 55 gender and skin tone variants. The 117 new glyphs bring us to 3,304 total emojis. The new glyphs include, in no particular order: lungs, a ninja, a black cat, a bison, a woolly mammoth, a beaver (Canadian content), a dodo, a feather, a walrus, a fly, a sweet pepper, a matryoshka, an olive, a teapot, rollerskates, a magic wand, an accordion, a boomerang, a toothbrush, a polar bear, a mousetrap, a tombstone, a cockroach, a screwdriver, one flipflop and a transgender symbol. There’s even a non-gendered Santa Claus, called “Mx. Claus”. But you’ll probably have to wait a while to get these new emoji on your phone, until the various platforms implement them.
