230 new emojis
Unicode finalized a list of 230 new emojis for 2019. That might sound like a lot, but if we don’t count the new variations of colors, skin tones and gender, it’s actually only 59. But these are really essential emojis! How have we gotten this far without a cute otter, an endearing sloth, a sly skunk, a goofy orangutan or a graceful flamingo? And our recipes have not been the same since the appearance of the indispensable garlic, onion and butter. You can even sit on a chair and play banjo. In addition, the consortium has added a series of emojis pertaining to disabilities: there are two guide dogs, motorized or unmotorized wheelchairs, prosthetic arms and legs, ears with hearing aids, figures that sign that they are hard of hearing, a white cane for the blind, and figures using this cane to guide them. Most users will see these new emoji upload to their devices throughout 2019 with software updates.
