Unicode Consortium has just validated a list of 217 new emojis that will be distributed gradually in 2021, according to the publishers.
While the majority are variations of existing emojis, this year’s new emojis have a heart on fire, another being repaired, an exhaling face, a face in the clouds, a head with spiral eyes, an asexual person and a bearded woman.
The variants apply to couples who are shown with a heart, both heterosexual and homosexual, in all possible combinations depending on their skin color. In fact, all couples will soon be able to recognize themselves and associate themselves with a dedicated emoji. It is up to Google, Apple and others to now give them the look they want and to distribute them gradually.
Among the requests for emojis that have still not been fulfilled are acne, Bitcoin, Belgian beer and yogurt. ̵
