More new emojis? We say, keep ’em coming please!

The much talked about, long-awaited set of new emojis just rolled out for iOS users a couple of months ago and already, we feel like we need more. “Why isn’t there a groom emoji?” and “Wouldn’t it be great if we had a pancakes emoji too?” and “There needs to be a Batman/bat emoji” and “They forgot to make a butterfly emoji?!” and “There is no bacon emoji, I cannot deal.” and “Seriously, no butterfly emoji?!”, we could go on and on.

Emojis have become such an integral part of our conversations that we can’t do without some of the important ones i.e. bacon. Why write out “bacon” in your Instagram caption for your awesome flatlay brunch picture when you can use an emoji to best express yourself, right? It’s so essential that even Kim Kardashian has her very own set of emojis!


Luckily, the Unicode Technical Committee just announced 79 new candidates to satisfy your emoji-cravings. Amongst the potential contender announced are such as the avocado, facepalm, butterfly, shrug, groom, bat, pancakes, and bacon emojis.

The only problem is not all the emojis on the list will make the final cut. And even if they do, it’ll be a long wait for them to be released plus, it’ll be up to the makers of member platforms like iOS and Android to implement the new Unicode standard.

Remember when the middle finger emoji was only released more than a year after the news first surfaced? Exactly. Let’s hope that they all make it into the next update.

(insert hand with first and index finger crossed emoji here)
