A whopping 230 new emojis were approved by the Unicode Consortium a month before their release, which means that a whole bunch of new emoji options are coming to your phone in 2019! Just when you thought there was an emoji for almost everything, Unicode managed to create even more ways to express yourself.
Amongst the 200+ new emojis, there's an otter, a sloth, a skunk, a drop of blood, white and brown hearts, interracial couples, people with disabilities, and a bizarre "pinching hand" emoji, which is causing lots of chatter online. There's no official word yet on when these new icons will drop, but you can check them all out below.
If you enjoy expressing yourself through tiny photo icons, then rejoice! The Unicode Consortium just announced there are 230 brand-new emoji options coming to your phone in 2019.
Technically, there are 59 new emoji styles, but with 171 variants for gender and skin tone, there's a grand total of 230.
The new emojis are not available for use just yet, but you can expect to see them on your phone between now and October of this year.
