For the new emojis announced by the Unicode Consortium, the focus in 2020 is on empathy and inclusiveness which is a refreshing addition to the skin colours

The Unicode Consortium, the guys who actually approve emojis that are sent out to emoji-using platforms every year, have announced a list of 117 new emojis for 2020. Every year this consortium gets suggestions for emojis to add to their already exhaustive list of designs and the last iteration they released, the Emoji 12.1, included emojis like 'farmer with a pitchfork', 'person with probing crane' etc.

Google is one of the names behind the hundreds of suggestions made each year and for 2020 they have decided to focus on representation, inclusion and diversity. This is a refreshing addition to a movement that started with skin colours and then grew to add family emojis with two dads and two moms.
