112 new emoji coming via Emoji 14.0 update; Heart Hands to Pregnant Man, check list
From melting face, biting lips, heart hands and a peeking face, here are the 112 new emoji that will be coming to all of your devices in 2022 as part of the latest Emoji 14.0 announcement. Check list of upcoming Emoji.
Emoji 14.0 update: Over the past decade, emoji have gained an increasing amount of significance in our daily conversations. This is partly due to the fact that communication has now moved from computers, emails and instant messaging apps which featured a few ‘emoticons’ to smartphones that come with chat apps supporting hundreds of emoji. These Emoji save you from typing a message and instead, all you have to do is pick a suitable one to send to family and friends. As of September 2021, users will have a total of 3,633 officially recognised emoji which include skin tone and gender variations.
Every year, users are treated to new emoji that are designed keeping in mind various trends and new designs, after which a few are narrowed down and finally selected to be part of the next Unicode update. This means that once these choices are finalised, manufacturers begin to include them in their next version, allowing users to see and share them on their devices. Now, the Unicode Consortium has officially announced all of the new emoji coming as part of Unicode 14.0 which will be available to users next year.
