Starting with the ones that defo need a shoutout, there will now be emojis of a manual and mechanical wheelchair, a ear with a hearing aid, a deaf person, some more same-sex couple ones are also being added among others. As if it wasn’t difficult already to choose between the cute animal emojis—otters, sloths, and cute doggos on a leash will be added to the list too. Food emoji enthusiasts, there’s something in it for you too! You will now be able to bombard all our chats with some fun emojis like lotsa butter, garlic to send the stinky creeps in our chat list, and more. Have our prayers been answered? Hell yeah!
Even though there are 59 emojis approved, if you see technically and consider the gender and skin-tone options, the number becomes much higher. The Emojipedia blog post explained this and said,
Emoji 12.0 is comprised of 59 distinct new emojis; 75 when gender variations are taken into account; and 230 new emojis when all skin tone options are also included.
