1. Emoji recently announced that 250 new emoji icons will be added to the Emojipedia in July.
The emojis are a part of the Unicode 7.0 software update from Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
Not many photos have been released of the new icons, but they’ll be added to the Emojipedia “as soon as they are available.”
Some of the new emojis are computer-themed, such as floppy disks, printers, and keyboards. We’ll also be able to go to war with our friends via text, as Emoji is releasing military airplanes, boats, and rockets.
