These Emojis May Be On Your Phone Next Year


Posted on

🚨 BIG NEWS 🚨 The list of new emoji that may find their way onto your 📱 next year has been released!

The Unicode Consortium, the group of tech companies that oversees the system that converts computer code to readable text, has released a list of 67 emojis that have been accepted as candidates for potential inclusion into the official Unicode language. 😮😮😮

In May next year the Unicode Technical Committee will meet to determine which emojis will make the final cut and be released for use in June 2016.

You can read the full list here, but here's what the best of them might look like...

We might get some new transport options, including a canoe, a scooter, and a motor scooter — because, really, how many trains do we need?!?

And now to the reason we're all here: FOOD. We see a potential avocado, carrot, potato, bacon, paella-type dish, "stuffed flatbread" (i.e. shawarma), and a healthy salad.
