There Are 117 New Emojis Being Released This Year!

2020 = the emojis that we never knew we needed…

All this time, who knew that an italian hand gesture emoji would beautifully explain how great your homemade wings are in the Super Bowl Potluck group chat? A new round of emojis are coming our way, and thanks to an Emojipedia YouTube video, we’ve got a sneak peek on what’s to come.

Emoji Version 13.0 will feature 117 of the lastest characters to join the digital family including gender-inclusive and skin tone options. Be on the lookout for additions like bubble tea, tamales, a smiling face with a tear, as well as a transgender flag!

The update comes as an effort to illustrate life experiences and foster a culture that is inclusive of users around the world.

Check out a full list of all the upcoming emojis, here!
