New emojis include a goose, pink heart and wi-fi symbol


The Unicode Consortium, which is responsible for approving new emojis, has received sketches of 31 small images that could be part of the upcoming Emoji 15.0 update.

For comparison, Emojipedia had submitted 112 small images to the organization in 2021, and 334 in 2020.

This is the lowest number of new emojis ever recommended by Unicodeconfirms on its site Emojipedia, which acts as an encyclopedia of these small images and which is responsible for submitting the proposals.

For the first time, there are no new people emojis in this batchthe organization added.

Of mammals, hearts and food

Emojipedia and Unicode have been big on diversity and inclusion in recent years, including multiple skin colors and non-binary people in their collection. For the next series, it is a different tone which is given: there is in particular a vibrating face, a flute, a jellyfish, maracas and a wi-fi symbol (exit the antenna emoji).

One hand positioned to clap another, perfect for doing a “clap in there” (high five in English) if paired with another hand, is also included in the list. It could also be used to mark a disagreement, for example. It would be offered in all skin colors.

Pale blue, grey, pink… The color palette for the hearts also promises to be expanded.

In the diet category, ginger is expected to make its debut, as are pea pods.

New animals, such as a goose, a crow, a moose and a donkey, are also likely to appear.

The Unicode Consortium has until September to finalize the list. The images can therefore still undergo modifications, or even go to the cleaver, but it is rather rare. The Emoji 5.0 update is expected to roll out to Android and Apple around Fall 2022 and throughout 2023.
