The Unicode Consortium, the organization responsible for managing emojis, released new emojis for 2019 recently.
The consortium has released 59 new emojis, a total of 230 if one counts the variations in terms of gender and colour. The company gave a peek into the new emojis, and they have already created quite a stir.
The new emojis are going to be more inclusive. They include many new animals, foods, people with disabilities, and interracial couples. It also has an emoji for ringed planet, drop of blood, and mechanical limbs.
Emojis are quite popular with social media users. They manage to convey emotions and messages with a single icon. The last released versions had included different skin tones for people. These new ones have gender-inclusive emojis with mixed skin tones. So you will see a man and man holding hands, woman and woman holding hands, man and woman holding hands, and all these are in mixed skin colours.
