Unicode announced 240 additions to the iOS emoji keyboard which is expected to be implemented in July. It’s everything we’ve been waiting for! Right?
- Thermometer – This is great. I can now have an emoji to tell my friends I’m having hot flashes! No, but seriously.
- Black Droplet – Like BLK water? Whats black droplet? That’s ominous. Can you use it like you would ‘Poop’ emoji?
- Wind Blowing Face – Great in instances to emulate Beyonce hair blow. #fierce
- Hot Pepper – Another great complimentary emoji. Finally something to give my smiley hearts in eyes emoji a rest! Used in sentence: “Just got a new haircut!” Your response: hot pepper emoji.
- Fork And Knife With Plate – To illustrate hangry-ness
- Heart With Tip On The Left – What? Tip on the left? What does that mean? Like a dagger? Why wouldn’t you just say dagger?
- Sword/Dagger – I think. Great for vengeful texts, and Game of Thrones recaps. ie: “YOURE LATE AGAIN dagger/sword emoji”
- Derelict House Building – I really would like to see how emoji creators made a house look derelict and so small. V curious.
- Om Symbol – Don’t know why the fuck I would ever need the Om Symbol emoji considering when I use emojis it’s in some frantic/crazed mood.
- Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended – Color me excited for this one! I don’t think y’all understand how long I’ve been waiting for this. Actually, I’m sure you all have been waiting for this moment too…
- No Piracy – Piracy? Like Pirates? Hmmm… not sure if too practical….
- Man In Business Suit Levitating – Umm… What is this? I’ve seen this before I think. Is this an Occupy Wall Street thing? But seriously, how did this come up?
- Lips – Never enough lips emojis!
- Hand Thing from Star Trek – For all you Vulcans out there…
Emoji’s I’m still waiting for:
- cat lady emoji
- drinks on drinks emoji
- “i’m literally dying” emoji
- netflix and sweatpants emoji
- forever alone emoji
- vomiting emoji (and vomit emoji)
- hungover emoji
- talk to the hand emoji
- side eye emoji
- eye roll emoji
- beyonce emoji
- burrito emoji
- black/ice heart emoji

So if someone in Unicode dev could get on that, I’d be so appreciative. praying emoji.
