Bacon, an avocado, a kiwi fruit, a Pinocchio lying face and a selfie are among 72 new emojis set to be released later this month. The Unicode Consortium, the body that controls and approves software standards for characters, has accepted the new emojis for release on June 21. The new images will add to the 1,601 already in existence.
So, for you emoji lovers out there, it will soon be even easier to express yourself through the emoji language, the UK’s fastest growing language. There’s even a range of Olympics based emojis, looking ahead to this summer’s games in Rio.
Note: Despite Unicode’s release date of June 21, the new emojis will not be available until your respective OS provider (Apple, Android or Windows) decides.
