Ladies and gents, these are your new Emoji for 2019

The Unicode Consortium is the keeper of the keys when it comes to Emoji. The group's members include such notable names in the mobile industry as Apple, Microsoft and Huawei. The Consortium announced today (via emojipedia) that of the 104 Emoji submitted for Unicode 12.0, it has accepted 59 new ones. Including different skin tones, there are a total of 230 new emoji options that will be available in Unicode 12.0.

The new Emoji includes such animals as a sloth, a guide dog, a service dog and an otter. Food being added includes a waffle, falafel, an oyster and a stick of butter. A manual and motorized wheelchair both made the cut as did a yo-yo, a stethoscope and a drop of blood. The video at the top of this article will reveal all of the upcoming Emoji to you.

Now, it is up to the phone manufacturers and developers of messaging apps to produce their own versions of the new 59 Emoji, which will be officially released a month from today on March 5th. However, Unicode says that the new Emoji probably won't show up on mobile handsets until September or October.

To refresh your memory, last year Unicode added 66 new Emoji for Unicode 11.

What happened to emoji actually representing emotion? The new kids growing up are basically using modern hieroglyphics, no one is gonna have a clue what they were trying to say in the future.

Hell yes. It looks like they added nothing I would ever use. Maybe the yawn one to tell my wife I'm tired at work.

Instead of calling them millennials can we call them generation snowflakes? because that's what they're, a bunch of sweet mellow sugary snowflakes of poop...

Nope, I was born at 1990. Call me grumpy, but these people want to stand out amongst everyone else because they don't accept they're born male or female but they want all of us to accept whathever the gender they imagine to be. Being any of the 105^2 genders is the new normal. I just wish a giant asteroid come to format the planet again...

I was born in the 90's and fully agree. It is absolutely stupid the way society continues to degrade. Isn't it great that in the name of inclusive we go out of our way to remind people they are different.

Black humor my friend. Is not about being disrespectful, is about being offensive to as many people as possible, ¡no one is safe!

Wonder if theres a white guy with red hair, and his asian wife with black hair, offended that they don’t have a couple emoji that ‘represents’ them.
