230 New Emojis in Final List for 2019


The final emoji list for 2019 has now been approved by the Unicode Consortium and includes a total of 230 new emojis coming to major platforms this year.


Additions include previously drafted candidates such as a Flamingo, Otter, and Guide Dog, as well as a Waffle, Hindu Temple, Sari, Sloth, and Mate.


Circles and squares gain new colors in this release and a much requested white heart emoji is now available for the first time.

In the sixth major emoji update since 2014, much of the low hanging fruit has been addressed prior to this release. Skin tone support was added to the Unicode Standard in 2015, increased representation of women in 2016, gender inclusive people in 2017and hair color additions in 2018.[1]

2019 expands the scope of people that can be represented, including people with various disabilities (proposed by Apple last year), a gender inclusive couple, as well emojis which permit a mix of skin tones for people holding hands.

Emoji 12.0 is comprised of 59 distinct new emojis; 75 when gender variations are taken into account; and 230 new emojis when all skin tone options are also included.

Unicode's announcement today indicates that all the documentation required for vendors implement the new emoji set is now complete. Links to relevant data files, technical documentation and updated charts are all linked within Unicode's post, and will be used by developers to add emoji support to operating systems, apps, and web platforms throughout 2019.

Emojipedia has today updated its sample images as a demonstration of how these 230 new emojis might look when coming to various systems throughout 2019.

These original designs have been created in a glossy "Apple-like" style and show the range of new emojis on offer.

Shown below are are each of the new emojis approved in Emoji 12.0, minus any skin tone variations.


Vendor Preview


For most users, these new emojis will come to devices in software updates throughout 2019.

Those subscribing to the Windows 10 Insider "fast ring" builds gained access to a number of new emojis last year, while Emoji 12 remained in beta.

A number of other designs from Google and Apple are also shown below. All are subject to change prior to final releases, but give a reasonable indication of how these might look on Android and iOS.


Release


The Unicode Consortium will release Unicode 12.0[4] on March 5, 2019.

Changes to Emoji 12.0 since the last draft in October 2018 include some emoji names (One-Piece has been renamed One-Piece Swimsuit), removal of some emoji skin tone support (the last draft showed one family supporting a shared skin tone - but not the other 19 families), and the addition of the gender inclusive pair holding hands (previous versions only included women and men).




Unicode announced the publishing of Emoji 12.0 data files on 2019-02-05 (California / US Pacific Time), and noted that the announcement is ahead of the Unicode 12.0 release to give vendors time to work on their color emoji designs.

Expect to see these on most major operating systems in the second half of 2019. Generally speaking, these tend to come to Android in beta around August, and to iOS in October or November.
