New emojis for Emoji 15.0 are previewed, including “high-five” and pink heart

Written by admin
New emojis are coming to your messaging app soon, including a “high-five” emoji that will no doubt be used a lot. The actual name of this emoji is ‘pushing hand’. It is one of the many new emojis that were viewed on the Emojipedia reference site and submitted to the Unicode Consortium for approval. The latter is responsible for worldwide emoji standards and releases.
In addition to ‘pushing hand’ or ‘high-five’, there are other new emojis such as a trembling face, pink, light blue and gray hearts, a Khanda (symbol of the Sikh faith), the Wi-Fi icon (wireless) . , a tuft of hair, a moose, a donkey, a jellyfish and more. Other new emoji in view include a moose head, a crow, a goose, a pair of maracas, a pea pod, a wing, a flute, a blackbird, ginger, hyacinth, and a folding hand fan.
Unicode is expected to give final approval for Emoji 15.0 in September. At that point, the newly selected emoji would be sent to major operating system platforms and distributed via software updates in 2022-2023.

Keith Broni, the editor of Emojipedia, said in a blog post, “While some may not make the cut, most submitted for approval have been historically confirmed.” With World Emoji Day coming Sunday, Emojipedia says emoji usage on Twitter is hitting record highs. 22% of tweets sent this month contain at least one emoji. That’s more than the 20.59% of tweets that contained an emoji last year and the 20.15% that contained an emoji two years ago.

While Broni made it clear that the new emoji featured today were previews and subject to change, last year’s previews all made it to the final version, including the controversial pregnant man.

When Emoji 15.0 is introduced, the design of each emoji that “makes the team” may be different from what they look like today. Emoji design also changes between suppliers. We should also point out that the golden age of emoji making may be behind us. In January 2020, 117 new emojis were approved for Emoji 13.0 and peaked at 217 in September 2020 for Emoji 13.1. In September 2021, 112 new emojis were green-lit for Emoji 14.0, and this September Emoji 15.0 is estimated to have only 31 new emojis.
