These 10 New Emojis Will Totally Up Your Texting Game This Month

"Fingers crossed" your fave is on the list.

On June 2, Unicode 9.0 announced the addition of 72 new emojis to its current collection. Set to release on June 21, the internet is already freaking out about the face palm, the selfie, and, of course, bacon

While these three are fan favorites for obvious reasons, other emojis deserve their due. Get to know these top 10 new emojis so you can start planning out your best conversation yet.

1. Fingers Crossed

Just like your middle school library πŸ“š,, this emoji was looooong overdue. But now that it's here πŸ‘‹ , good-bye to the days of texting ✌ followed by a short novel explaining your emoj-intentions. 

Finally, you can wish a friend good luck without πŸ™Š!

2. Dancing Man

Not only doesπŸ’ƒ get a partner, but he just happens to bear a striking resemblance to a young John Travolta circa Saturday πŸŒƒπŸ˜·πŸ”₯. Mind if we βœ‚ in? 

3. Shark

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on your πŸ“± ... 

Seriously, though, this emoji couldn't come at a better ⏰ since Shark Week starts on June 26, which happens to coincide with the update's release. Well played πŸ‘, Emoji Lords, well-played πŸ‘.  

4. Pregnant Woman

You can bet the first ever πŸ‘ΆπŸ“’ written entirely in emojis is already a virtual bundle of πŸŽ‰, just waiting to be 🐣. 

5. Bronze Medal

We've all been in a πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ text with that one πŸ™ who's just a bit slower on the uptake than everyone else. What do they deserve for the most mediocre of efforts πŸ˜’? The bronzest of medals.

6. Shrug

πŸ™… more needing to save Β―\_(ツ)_/Β― in your πŸ““ so you can copy and paste it into texts at a moment's notice. While many die-hard shruggers will stick to the original, at least you've got options πŸ™‹. 

7. Black Heart

Misery loves company, and so does πŸ’€. We're pretty sure he asked for a πŸ‘Ά brother and got the black heart emoji instead. While it might not be the most πŸ˜‚ of emojis, you'll probably end up using it just as much as ❀.

8. Cartwheel Girl

If you thoughtπŸ’ƒ was the best way to express excitement, you've got another emoji coming. This gymnast is just what you need to show you've literally 🐬-ed (Flipper, get it?) over receiving some good πŸ“°. 

9. Clinking Glasses

Bachelorette parties (and Bachelorette viewers) everywhere are  πŸ™ŒπŸ™πŸ‘ over this latest addition to the emoji collection. What better way to πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ a whole new set of emojis than with a celebratory emoji? 

Like champagne itself, this is the 🎁 that keeps on giving. 

10. Juggling

No emoji is more πŸ‘Œ-ly suited to convey that you're so busy juggling πŸ’― activities you don't have time to ✏ actual words than the juggling emoji.
