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 📚,, this emoji was looooong overdue. But now that it's here 👋 , 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 🙊!
2. Dancing Man
Not only does💃 get a partner, but he just happens to bear a striking resemblance to a young John Travolta circa Saturday 🌃😷🔥. Mind if we ✂ in?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back on your 📱 ...
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 👏, Emoji Lords, well-played 👏.
4. Pregnant Woman
You can bet the first ever 👶📢 written entirely in emojis is already a virtual bundle of 🎉, just waiting to be 🐣.
5. Bronze Medal
We've all been in a 👨👩👧👦 text with that one 🙍 who's just a bit slower on the uptake than everyone else. What do they deserve for the most mediocre of efforts 😒? The bronzest of medals.
🙅 more needing to save ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in your 📓 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 🙋.
7. Black Heart
Misery loves company, and so does 💀. We're pretty sure he asked for a 👶 brother and got the black heart emoji instead. While it might not be the most 😂 of emojis, you'll probably end up using it just as much as ❤.
8. Cartwheel Girl
If you thought💃 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 📰.
9. Clinking Glasses
Bachelorette parties (and Bachelorette viewers) everywhere are 🙌🙏👏 over this latest addition to the emoji collection. What better way to 🎉🎊 a whole new set of emojis than with a celebratory emoji?
Like champagne itself, this is the 🎁 that keeps on giving.
No emoji is more 👌-ly suited to convey that you're so busy juggling 💯 activities you don't have time to ✏ actual words than the juggling emoji.
