When words fail, emojis speak, and over time, it's become a surprisingly complicated language. On Tuesday, USA Today reported that more than 50 new emojis would be released with the next Unicode update this year. I must admit that I was a little skeptical at first, because I've been perfectly content ever since they added the burrito emoji in 2015. However, the future additions include a woman in a hijab, mythical creatures, and dinosaurs. Obviously, this is a cause for praise hands.
On Jun. 20, the Unicode Consortium went public with the full list of the 56 new emojis included in the next update. I repeat: 56. New. Emojis. Some of them have been long-awaited; on top of the woman wearing a hijab, the list includes a bearded man, a breastfeeding woman, and an array of new international foods. (Personally, I'm also pretty stoked about the addition of the hedgehog.) Others are a little unexpected but still useful — the vomiting face may be gross, but it'll get the point across next time you're ill. Then there are a few that maybe weren't totally necessary, but who knows? They might come in handy one day.
There's no word yet on exactly when the update will be released, although according to Refinery 29, it could be as early as the end of July. Emojipedia has tweeted that the new emojis are likely to be supported on phones by the latter half of 2017.
Now that the full list has been released, though, it's just a waiting game — here are the 12 best new emojis to get excited about.
