Unicode 7.0 gets 250 new emojis, to be available only when Google updates Android to that effect

Expressions are the powerful way to express your feelings and thoughts, but with the advent of Social networking and Smartphones visual communication is kept to minimum and people moved on to the texting and chatting. However, technology always have a solution to every problem and in this case the solution is the inclusion of emoji icons, smiley faces and many iconic pictures that are included in the text-based services.

These iconic pictures help in expressing your thoughts and share your feelings through a visual appearance. Emojis form the largest of these group, and initially they appeared in the Japanese electronic messages and web pages but later on included in the messaging services. However the Emojis are quite old and many users have long agitated for more diverse emojis that suits the modern global communication.

After a long wait and demands, today the organization that standardizes text across the software industry has responded by releasing the Unicode Version 7.0. Unicode’s lists a whopping 250 new emojis in the update. The new Emoji list features expressions like slightly frowning face, slightly smiling face and many demanded emojis like a hot pepper, a chipmunk, a hand with a raised middle finder. A religious symbol “OM” is also included in the list following many requests.

The new Emojis will be available in the July this year, however as Unicode only sets the standards, so the Android, IOS developers has to release an update to bring Emojis to the devices which might take some time. The OS developers can also choose to exclude some of the characters that may disturb the integrity and ethnicity, for instance the middle finger Emoji may not even get included in the OS update.

The new Emojis are not yet surfaced the Emojipedia, however a long list of new Emoji names was released which sums to an approximate 250 Emojis. Here is the list of the new Emojis in the Unicode 7.0 version, the Emoji icons will be updated later once obtained.
