    Your keyboard is about to get 250 new emoji



    Emojing has already replaced texting as the go-to zero-effort communication tool of youngsters everywhere, and all those emoji version of popular songs and TV shows are about a lot more elaborate thanks to huge unicode update.

    250 new emoji have been added to unicode standard 7.0 that is used to standardize the presentation of text across different platforms like iOS, Android, and Windows, and while it’s still up to software makers to actually implement the new standards, you can expect them to land on iOS pretty soon.



    new additions to unicode 7.0’s emoji



    According to the Unicode Consortium which dictates the standards, the new set of emoji characters are mostly derived from characters that have been widely used in Wingdings and Webdings font, that include a middle finger and the Vulcan Salute.

    The new emoji still don’t contain racially diverse humans, but they did manage to pack in four new rockets, seven airplanes and 16 leaf configurations to the delight of botanists everywhere.

    Emoji characters have been supported on OS X since Lion was released, while iOS has always supported the characters and the upcoming iOS 8 release will make emoji more prominent as the international keyboard button is replaced with a smiling emoji.

    Apple says it’s been working with the Unicode Consortium to add more racial diversity to the emoji set, but it looks like those updates won’t make it into the standard early enough for iOS 8. The current standard mostly features white people, and the only persons added to the new character set is a “Man In Business Suit Levitating” and a “Sleuth Or Spy.”

    Here are pictures of all 240+ new emoji coming soon to your smartphone



    Unicode, the group responsible for ensuring that text is consistent in all software around the world, released a new version of its standard earlier this week. When it did, we told you about 240 new emoji characters that were defined in Unicode 7.0. Now, documents have been made available that give a very good idea of what each and every one of the new emoji will look like once they reach our smartphones.

    As we mentioned in our earlier coverage, it is important to note that this is not exactly what the new emoji will look like on the iPhone or on Android phones. Unicode sets guidelines for the characters, and then it’s up to platform makers like Apple and Google to design their own graphics. This is why emoji look different on iOS, Android and other devices.

    With that in mind, Unicode posted a document on its website showing its vision for each of the new emoji it added to the Unicode 7.0 standard. Many of them can be seen in the three images below, and the rest can be found in the PDF document linked down in our source section.
