Those cute emoticons that let you send smiling poo to friends and family. 2018 is now here, which means dozens of new emojis will be landing in your smartphone soon.
As a red-haired writer, what I am most here for is the addition of Red Haired emojis.
“People felt like they were getting left out,” says Jeremy Burge of the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee (UES), which is part of the Unicode Consortium, which sets the international standards for emojis, among other things. “Even though I don’t have red hair myself, that was the number one request we got for the last two years running. So I felt like I should step up and try and make that happen,” Burge stated.
According to the Emojipedia 6.0 for the 2018 release, Users may be able to change emoji direction in 2018.
Emojipedia users have long requested a way to flip emoji direction, and if this feature goes ahead it is likely to target only the emojis that would benefit from it most.
Well, you can’t win ’em all.
