We might finally be getting a simple pink heart emoji at long last.
Unicode Consortium’s latest draft list has revealed a few new and exciting changes to what is essentially a language of its own – and users can’t wait for certain emojis to hop onto the scene, provided that they aren’t kicked off the list at the last minute.
According to Emojipedia, the reference website for all things Emoji, the launch will take place in September. Most of the new additions on the full list of 31 have been confirmed, but some might not make the cut.
The new members of our keyboards might include very useful additions like the shaking face and high five as well as a few new members to the animal kingdom like a donkey and a jellyfish. An angel wing may also be on the cards as well as three new hearts: baby blue, grey and the long-anticipated pink heart emoji.
The simple pink heart emoji has always been the one heart shade that somehow never made it to the keyboard party before. Avid texters and internet users have demanded the “normal pink heart” emoji’s inclusion for years, to the point where a petition was even made for a regular pink heart emoji.
Hopefully, September 2022 will see our emoji dreams come true.
