Emoji characters are by far the best thing that has ever occurred to mobile based IM and chat services. With a range of emoji characters already at our disposal on the iOS and Android platform, fans are in for a treat where as many as 38 brand-new emoji could be visited the previously mentioned mobile platforms soon enough.

According to a document released by Unicode Consortium – – the men accountable for the emoji standard – – the team is currently considering 38 new emoji characters as part of an upgrade to the existing collection.


These brand-new emoji characters have been drawn up in response to developing search trends for images on Google, as well as some that have actually been requested by fans around the world. “These symbols are thought about for incorporation into Unicode for reasons such as compatibility use, popular demands from online communities, and filling the spaces in the existing set of Unicode emoji.”

Below is a total list of the emoji characters that are being considered, but have not been authorized by the consortium yet.

Now whether all 38 of these expressive littles images will actually get approved for public use is uncertain, but thinking about that these have been forged with demands and establishing trends in mind, we may just see them arrive on our smart phones, I mean, can there be enough emoji anyways?

According to Unicode:“It must be kept in mind that the web search engine results in the ‘‘ Notes ‘is not a conclusive selection aspect; it is a sign, but may not completely reflect the prospective appeal of the matching image amongst online neighborhoods.”

The Unicode Consortium had actually previously revealed a set of 250 new emoji characters, which it has been working on in combination with Apple. With the release of iOS 8.3, Apple had diversified its ‘‘ people’ emoji set with skin color. And let’s simply hope today’s upgrade from Unicode bears fruit sooner instead of later on.

It’s time we begin seeing more emoji!
