Emojis, since their release, have become an essential part of our daily communication. Whether you’re chatting with friends, family members, or even coworkers in a workgroup, emojis are used everywhere to add a touch of emotion to what would otherwise be boring monotonous conversations. To make our conversation a bit more interesting, Emojipedia has released a draft of new emojis that will make their way to Android smartphones and iPhones and apps like WhatsApp and the Samsung Keyboard once they’re approved by the Unicode Consortium.

This year’s list of emojis includes a shaking face emoji, which could be used to convey shock, or a loud “no” or even notify people of an earthquake. The list also includes gray, cyan, and pink heart emojis. The list will be incomplete without food and animal emojis. For example, Emojipedia has included ginger, pea pods, and hyacinth in the food and plant category and moose face, jellyfish, donkey, goose, and a black bird in the animal/bird category.

An interesting emoji added to the mix this year is the Wi-Fi symbol. As of now, emoji fans use the emoji to represent the mobile signal when talking about Wi-Fi (yes, the emoji that you’ve used so far is not a Wi-Fi emoji). Now Wi-Fi finally gets its own emoji into the mix. Also Read – YouTube Starts Rolling Out Picture-in-Picture Mode for iPhone and iPad Users: How to Use It
The most notable entry to shuffle, however, is the high-five emojis (yes, it’s finally happening!). This year’s tentative emojis include a left hand emoji and a right hand emoji. These emojis, when used together, will allow users, who until now have been using folded hand emojis, to clap their hands virtually.
In total, this year’s list includes a total of 31 emojis. These emojis are —
— Light blue heart
— Gray heart
— Pink heart
– Pushing hand to the right (in five shades)
— Pushing the hand to the left (in five shades)
— Pea pod
— Folding fan
— Choice of hair
Interestingly, this is the first time the Emojipedia draft only includes 31 emojis. Emojipedia, in its blog, also admitted that “the preliminary list for Emoji 15.0 contains only 31 recommended emojis, while Emoji 14.0 of 2021 contained 112 recommendations, while Emoji 13.0 and Emoji 13.1 of 2020 contained 334 between them (117 and 217, respectively).
That said, this project must first be approved by the Unicode Consortium before the final version of these emojis is released in September this year, after which it will be incorporated by companies such as Google, Apple, Samsung, Meta and Microsoft on their platforms. .
