We're Getting 72 New Emoji!

Everybody stay calm!

Our ability to express ourselves accurately on the internet just got a whole lot easier. 

The official emoji-overseeing body, Unicode, has announced the upcoming release of a whopping 72 new emoji! 

The emoji-creating team has taken your feedback, and is finally bringing you an avocado emoji to express all your breakfast feels.

It will also finally add clinking champagne flutes and a scotch on the rocks to fully illustrate those days when you just need a drink. 

In a topical nod to the Rio Olympics, a gold, silver and bronze medal has been added, alongside a range of sporting activities, from your more traditional sports like boxing and gymnastics, to the more niche types, such as handball and fencing. 

In the spirit of gender equality, we are also getting a prince - akin to the female princess - and a groom, because for some reason we didn't have one of those already. 

They're still subject to change but we think we can agree they're on the right track!

Take a look at the proposed new range:
