There’s great news for emoji fans.
The Unicode Consortium yesterday, publicly revealed off Unicode 14.0.
The new standard will bring 37 new emojis to diverse platforms and applications. These include keyboard apps, instant messaging apps, and more.
The new emojis include a troll, a finger heart, a saluting face, biting lips, and heart hands among others. The new emojis will let users express themselves more proficiently with fewer words and more graphical elements during a text conversation.
Unicode 14.0 includes 838 new characters, of which 37 are fresh emoji code points.
These new emojis will make their way to all major platforms towards this year-end or early next year.
Here’s a list of new emojis:
- Melting Face
- Face with Open Eyes and Hand Over Mouth
- Face with Peeking Eye
- Saluting Face

Moreover, the release includes variations and skin tones of these new emojis, bringing the total to 112 new designs.
Unicode 14.0 takes the total number of emoji to 3,633, including classifications for gender or skin tone, flags, and the components used to create keycap, flag, and other sequences. It’s worth noting that this up-to-date release adds to the list of rising gender-neutral emojis that were released with Unicode 13.0 last year.
Additionally, Unicode 14.0 will bring support for the Handshake emoji with a combination of skin tones to all platforms and fix the cross-platform display issue with the Face with Hand Over Mouth emoji.
It's a piece of exciting news for emojis lovers!
