This is the first look at new emoji coming next year
Every year, official arbiters of online expression at the Unicode Consortium consider new ways for vocabulary-deficient people to express themselves online. It's a long and drawn-out process for new emoji to be added to the official Unicode list, which means that we're already looking at the emoji under consideration for next year.
Candidates for new emoji next year now include a service dog, every possible combination of couples holding hands, and a deaf person. In total, there are 179 new emoji characters short-listed for inclusion in Emoji 12.0, a new version of our favorite tiny pictures that will be released in the first half of next year.
