World Emoji Day 2018

World Emoji Day 2018

The unveiling marked an early start to Tuesday's World Emoji Day, a four-year-old holiday that celebrates the popular, wee cartoons.

There will be a cold face, a party face, a pleading face and a face with hearts.

More animals will also be added to the iOS emoji keyboard, including a parrot, a lobster, a kangaroo, and a very intricately designed peacock.

Apple has announced that it will be dropping more than 70 new emoji characters.

World Emoji Day 2018

The announcement is timed to coincide with World Emoji Day, which is July 17. As per statistics revealed by Facebook, users on the social networking platform frequented the 3 heart emoji twice as much as this year compared to last year.

The new emojis arrive later this year in an iOS update, and include a handful of hairstyles. Included are new hair styles, animals, food items, and more.

"As always, some of the most vocal requests for new emojis are about representation, and this update delivers some of the most common requests". The company said in a statement, "There is more than 2,800 emojis and nearly all of them (2,300) are used each and every day on Facebook". We'll keep an ear to the ground for more, but for now, head down to the comments section and let us know what you think of these new emoji.

World Emoji Day 2018 marks the fifth such celebration of emojis, which in less then two decades have gone from a marketing gimmick to a mode of communication that spans all languages.
