The Complete List of All 117 New Emoji That Hit Keyboards in 2020
Just when we thought there were no more animals or objects left, Unicode upped their game in 2020 and gave us more 100+ new emoji. The release includes a smiling face with a tear, two people hugging, and the already popular pinched fingers emoji, colloquially referred to as an "Italian hand gesture." In the animal kingdom, a black cat, beaver, seal, and a few different insects are getting their representation. For foodies, there's an olive, tamale, and flatbread emoji, but we have a feeling the shady teapot will get a lot of action.
In its continued push for gender inclusivity, Unicode also released a woman in a tuxedo, a man in a veil, a man feeding a baby, and gender-neutral options for each. There's also now a Mx Claus, a gender-inclusive alternative to the standard Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. The Transgender Pride Flag is also a new addition. Get a closer look at each new 2020 emoji ahead.
