๐Ÿšจ BIG NEWS ๐Ÿšจ The list of new emoji that may find their way onto your ๐Ÿ“ฑ next year has been released!

The Unicode Consortium, the group of tech companies that oversees the system that converts computer code to readable text, has released a list of 67 emojis that have been accepted as candidates for potential inclusion into the official Unicode language. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

In May next year the Unicode Technical Committee will meet to determine which emojis will make the final cut and be released for use in June 2016.

You can read the full list here, but here's what the best of them might look like...

Lots of new faces! There's a cowboy face, a nauseated face, a ROFL face, a drooling face, a lying face, and a sneezing face!
