Those little pictographic symbols on your keyboard are about to get much more expansive now that Unicode 7.0 has been released. Yes, the designers of emoji don't just come up with this stuff on their own – they are part of the text presentation standards that keeps letters consistent across platforms. Included in the new emoji are gems like a thermometer, a chipmunk, a middle finger, and a diesel locomotive... which I'm sure we'll all get lots of use out of.


Most of the new emoji are objects, not people. There are also a lot of variations on the same object. For example, there are speech bubbles in every orientation you can imagine as well as both "Slightly Frowning Face" and "Slightly Smiling Face." Finally I can express my limited range of emotion in emoji form. Still not impressed? How about "Raised Hand With Part Between Middle And Ring Fingers?" That's right, live long and prosper, guys.

These are just the descriptions of each symbol, but they come with a Unicode ID. It's up to the various Unicode member platforms to design pictographs that fit with each one's style (be patient). That's why the same emoji on iOS looks vastly different than it does on Android. Unicode keeps things from getting too disconnected, though. A middle finger will always be a middle finger, no matter which platform your target is using.

      Be thankful that you aren't dealing with the HTC emojis. They are hideous.

      • JC

        That's exactly what I thought right before I read your comment. I used to be able to see the regular android emoji and then it would turn into HTC's when I selected one, but ever since I did the update to the gallery/hangouts app I don't even get that anymore. :(

    • Baleeted

      I think that the stock android emojis look the best out of every single one available. they're cute as well as doing what they need to! ☺

    • Simon Belmont

      Well. It's better than the iOS emoji, IMO.

      The iOS emoji gives you an anthropomorphic super happy smiling pile of crap. I prefer my Android pile of crap with flies and stink lines as it's more realistic.

    • gonsa sba

      You can try my mod, which you can change the emojis to iOS.

      is it possible to use google's emojis , instead of the android stock by samsung :/

  • Montygue

    Huzzah! Just what we needed, more emojis in the world. At least with these I can express my dislike for them and those that overuse them, with the angry fist, angry face and middle finger.

    I'm just hoping Firefox adds full color emoji soon.It's annoying to see them on the onscreen keyboard in color then type it and it's B&W. 🍔🍕🍩😈😏😝😤🎒

    • Brad

      Chrome gets squares... blank, empty, no character found squares.

      • philnolan3d

        Yeah that's how I knew if was Firefox and not just Windows in general.

      • Mexnoob

        It easy to fix, just download chromoji

        • Brad

          eh, it's my work PC and as often as the issue comes up... not worth it

      • Simon Belmont

        I wish Chrome would just build it in. They could just use the same emoji that they use in Android.

        Seems like a no-brainer to me. Haha.

  • Matt Fox

    How do I download them?

    • Simon Belmont

      When Google adds them to the OS, probably. There's no pictures associated with the new characters code yet, so nothing would show up.

      I'd guess you'll probably be waiting a little while before you see them in Android. My two cents.

      • Brad

        nah, i bet they're quick. Took 'em a while to jump on the bandwagon, but they did.

        • Simon Belmont

          Well, by a little while, I mean maybe in a month or two, not six months or more. Those emoji graphic resources do need to be added at the system level, I believe.

          Keyboards can show the new emoji in a picker, but if the system doesn't have the graphic resources associated with the new character codes, they won't show up in the system (think text boxes and stuff). I would think it would be in a minor bump in Android after I/O, like if we get Android 4.5, it could be in Android 4.5.1 (or 5.0.1, if we get Android 5.0).

  • Simon Belmont

    Ha. It looks like that bamboo is giving me the middle finger, too.

    All hail the crass bamboo. Up yours.

  • Dave

    So where do I find these emojis then?
    Will they be added to WhatsApp or to the smiley-icon that appears at the bottom right in Hangouts?

    Thank you for your article! It touches my heart deeply because I have recently went through something similar case .About 3 years ago my husband left me and 2 of our kids for 3years to another woman. During this years of our separation I was so broken, so I finally went to a friend of mine who directed me to a spell caster Dr. Oduduwa (dr.oduduwasamuelhightemple@gmail.com) who helps me in reunite my family and then i felt peace and felt whole love again. After the casting of the love spell, My Ex-husband offered me a job, to work at his His company. so I obeyed and went. After working together in 1 week we had come closer & starting dating and hanging out as a family with the kids again, Dr. Oduduwa has restored our marriage in a way I have NEVER expected, but I'm truly Thankful!

    Contact Dr. Oduduwa today on: dr.oduduwasamuelhightemple@gmail.com

  • joan kenneth

    Hello My name is Joan Kenneth, I have been frustrated for the past 4 years with my two kids living without my husband who surprisingly left home with a girl named Mercy, One faithful day a friend of mine came visiting and I told her about the situation I am in for the past four years, she then told me about Dr omamen. That he is a very powerful man, at first I never wanted to believe her because I have spent a lot going to different places but she convinced me so I had no choice because I really need my husband back. So we contacted Dr omamen who told me all I needed to do which I doubted. But the greatest joy in me today is that Dr omamen was able to bring my husband back to me and now we are living happily as never before, thanks to you Dr omamen. If you have problems of any kind I will advice you to contact him with this Email (omamenspiritualtemple@GMAIL.com) and you will never regret it. Once again Thanks to you Dr omamen

    try it, I mailed the spell caster, he told me there was no problem that
    everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me
    before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day,
    that was around 4:00pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the
    call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened,
    that he wanted to return to me, that he love me so much. I was so happy and
    surprised. Since then I have made a promise that everybody I know will
    never have a relationship problem, that I will refer them to the spell

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when
    all hope was lost for me to unite with my fiance that i love so much. Am
    from Illinois and my name is Catherine Wilson, I had a fairy tale kinda
    love story and everyone around me call me the lucky one for having such
    a sweet love life but even the best love story can still go sour,
    before things went south I tried my best to make things work with
    everything that I can think of but thing still keeps going south.
    breakup is a bitch and dealing with life was difficult and everyone see
    you like an object of pity. I desperately had to do something and that
    was when i was introduced to this spiritual home, I was told once that
    if you need it bad enough you will go for it. i came across many
    spell casters but they promised and nothing came up but an African
    friend who was my neighbor introduced me to Dr Ogunlade and i emailed
    him with his email : ogunladetemple@gmail.com and he replied me so
    kindly and help me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone
    for 4 months. At first his instructions sounded barbaric but I followed
    them and inexplicable results happened within 72hrs, Am so happy and
    all thanks to the GREAT DR. Ogunlade that helped me with his white love
    powers. If you have any kind of problem email him now for help with

    hello every body my name is Jennifer Wayne I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr OYINBO help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage� I was married for 3years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time� it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce� I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don�t want to lose him but everything just didn�t work out� he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce� I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out� I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice� He did special prayers and used his power� Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kid are happy too and we are expecting our second child� I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news� Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need�s it� You can email him through his email address prophetoyinbojesus@yahoo.com

    My name is David smith , my family and i live in UK .It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr omo really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr omo castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr omo can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his email:extremlovespell5@yahoo.com You can contact him for any help, he is very powerful and can solve any kind of problem below.

    My name is Susan i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr.OYINBO brought my husband back to me, i had three lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would com back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that’s why i want to say a big thank you to Dr.OYINBO spiritual temple. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar such as Love, Money, Power, Success, Sickness, Pregnancy, Hiv Cure,Marriage, Job, Protection, Lottery, Court Case, Luck and contracts, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at: prophetoyinbojesus@yahoo.com
