New emojis will be rolling out on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Android, and other devices this year.
Included in Emoji Version 13.0 are the “Italian Hand,” disguised face, ninjas, anatomical body parts, smiling face with tear, the Transgender flag, new animals and food, parents feeding baby, and more.
Unicode Consortium shared the official list of the latest 117 emojis. Additional emojis include gender-inclusive options (even Santa), a black cat, polar bear, seal, bubble tea, fondue, tamale, new tools, a boomerang, and insects.
Some of the new emojis are alternatives to current symbols that increase gender-inclusivity, such as a woman or gender-inclusive person in a tuxedo, and a gender-neutral person or a man in a veil. These additions are part of a growing push to “make more consistent set of gender options across the board, and expands upon the 138 new gender-neutral emojis added in late 2019 as part of Emoji 12.1,” the outlet writes.
In December, a petition for Apple to make Baby Yoda an emoji, titled "Make Baby Yoda an Emoji," was launched on Change.org and has almost reached its goal of 75,000 signatures.
