World Emoji Day 2018 Twitter Facebook Reveal Usage Statistics Apple Releases 70 New Emoji Characters

On the fifth instalment of World Emoji Day, Apple has revealed a new suite of emoji that will be available later in 2018. These Memoji avatars are a new feature on iOS 12 where you can turn yourself into an Emoji.

The 70 new emojis will be rolled out in a free software update later this year.

For the emoji user underwhelmed by the now available smiling face with hearts for eyes, there will be a new smiling face character with three hearts.

Tomorrow is "World Emoji Day", apparently.

Emojis have become so much a part of our lives that they now even have a day dedicated to them.

Burge said he thinks people will be most excited about the new hair style options as there's been an increased demand for more inclusive emojis.

Trump and Putin meeting in Helsinki
Trump and Putin will meet for their first bilateral summit in Helsinki and will hold a 90-minute one-on-one meeting without aides. Last November, in Vietnam, they agreed to maintain open military channels of communications between their forces in Syria.

The change also seems to be an early celebration for World Emoji Day, an unofficial holiday to celebrate the ubiqitous emoticons, which is on Tuesday.

New animals will also be added to your options, including a kangaroo, parrot, and lobster, along with a handful of food options like a head of lettuce, a mango, a cupcake, and a moon cake. The emojis were originally slated for release in June, but likely won't be joining the text lexicon until August or September.

There are plenty of ways to celebrate your favourite emojis, from those you use every day to others you may not have been noticed before.

On streaming site YouTube, which is owned by Google, happy face emojis were used five times more often than sad ones in comments on the 10,000 most popular videos. There's also a new superhero emoji, and emojis for a softball, and an infinity symbol.

"As always, some of the most vocal requests for new emojis are about representation, and this update delivers some of the most common requests".
