Are you ready for emoji overload? Just a few weeks after Unicode Consortium, the organization that standardizes emoji characters across all the operating systems out there, released 38 proposed new emoji for 2016, they has released 36 MORE emojis as part of its 8.0 update. And this time they actually took a few of our very important suggestions! Sad to report that there’s still no Netflix emojji, but there are a few necessary additions in the food department…the time has come for TACO and CHEESE icons! One catch – they’re not quite available yet. They’re being kept locked in a safe guarded by dragons somewhere. But if you’re patient and clear enough space on your phone for the update, you will be gifted with these 36 VIP emojis that will pretty much guarantee never using your letters keyboard again.
1. Bottle With Popping Cork (Celebrate good times, come on!) 2. Burrito (BRB Chipotle run) 3. Cheese Wedge (Heading straight to the top row of your most used list) 4. Hot Dog (This won’t be ready by July 4th. Crime.) 5. Popcorn (Middle School Translation: “Want to go to the movies?”) 6. Taco (We asked, we begged, we received.) 7.
