Over 100 New Emojis Are Coming Including A Dodo And A Piñata
The new selection, announced by Unicode Consortium, features a whopping 117 emojis, including a transgender flag, 'feeding the baby', a dodo, blueberries and a mammoth.
There's also a 'smiling face with a tear' to use when you're feeling emotional, but for all the right reasons.
As well as a 'disguised face' and a pinched finger emoji - which is getting a *lot* of hype online already - there's also a stylish plotted pant and a mystical black cat emoji.
Speaking of fur babies, there's a huge selection of new animal emojis set for 2020. We're talking a polar bear, beaver and even a mammoth.
Other cute characters include a seal and there's also a collection of insects including cockroaches and a beetle.

The food emojis have also had a total makeover. Smartphone users now have blueberries, olives, flatbread and even a bubble tea emoji at the touch of a button - and we've got a feeling they're going to go down very well.
Our already-existing emoji libraries are also having a revamp.
There's a gender-neutral Santa, as well as a variety of male, female and gender-neutral parents who can be seen holding a baby
Twitter users have been loving the new selection so far, with several commenting on the news.
One wrote: "I can foresee the youth of today misusing this perfectly respectable beaver emoji."
One person was very happy about the tamale emoji, tweeting: "A tamale emoji?! I'm here for that!"
Unicode Consortium - who is responsible for choosing the emojis for Apple and Android devices - are yet to reveal when we can expect the emojis, but hopefully it will be soon.
We personally can't wait to test these bad boys out!
