Emoji 14.0 List

Exciting list of all new emoji expected to launch with Unicode 14.0 in 2022

Unicode is the mother of all emojis. It is the source and the first platform to launch emojis and a huge bunch of other symbols and elements used in everyday digital language. So, every now and then, the list updates. A line of new emojis is introduced and further established across all platforms. Thus, enhancing user experience each time.

The previous Unicode version, 13.1 is coming up with an update, the 14.0 version (aka Emoji 14.0) that has a couple of emoji additions. This blog lists out the drafts of the upcoming emojis. All 37 symbols are in queue for approval as they are just the outline and the probable outcome. None of them are officially launched as of yet. These emojis may be ratified by the end of 2021, giving a possibility of their appearance on all virtual platforms by 2022.
