New 2020 Emoji Include Black Cat, Italian Pinched Fingers, Magic Wand, And More

It’s 2020, and we all have a lot to express and very little time to do it. Emoji understands that, which is why they’re giving us even more options for expressing ourselves through modern hieroglyphs. That’s right. The 2020 Emojis have arrived.

Recently, Emoji released a bunch of new symbols that were meant to make their options more inclusive, including gender-neutral faces (yes, including the elves, witches, and warlocks) and robotic arms, as might be used by someone with an amputation. They’re trying to cover all their bases. There are 62 new emoji and 55 new gender and skin tone variants of emoji.

You’d think the Emoji company would start to run out of new ideas, but there’s just more and more stuff out there to turn into an adorable little illustration. They’ve just announced that there are now 117 new Emojis coming out, and you’ll be thrilled by the opportunity to use them all.


On their blog, they introduce new emoji “People Hugging” which they write “shows a greater sense of empathy than the previous excited-looking 🤗 Hugging Face.”


 

Honestly, that’s true. Very awkward to get the smiling, blushing, hugging face after telling someone your dog just died, or something.

They’ve also added pinched fingers, or the “Italian Hand Gesture.” Very useful when asking a friend if they want to watch the Godfather or have lasagna for dinner or if they’d like their nipples tweaked:

There are now a number of anatomically correct organs, for the serial killers and doctors out there who need to notify their spouses that they’ll be working late:

And finally, the cat-lover community has been heard and we can get away from that old orange and white tabby. We’ve got a black cat, folks:

You can watch the full rundown in this short video Emoji helpfully made:

Then start texting. We have a lot of plans to make, and only a gender-neutral person wearing a Santa hat can help!
