250 New Emojis Are Coming This July

By Alex Morrison

 

Sometimes after I've sent a text, I look back at it and wonder to myself, "what the hell did I just write?" The text is covered in emojis of pizza slices, dogs, palms together in prayer and beer mugs, allowing only those under the age of 30 to decrypt my message.  

This is how younger generations now text. And luckily, we're getting a few more goodies to fill our message bubbles with.

It was announced on Monday that 250 new emojis will be hitting Android and iOS in July. The new emoji characters are primarily derived from Wingdings and Webdings fonts, as seen below:
