Here’s a not-so-fun challenge for the day: Try texting your squad without using a single emoji. Practically impossible, right? We’ve come to rely on these adorable shortcuts to help us navigate awkward situations, make us laugh and truly capture what we’re feeling (the taco emoji, usually).

And now Unicode, the group that comes up with them, has announced a staggering 157 new emojis coming to our smartphones in the second half of 2018. And they are good.

What’s on the list? Partying face, a red-haired woman (and man), superheroes, a hippo (Fiona!), a llama, a cupcake, bagels and many more texting must-haves. Check out the video from Emojipedia below for a sneak peek at what the emojis might look like.
