Someone warn Dax Shepard, because we have a feeling Kristen Bell is going to start crying happy tears over this news.
Turns out, her favorite animal is getting the Apple emoji treatment, along with 58 other new emojis coming soon to an iPhone near you. There are also a few variations on the already existing emojis on your phone, bringing the total up to 230…and we may have just reached emoji critical mass.
The Unicode Consortium, who approves the new emoji additions each year, is adding more inclusive emojis to its ranks, including a person in a wheelchair, prosthetic limbs, deaf and blind people emojis, and guide and service dogs.
There are also emojis for yawning, a flamingo, a waffle, a Hindu temple, a melting ice cube, a blood droplet, onion, garlic, a parachute, a planet, a yo-yo, a sari, a pair of underwear, white and brown hearts and a banjo.
While Unicode will make these emojis available in March 2019, Apple has the ability to add them into whatever software update they choose. Typically, they opt for a fall emoji release.
[Fingers crossed emoji] it’s sooner than that, though.
