Unicode 14.0 emoji
The Unicode Consortium

It’s officially the time of the year when new emoji are released and we get to sift through them to find the true standouts. Unicode 14 has arrived, and with it, a slew of new emoji are ready for your emoting pleasure.

Unicode 14.0 and the New Emoji

In total, there are 37 new emoji ready for primetime, and there are even more if you count the different skin tones offered by several of them. It’s hard to choose a standout, as there are some really stellar options, but we’re quite fond of the troll and low battery emoji, as they can be used in so many different ways.

Just imagine messing with a friend, getting them all riled up, and then sending them the troll emoji to let them know you’re just messing with them. Will it make them angrier or settle them down? The fun is in finding out.

Of course, the low battery can be used to signify that your phone is literally on the verge of death, but it could also be used to indicate that you’re sleepy. There are so many possibilities.

And then there’s the lip bite emoji. I don’t need to tell you how you can pair that with eggplants and peaches (though I suppose I just did).

The fact is, emoji are just fun. Seeing all of the new ones injects some new life into them. So let’s all have a party under the new disco ball emoji while our faces melt to the beat!
