More Inclusivity Coming to Emoji Keyboard Soon!


You may very well find a more thorough representation of yourself on the emoji keyboard very soon!

That’s right, according to Mashable and a proposal submitted to the Unicode Technical Committee, there is a red head, white hair color, curly head and bald head emoji up for candidates to join the rest of the starring keyboard cast.

If these emoji’s are approved, they will be added mid-2018!

In the past few years we have seen the Unicode Technical Committee work on adding various different emoji to the keyboard to represent inclusivity for all. Although we are still missing a variety of preferred hair, and animal options, it is great to know that they are soon on the way.

Each new emoji introduced in 2018 with support skin tone as well.
