๐Ÿ’ฌ The Wrap

With the ninth annual World Emoji Day nearly upon us, we here at Emojipedia have debuted our sample designs for all of the final draft candidates for September's Emoji 15.0 list.

Included on the draft list is a plain Pink Heart which, if approved, will fulfill one of the emoji world's most long-standing requests. A Light Blue Heart and Shaking Face are also under consideration for approval later this year.

Are you amongst those who have been yearning for a plain Pink Heart? Or has a different draft emoji captured your imagination? As always, we're asking members of the public to let us know which of these emoji candidates they are most excited to see on their emoji keyboards in the next year or so.

Additionally, voting for the Most 2022 Emoji has been underway on Twitter over the last week, and the finals will be between ๐Ÿซ  Melting Face and the winner of the semi-final bout between fellow newcomer ๐Ÿฅน Face Holding Back Tears and the evergreen ๐Ÿคฆ Person Facepalming.

We also have no less than four brand new vendor sets available to view on Emojipedia since our last edition of the Emoji Wrap. The latest of these is the Microsoft Team's animated 3D Fluent emoji set, which made their Emojipedia debut mere minutes before we hit send on this newsletter.

The other three brand new emoji sets are the Korean fintech platform Toss' "TossFace" set, Sony Playstation's Emoji 13.1 support, and the Noto Emoji font - a minimalist companion to the Noto Color Emoji designs used by many Android devices and Google platforms.

These new vendor sets are discussed further below, alongside a new expert-filled "Emojis Across The World" video series set to debut on the Emojipedia YouTube channel, brand new language supports for our Emojipedia site, and new record-breaking emoji use on Twitter.

Thank you as always for being subscribed to Emojipedia's Emoji Wrap newsletter, and know that if I text you "๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ“†" it means Happy World Emoji Day for this Sunday!
