Unicode 10 arrives with 56 brand new emoji

On Wednesday, the Unicode Consortium released Unicode 10, its latest batch of emoji, which include everything — and we mean everything — from a nude “person in a steamy room” to a zombie.

The main purpose of this latest update, however, is to make the range of emoji more diverse as it features a breastfeeding woman, a woman wearing a hijab and a heavily-bearded man.

The new emoji aren’t available just yet

Don’t expect to find the new offerings on your smartphone right now, though. It takes time for software developers, like Apple and Google, to bake them into their operating systems.
