The number of 230 new emoticons looks a bit high, is not it? In addition to a large number of new ones, there will be several upgraded, slightly modified emoticons that are already known, but this year they will appear in different colors, shapes or with small visual "adjustments".
Unicode Consortium has created a list of new emoticons this year.
In 2019, 230 new emoticons will be included in the communication system, of which 175 will represent people and bodies. From now on, the skin tone and the gender of the couples can be combined arbitrarily with over 70 different combinations.
Unicode Consortium is a non-profit organization that is responsible for standardizing all signs that are available online so that they will have the same meaning all over the world.
The decision-making board consists of representatives of the major technology companies around the world. According to the decision-making principle, the new orangutan, melting ice cube or the bionic hand is not a decision that represents Apple or Google, but it's a joint decision on the board. Each company presents the same emotions, with minor concessions in the visual display.
Among the most important changes, this year are new emoticons that show people with disabilities. The presentation of the new emoticons showed a visually impaired person with a stick in his hand, a hearing impaired person and a hearing aid, as well as several others.
