There Won’t Be Any New Emoji Next Year Due To Coronavirus

As for Version 14.0, which ordinarily would be slated to be released early next year and on our phones by fall 2021, the Unicode Consortium said it will still be accepting emoji proposals between June 15 and September 1, 2020. The difference is that they’ll be announced in September of 2021 and won’t roll out until 2022. For now, at least we’re getting a new set of emojis as promised in the fall, including Pinched Fingers (like a chef’s kiss), Bubble Tea, People Hugging, Disguised Face, and Ninja.
