250 Emoji to be introduced by the Unicode consortium

swiftkey beta emoji
Emoji is only relatively new to Android, first being introduced in a fairly rudimentary fashion in Android 4.1, before being more fully fleshed out and added to the Google Keyboard in later versions. But it looks like we’re going to be getting more, at least the Unicode Consortium, who regulates text across platform is adding them to the list of standard emoji.

There’s 250 new emoji being added, with highlights including: Man In Business Suit Levitating and Heavy North West Pointing Vine Leaf, but there’s a few new cool ones – For The Castle fans you can now say dad I dug a ‘Hole’ with the appropriate emoji. There does seem to be a bit of excitement around the place for the new ‘Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended’ but of course, we’re never that impolite ;).

Of course how quickly any new Emoji will be added to Android is not clear, but Google can move pretty quickly when they want. You can check out the full list of 250 emoji below.

“For The Castle fans you can now say dad I dug a ‘Hole’ with the appropriate emoji”

But where’s the Emoji character for “Dale”?
