Unicode 9 Emoji

That’s right, you read correctly Bacon. Streaky, tasty digital bacon.

In case that’s not enough for you the Unicode consortium also announced another 71 non-bacon emoji. So what other emoji are joining their Japanese inspired pictograms? Take a look.

So that’s the list of what’s in, but not everything made it into Unicode 9. If you look at the header image you see the two right-hand images, the rifles and the “modern pentathlon”. Both of these didn’t make the final cut. We can’t say we’re overly concerned, but the internet being the internet if you want to be outraged, you’ll find others who are.

Are you looking for the new Bacon emoji, I mean emoji? Let us know below.

This is just getting silly. There are already wayyyyy too many to meaningfully find one for the right context.


I don’t think you head me, Bacon.

but yes, i often have to search for the emoji i want, I’m guessing keyboards will get smarter about finding them for you.


I agree, I rarely use them as:
1. use words, that’s why we have them!

2. I get sick of wadding through pages and pages of emoji to find the one I want.

If there was a “emoji search” on the keyboard itself, I may use it more!
