Unicode 9.0 Candidate Emoji
Message ID:

The Unicode Consortium has accepted 38 emoji characters as candidates 
for Unicode 9.0, scheduled for release in mid-2016. At this point, these 
emoji are candidates—/not yet finalized/—so some may be removed from the 
candidate list, and others may be added. Names, images, and code points 
may also change, so these candidates are not yet ready for use in 
production systems.

These emoji have been accepted as candidates for Unicode 9.0 for a 
variety of reasons. They may be needed for compatibility with emoji 
characters in existing systems. For example, the FACE WITH COWBOY HAT 
was accepted for compatibility with the emoji used in Yahoo Messenger. 
Some are chosen based on expected high frequency of use or because they 
are highly popular requests from online communities. Others fill gaps in 
the existing set of Unicode emoji, as by completing a gender pair.

Many other prospective emoji characters are still being assessed and 
could be approved in the future. For more information about selection 
criteria, see Selection Factors 
<http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/#Selection_Factors> in /UTR #51, 
Unicode Emoji/.

The images shown below are draft black and white versions for the 
Unicode 9.0 charts. Once the emoji candidates have been finalized, 
vendors that support emoji will provide colorful and better-designed 
displays for each of these. For example, the emoji for /shrug/ might 
appear as shown on the right.

Some of these new emoji would take the new emoji modifiers as discussed 
in Diversity <http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51#Diversity>. Some emoji 
may also get annotations to help guide design and usage. For example, 
the cucumber emoji could also be used to represent a pickle.
