With World Emoji Day only a few days away, new iOS and Android emojis are expected to release soon. It is a part of the emoji day tradition.

Although there are only 31 new iOS and Android emojis being released this fall, we already have an idea of what they may look like.

This is thanks to Emojipedia, the world’s leading repository of everything emoji. Thanks to Emoji 15.0, a high-five, Wi-Fi, and a shaking head emoji, among others, will be coming to iOS and Android.

All these are contained in the draft list of expected emojis released by Emojipedia. But, what else do we know about the new iOS and Android emojis?

The new iOS and Android emojis include the following: a shaking face, light blue, gray, and pink hearts, and leftward and rightward pushing hands of different skin tones.

It also includes animals like a brown moose, a gray donkey, a light blue wing, a black bird, a white goose, and a jellyfish.

There’s also a flute, maracas, hair pick, folding hand fan, pea pods, ginger, hyacinth, khanda, and of course, the Wi-Fi emoji.

In 2021, Emojipedia proposed 112 unique emoji designs and 334 in 2020. Emoji 15.0 will provide emojis alongside Unicode 15.0.
