Unicode has finally approved a new batch of emojis for 2017.
Noteworthy additions include a bearded person, a woman with headscarf, and a number of gender neutral emoji options. According to the Los Angeles Times, the bearded man emoji and woman in a hijab emoji were some of the most highly requested emojis.
The update will be released sometime in June 2017 – the exact dates depend on the type of phone model used. But according to Forbes, Google and Apple will likely implement the new emojis between October and December 2017.
