The emoji evolution just won鈥檛 stop. After announcing that new emoticons from聽a clown face to an avocado *could*聽be joining our smartphone鈥檚 keyboard next year with Unicode 9.0, the Unicode Consortium went and spilled some happy news today that the previously teased Unicode 8.0 emoji have been approved. Knock-off middle finger emoji, you鈥檙e聽so聽last month because the taco emoji has risen.

The Emojipedia聽revealed the tech breaking news that 37(!) new emoji characters have been approved for Unicode 8.0 and will be released tomorrow.聽Yes, tomorrow (it鈥檚 only a day away). The new keyboard characters that will be popping up on iOS, Android + Windows devices relatively soon include the taco (obviously) and the accompanying burrito, a hot dog, a turkey (ready for Thanksgiving social media overuse), a Unicorn head (why not), rolling eyes face and so many more.

Excuse our overreacting (we鈥檝e just been waiting so long!) + allow us to come back to Earth as we read that fine print. According to the Emojipedia 鈥渟upport for these new emoji characters rely on future updates from platform vendors.鈥 So basically it鈥檚 time to keep checking that software update tab in the settings of your phone endlessly for a taco 鈥 and popcorn, burrito, cheese wedge, etc 鈥 delivery for your emoji-loving heart. Make it STAT please, engineers <3
