Emoji Candidates

At the 2016Q4 Unicode Technical Committee meeting (UTC #149), 56 new emoji characters were provisionally approved for Unicode 10.0, for release in June, 2017. These are listed in the table below.

NOTE: While the 56 emoji will be in the Unicode 10.0 release, their code points, character names, representative chart glyphs, emoji properties, and annotations are not yet final. The colored glyphs are merely illustrative samples, and vary considerably from what vendors actually deploy. These sample glyphs may change at any time, and others may be added.
Do not deploy any of these characters until the Unicode 10.0 release is available.

These characters were based on proposals received by the Unicode Consortium, reviewed by the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee, and selected on the basis of the Emoji Selection Factors in Submitting Emoji Character Proposals. That page also describes the Process and Timeline for proposals.

Thanks to EmojiXpress, Emojipedia, Emojination, and Adobe for the color sample glyphs. The representative chart glyphs (black and white) are not yet available for most of these emoji.

For information about the images used in these charts, see Emoji Images and Rights. For details about the format and fields, see Emoji Chart Index. Support of emoji is not required for conformance to the Unicode Standard — for more information about emoji, see UTR #51 Unicode Emoji. To propose a new emoji, see Submitting Emoji Character Proposals.
