Looks like Android users may be getting in on the new emoji action

by John_A

Noticed any weird squares or random characters from your friends with Apple devices lately? It could be because of a recent update for iOS that has introduced 184 brand new emoji characters.

For those of us with Android phones and tablets, we may not have to wait too long to start using the taco emoji. Android executive Hiroshi Lockheimer has posted on Twitter, announcing that his team is working on some new emoji due to popular demand.

While Lockheimer did not detail what exactly the new emoji are or when it will be available on Android, the most likely candidates for new emoji are the new characters introduced in Unicode 7.0 and 8.0, which range from hot dogs and popcorn food items, to middle-finger and Vulcan hand gestures.

Let’s hope we all reach emoji parity sooner than later, I know I will love to use the unicorn and popcorn emoji. 👍😄🌽
