    While the new emojis of Unicode 10 have yet to launch, Unicode President Mark Davis this week revealed a collection of new emojis have been added as "draft candidates" for potential release in Unicode 11 in 2018 (via Emojipedia). The news came out of the quarterly Unicode Technical Committee meeting, and up next the Unicode Consortium will decide on the list of final candidates at its Q4 2017 meeting in October, followed by naming the new characters at a meeting in Q1 2018.

    The 67 new characters proposed for inclusion in Unicode 11 include smiling face with three hearts, smiling face with party hat, blue face with icicles, grinning face with OK as eyes, and an inversion of the well-known poo emoji called "frowning pile of poo."

    There's also kangaroo, cupcake, llama, bagel, broom, skateboard, softball, smiling face with cape, and serious face with eye mask and cape. Since Unicode 11 is still so far from release, the list of its included characters and their designs are subject to change.

    Closer to release is Unicode 10, which Apple highlighted last month during World Emoji Day by looking at a few of the emojis coming to iOS, macOS, and watchOS later in 2017. New emojis include Woman with Headscarf, Bearded Person, Breastfeeding, Sandwich, Coconut, T-Rex, Zebra, Zombie, Elf, Star-Struck, Exploding Head, and more.

    Apple didn't specify a date for the launch of the Unicode 10 characters, but they should appear around the public debut of iOS 11 or soon after. It traditionally takes Apple a few months to include support for new emoji. Last year, the Unicode Consortium released Unicode 9 in June 2016, and then Apple debuted those characters in iOS 10.2 in October 2016.

    Is it just me, or does this make you lose the will to live?

    Hey if you don't like them, don't use them.

    I never was a big fan of them, and really never used them but now me and my secretary, as a joke, try to communicate in nothing but emojis when we have to text each other.

    This is starting to get out of hand and getting stupid. There's just too many now and making me lose interest in them.

    At some point we're gonna have to stop making new Emojis, or at least clear out the least used ones. We'll end up with a list packed with Emojis that nobody ever uses or have has used.

    "Can't wait to see Sir Patrick Stewart reprise his role in Emoji Movie 2—this time as the frowning poop!" said no one ever.

    Not sure the Unicode consortium can help you with that.

    Finally, a poop emoji that accurately reflects a morning with a hangover.

    You've been asking the Unicode Consortium for Dark Mode for a decade?
