Time to whip out the boba tea, pot plant, and the happy/sad emojis!

Because these are all the emojis we didn't know we needed!

Emoji 13.0 comprises 117 new emojis, which will make their way to our phones in the second half of the year.

The update includes 62 brand new icons, such as the long-overdue bubble tea emoji, along with a transgender flagpolar bearblack catpiñata, anatomically-accurate heart and lungs, and a smiling face with a tear.

This by far our favourite, followed by the bubble tea!

They've also added 55 gender and skin-tone variants, including gender-neutral “Mx” emojis. One noteworthy design that will be available in various skin tones is pinched fingers, also known as “Italian hand.”
