Now there are emojis to suit the different colors of the world. Woot! With the new OS X 10.10.3 or iOS 8.3 upgrades coming soon, we can now choose a desired skin tone by simply clicking and holding any “human” emoji until you find the right shade that best describes you or whoever you’re talking to or talking about.
All "human" emojis will be updated with the skin tone modifier feature.
The new emojis were made possible thanks to a change in the Unicode standard called the “skin tone modifier”, which allows users to select the tone of compatible emoji.
And there’s more! Apart from the new skin tones, there are also new flags coming out, our very own Philippine flag included. As of now, there's no date of release yet, but we hear it could be some time mid-March.
Now we're just really waiting for the cheese emoji and all will be perfect. Please, emoji creators, bring out the cheese!
