38 Of The Most-Requested Emojis (Including Bacon) Might Be Coming Soon

You asked, the emoji gods delivered!

There are more new emojis coming. You asked, and Unicode answered. Seriously, though, the folks at Unicode took into account which emojis were most requested on Emojipedia, searched on Google, requested from Apple and written about online. They're listening!

Unicode, the group that makes the code behind all emojis, just released 38 emojis that it's planning to create for 2016, Yahoo reports. After Unicode creates the code, it's up to Apple, Android and others to illustrate them for your phones, so there's no guarantee that you'll get the following emojis on your device, but here's hoping!

These are a bunch of the new images Unicode has provided:

  • Black Heart
  • Croissant
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Bacon
  • Potato
  • Carrot
  • Fox face
  • Eagle
  • Duck
  • Bat
  • Shark

You should take a moment to read through Unicode's descriptions of each emoji, since it explains why each was chosen and lists a few of its possible uses. The eagle was chosen, for example, because it's a common animal, it's often requested, people search for it and it's the national bird of 15 countries.

Now just cross your fingers that we finally get that crossed fingers emoji.
