The new list of emojis take cue from those present on Apple devices, according to a blog post by Emojipedia. With these new emojis, the total tally of approved emojis stands at 2,823, with none of the older-standing emojis being removed. Some of the new emojis could also find their way onto messaging platforms, like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger later this year. Among these, the Infinity emoji is already available on some Samsung devices, while the Pirate flag emoji is also a part of Twitter-developed emojis.
