Emoji is a text type pictograph, which is different from pictures and emoticons. It can be used wherever text is input, because it is a kind of text itself. The latest Emoji 13.1 release contains 1816 separate emojis (this statistic does not include emojis that are composed of multiple emojis and other skin tones).

Emoji can be displayed on different platforms, but the style will be different:

It first appeared in Japan, and they called it "绘文字 (Japanese: 絵文字/えもじ emoji)", which was created by Shigetaka Kurita and popular in global networks and mobile phone users. About 90% of online users worldwide use emojis frequently, and 6 billion emojis are transmitted every day. The Museum of Modern Art in New York lists emoji as a permanent collection, including 176 emojis that were born in 1999.

The original intention of creating Emoji was to make people's expressions more diverse and interesting. It has developed to be more like a new language and has its own unique charm. It can be seen everywhere in our daily online chat. By using it you can understand the emotions behind the lines of text, and even an emoji can express our current mood.

The Unicode Consortium will launch many new emojis every year. As long as you update your operating system in time, you can better display these new and interesting emojis.

In the future, the use of emoji will become more and more widespread, which is also a trend. If you want to learn more about the meaning and related knowledge of emoji, please pay attention to EMOJIALL!
