Say hello to 56 brand new emojis

Including a woman in hijab

Just when you thought this summer couldn't get better, with firework Oreos and prosecco popsicles being released, the tech world gives you a midseason game changer: NEW. EMOJIS.

That's right, USA TODAY reported yesterday that there will be as many as 56 new ways to show your true feelings over text. And the geniuses behind emojis really stepped up their game this round, from including more cultures (there's a woman in a hijab this round), to ones that the public has been dreaming of forever (THERE'S A MERMAID). These are set to go live later this year (potentially as early as July), with the release of Unicode version 10.0. Until then, take a look at some of the new ones below and let us know what your favorite is! Personally, we love the cursing one.
