This selection includes several fun additions, including those reflective of internet slang – for example, Rolling on the Floor Laughing – which has its roots in the acronym ROFL – is one of the upcoming emoji and shows a tilted smiley face with a wide mouth and closed eyes.

Oh and hey, the Summer Olympics are coming!

The new gold, silver and bronze medals will be handy for that, too.

This is only a partial list with some of the highlights, but you can browse the full list of new emoji here on the Unicode.org website.

Google employees, meanwhile, have submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium asking them to add 13 new emoji that highlight the diversity of women s careers, featuring women working as doctors, scientists, in the technology industry and more.
