Most of the new designs fit into the categories we're all familiar with, such as food, smileys, people, and animals, but there are quite a few that are direct reflections of actions and responses that have only developed in the last few years among mobile users.

With that said, let's move on to the fun stuff.

The smileys and people categories are see 22 new emoji added, including the face-palm, a face with a cowboy hat, a green nauseated face, a face blowing its nose, along with the previously mentioned selfie arm and shrug gesture, which are sure to be hits.

There's also plenty of new animals, such as a duck, shark, fox head, gorilla, deer, a very Batman symbol-like bat, and my personal favorite, an owl.

Lastly, in the objects and sports categories, users will soon find emoji like a spoon, shopping cart, drum, canoe, 1st/2nd/3rd place medals, a boxing glove, martial arts uniform, wrestlers, and fencing.

Oh, and there's one other new emoji in the people category I forgot to mention, however it may have some users wishing they could delete it from their keyboards: the clown.
