Full Emojis List and Their Meaning in 2020

- Advertisement - data-full-width-responsive="false">

In 2020, it has become increasingly difficult for people to express themselves online without using an emoji. Well, using an emoji is a much faster and easier way to convey your feelings when you’re lost for words, and these days our vocabulary is almost inadequate enough to express how we feel about things and people.

However, when I read posts or chats involving the use of emojis these days, I begin to realize how much people use them wrongly. If we can’t find the right words, at least we can make an effort to use the right smileys that will have our messages interpreted as intended.

In this article, we have put together all the emojis that exist and those that will be introduced in 2020.

Categorization of Emojis

Emojis presently fall into seven categories, and here they are:

  • Face Emoji Meanings
  • Hand Gestures and Leg Emoji Meanings
  • Phases of Moon
  • The Astrological Sign Emojis
  • Meanings of Religious Symbols
  • Animal Emojis
  • Flags of Countries, Territories, Islands, and More

Before we explore the emojis you already know, let’s take a quick look at those coming in 2020.

Upcoming Emojis to be Released in 2020

The new set of emojis shortlisted to be released in 2020 under Emoji version 13.0 update are more than 50.

Transgender Symbol

This is a new symbol that is mainly used to represent people in the transgender community.

Seal ?

The seal has luckily been approved as a new emoji in 2020. These creatures are semi-aquatic marine mammals. The emoji looks like a baby seal.

Pinched Fingers ?

This is an Italian hand-gesture that has various meanings in various cultures, and it really became popular in 2017 as an Italian meme for hand-gesture. In real-life, this hand gesture is used by Italians when they are upset and asking a question.
