Unicode 9.0 has been released just yesterday with 72 new emojis. With Unicode 9.0, users are getting a bunch of new emojis, including Facepalm, Shrug, and Selfie emojis. Unicode 9.0 also introduces several new emojis for foods and a few for animals. The update also brings new emojis for drinks and sports. You can view all of the 72 new emojis in the video below:

All of the 72 emojis from Unicode 9.0 are already available in Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile. If you happen to use the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview builds, you will be able to use the new emojis on your Windows 10 device which is pretty nice. In the above picture, you can see just a few of the new Unicode 9.0 emojis on Windows 10. If you are not a Windows Insider, you will be able to use the new emojis with the Anniversary Update for Windows 10, which is expected to get released sometime in July.
