The organization behind everyone’s favorite emojis have recently approved a new line of cute ideograms.

According to online site Mashable, that includes a “face with spiral eyes,” which people say sums up the disastrous 2020.

The Unicode Consortium, a non-profit group that oversees emoji standards, is responsible for the new releases.

Other major additions include a heart with a bandage wrapped around it and a heart on fire. The new emojis could express either heartburn or heartbreak.

Another addition is an attempt at creating a gender-neutral person with a beard. Currently, a male-only option is in use.

The bulk of the update, however, is dedicated to skin tones for the “couple with heart” and the “kiss” emojis.

Current options offer only the default “yellow” skin tone for both, but the update will allow other skin tones to be specified.

Some more fun additions include a face or head in the cloud and a face blowing out a breath or cloud of smoke.

The updates could hit your phone anywhere from January to October 2021, with the more complete “Emoji 14.0” package set to drop in 2022.
