There’s finally going to be a ginger emoji

The hotly-anticipated ginger emojis have finally arrived and they are bound to be gracing group chat today.

More than 100 new emojis have arrived today included a series of red-headed figures with different skin tones.

The move is justice for gingers everywhere who have long felt left out and been forced to use emojis with blonde hair on WhatsApp.

The move was confirmed by the Unicode Consortium in February after years of calls from emoji lovers to branch out from existing blonde, brunette and black hair tones.

And, as you might expect, the decision has gone down a storm on social media.

The change, which is part of Unicode’s Emoji 11.0 update, will also see cakes, superheroes, bagels, toilet paper, kangaroos and llamas all added to a list of 2,823 emoji available in total.

But not all the symbols will be available at once, as some platforms like Apple’s iOS and Google ’s Android will have to adopt the collection first before eager redheads can get their hands on them.

Based on previous emoji releases it is thought the rollout could take place between September and November but will be available immediately online.
