Where would the world be without emoji? Sure, people would be able to communicate a bit less awkwardly in person. And yes, perhaps at least one person under the age of 25 would probably know the difference between your and you’re. But those are small prices to pay for the ability to text someone with a series of cute little graphics instead of having to string sentences together.

Well, emoji fans, you’re in for a treat: There are 38 new emoji coming soon to an iPhone or Android phone near you, and we’ve got the full list right here.
