New for 2017, this year’s fresh crop of icons will broaden its people offerings to consist of a woman using a headscarf, a guy with a beard and 3 gender-inclusive emojis.

Health is likewise a theme in this year’s additions, with emoji dedicated to yoga, rock-climbing and even saunas. Come fall, you’ll have an emoji to accompany all those steam-room selfies you’ve been hoarding.

New foods are on 2017’s emoji menu, consisting of pie, dumplings, broccoli and– remedying a significant oversight– the sandwich.< img data-credit-name ="2017 Emojipedia"data-credit-provider= "custom-made type"src=http://i.amz.mshcdn.com/9O3WKdZ2_63pCr4XDU2sE_YJf_c=/fit-in/1200x9600/https%3A%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fuploads%2Fcard%2Fimage%2F423527%2Ff3cbe9bb-bbc8-4e14-a82f-233d19387926.jpg alt data-fragment=m!fc68 data-image=http://i.amz.mshcdn.com/k3u2DyjQYjYs4WmcFMsHBiI7QDM=/https%3A%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fuploads%2Fcard%2Fimage%2F423527%2Ff3cbe9bb-bbc8-4e14-a82f-233d19387926.jpg data-micro=1 > And unusually enough, 2017 will give us a whole cast of fantastical emoji, consisting of zombies, fairies, vampires and fairies. Emojipedia’s mock-ups aren’t final, and there’s an opportunity the emoji that hit smart devices later this year could look different from what’s seen here. We’re just holding out hope that the curling stone emoji stays as is. Topics:, Photography, Tech, Watercooler Image: mashable composite, emojipedia Mashable is a
