Ever wonder if there was an emoji that resembled you skin tone more than the standard look?
The company that regulated the character, Unicode Consortium’s website wrote, “People all over the world want to have emoji that reflect more human diversity, especially for skin tone. The Unicode emoji characters for people and body parts are meant to be generic, yet following the precedents set by the original Japanese carrier images, they are often shown with a light skin tone instead of a more generic (inhuman) appearance, such as a yellow/orange color or a silhouette.”

It’s said that Unicode Version 8.0 might be adding five new characters, some of which will be a different skin tone than the usual.
