Some notable candidates include hot and cold faces; superheroes and supervillains; a llama, a hippopotamus, a peacock, and a parrot; a mango; a compass; and an infinity symbol.

In addition to reversible emoji, the proposed guidelines also contain a slew of other proposed emoji that make great candidates. Though these still could make it into the final Emoji 11 update if voted in at the Unicode Technical Meeting in January. The pool of emojis has rapidly expanded from just a few smiley faces to a massive selection of pretty much anything you can think of. The list includes Grinning Face With Letters OK as Eyes, Frowning Pile of Poo and Frowning face with the question mark as eyes.

As Emojipedia points out, in past years, most of the final candidates have been included in the final release, so here's hoping that we will see these on our phones and laptops next year.

For instance, you could change the direction of that runner emoji to face left or right depending on your preference.

Just minutes into the game Georgi Dzhikiya pulled down Mohamed Salah as Coutinho drifted a ball into the area. Firmino latched onto the loose ball and curled home a shot with the outside of his right foot.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. The final list will be confirmed in the first quarter of next year, with a decision in January and an announcement in March. "The following ZWJ mechanism can be used to pick an explicit direction". Still, it's fun to peruse the list and imagine what the combination of new icon options and the added ability to flip your emojis will allow you to accomplish in texts to your family and friends.

According to Emojipedia, there are 2666 emojis in the "Unicode Standard" as of June 2017, meaning that there must be ENDLESS situations in which aesthetic confusion is created by emoji that face the wrong way.

The Unicode Consortium is the body which standardises and maintains how characters such as emoji appear across differing platforms, such as on Apple's iOS and Google's Android software. Next year, iOS devices could boast reversible emoji and many others.
