A new library of emojis has been revealed that seem to reflect the chaos that happened in 2020, such as a mending heart and face with spiral eyes.

The Unicode Consortium, the organization responsible for creating emojis, announced 217 new avatars for Emoji 13.1, which also adds a heart on fire, a face exhaling and a face in the clouds. 

According to the emoji reference website Emojipedia, the spiral eyes emoji replaces an existing one which displayed spiral eyes on some platforms, but X eyes on others. 

Most of the updates are to skin tones, as users will have 210 new options that appear in multi-person emojis - mostly couples kissing and sharing hearts. 

There will also be gender-inclusive bearded emojis, allowing users to choose among a bearded man, a bearded woman or a gender-neutral individual with a beard.

The 'Face Exhaling' emoji represents relief, exhaustion, or a sigh of disappointment, according to Emojipedia, though it may also be used to symbolize smoking. 

The new 'Mending Heart' emoji is 'the opposite of a broken heart,' Emojipedia says, and indicates healing 'or to express sympathy for someone going through a difficult time.'  

Emoji 13.1 will include a bearded lady avatar, with an option for a gender-neutral individual with a beard. Currently only a male-presenting face with a beard is available
