Hooray! We’re getting diverse emoji! The Unicode Consortium, the entity that standardizes characters for letters, numbers, and symbols, has heard the demand for emojis with diverse skin tones and is adding a range of five skin tone options to emoji characters based on a dermatological measure called the Fitzpatrick scale.
