200 of the 217 new emojis approved today by Unicode are to permit skin tone options for ? Couple with Heart and ? Kiss.

When taking into account five skin tone options, each emoji requires 25 new sequences to allow a different skin tone for either person in the couple.

Four existing emojis multiplied by 25 new options, means 100 new emojis to support skin tones for ? Couple with Heart:

  • ๐Ÿ’‘ Couple with Heart
  • ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉ Couple with Heart: Woman, Woman
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘จ Couple with Heart: Man, Man
