The red heart emoji was used twice as much on Facebook as past year and over 900-million emojis are sent every day without text on Facebook Messenger.

Apple will also continue to build on its collection of animals and food items, with a kangaroo, peacock, parrot and lobster hitting this fall, alongside mango, lettuce, cupcake, and moon cake.

For accessibility advocates, today's news will be tinged with disappointment as the range of disability-focussed emojis proposed in March 2018 were not included in the promo.
