While it’s always a challenge to pick new emoji from among the thousands of submissions, the latest batch of new emoticons as shown off by Emojipedia includes some real bangers like the biting lip emoji, the new person with crown emoji, and my personal favorite—the melting face emoji—which probably accurately describes how a lot of Americans are feeling after surviving the hottest ever summer on record this year.

Elsewhere, the Unicode Consortium has also added some thoughtful LGBT-friendly icons including the new pregnant man and pregnant person emoji, while the new emoji for coral serves as a salient reminder about the plight facing our world’s aquatic habitats. Meanwhile, for us techies, there’s a handy new low battery emoji and an x-ray emoji that are sure to be dropped in texts and messages.
