Emoji Versions, v12.0
This chart shows when each emoji was first defined. It includes both emoji characters and sequences. The detailed Counts are as described in §3 Which Characters are Emoji. Some emoji before 2015 (and all emoji before 2010) are proleptic (they were only later considered emoji). For a key to the counts of emoji, see Emoji Counts Key
While these charts use a particular version of the Unicode Emoji data files, the images and format may be updated at any time. For any production usage, consult those data files.
