The new characters today join 2,666 other emoji already offered by the Consortium, though it may take some time before smartphone firms add them to their software.

As well as redheads, the upgrade sports a range of new hairstyles, including curly-haired, white-haired and bald people.

Also included are hot and cold faces, as well as party, woozy and pleading faces.

The set features male and female superheros and supervillains, as well as emoji for activities such as softball, frisbee, sewing, chess and lacrosse.

Animals lovers will enjoy the new llama, raccoon, lobster, hippopotamus, parrot and kangaroo emoji.

The update also includes new skin tone options for the leg and foot emoji, as well as science-focussed characters like a test-tube, lab coat and petri dish.

Although there are only 66 new emoji, some of them have more than one skin tone option, leading to a total of 157 new symbols.

Based on past rollouts, Facebook and Twitter will likely take up the new emoji first, with the full 11.0 set expected to hit the platforms between now and August, according to Emojipedia.

The site says Google and Apple should release the symbols to Android and iPhone users between September and December.

The additions were announced in February but are available to software developers as of today.

The addition of a ginger character to the emoji sphere sparked delight among the online redhead community.
