AN­DROID and iOS will be push­ing out 19 new emo­jis in the com­ing weeks, and Aussies are so here for it.

In­geous Stu­dios, which has been in­volved with the app devel­op­ment, lifted the lid on their Indi­ge­mo­jis pro­ject.

“We are hop­ing to re­lease the An­droid app in the next two weeks and then the iOS. Stage two is key­board re­lease for both plat­forms,” the stu­dio told its fol­low­ers.

Indi­ge­mo­jis are set to in­clude a boomerang, a love heart and crown in the colours of the Abo­rig­i­nal flag. The icons, made by young peo­ple of Ar­rernte coun­try in Mparn­twe/Alice Springs, also in­clude a kan­ga­roo tail and a dingo.

Ac­cord­ing to the Indi­ge­moji web­site, the emo­jis are de­signed to “in­spire young peo­ple to de­colonise their digital spa­ces”.

So­cial me­dia users have been largely sup­port­ive of the move, with some call­ing for the Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der and Aus­tralian South Sea Is­lan­der flags to be added as well.

“Awe­some! Long over­due!” com­mented one Face­book user.

An­other added, “Love the roo tail and the enamel cup with the teabag hangin’ out. Clas­sic!”
