DroneUp, an ended-to-end aerial data solutions provider, submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium, the governing body that sets global coding standards, appealing to them to make a drone emoji available in the release of Emoji 14.0.
To rally support for the drone emoji, DroneUp has released a petition on change.org to help demonstrate public support.
Amy Wiegand, Marketing & Communications Director of DroneUp, states, “Emoji are sent over five billion* times a day on Facebook alone. By bringing a drone emoji to keyboards everywhere, it will represent a subset of aerial vehicles and technology. This supports the visibility of the drone industry on a global scale in a fun manner. These efforts are not meant to be serious, but they are impactful to creating synergy for use in everyday modern communication.”
DroneUp is asking drone professionals and enthusiasts to join in the fun by signing and sharing the petition using the #DroneEmoji hashtag.
