Since a picture is worth a thousand words, it's only natural that companies and designers continue to create more emoticons to flesh out the current collection on smartphones; yet Microsoft's Window 10 is the first to introduce a middle finger emoji. One of the most expressive gestures around the world, it will help people get their frustrated, angry and even fun feelings across instantly.

Available in six diverse skin tone options, the middle finger emoji hopes to resonate with many different demographics. In addition to the middle finger emoji, Microsoft has also tweaked its relieved face, confounded face, face with a look of triumph, tired face and more in an effort to provide more accurate representations.
