Much of the focus is centered on representation. Among the range of emoji updates, you’ll find an increased variety in skin tone, a gender-inclusive couple, an interracial couple, and various disabilities.
The update includes 59 distinct new additions (the rest is built from the previously mentioned skin tone and gender updates), including a sloth, guide dog, and flamingo, a Hindu temple, waffles, and a white heart. There’s also an orange safety jacket for those looking to digitally flex the workwear trend.
Various women, meanwhile have been celebrating the pinching emoji, for self-explanatory reasons.
Check out all the new arrivals below.
Developers will start adding the new emoji on operating systems, apps, and web platforms throughout 2019.
