230 new emojis to be released this year

The Unicode Consortium has approved a total of 230 new emojis to be released with the 2019 Emoji 12.0 update.

The update covers a number of bases with the inclusion of a Yawning Face, Gender Inclusive couples in a range of skin tones and a kneeling person.

Disabilities will be represented too, as a person in a wheelchair is set to become available as well as a person with a probing cane. Guide dogs, wheelchairs and probing canes will feature.

The much sought after flamingo will become a reality with the update, as will the orangutan and the sloth.

For the foodies, you'll be able to demonstrate more ingredients as onion, garlic and waffles will all be immortalised.
