Recently, Unicode Consortium has teased us with some emojis for 2019. Now we finally know how they would like when they come to our phone.

Both Google and Apple celebrated Emoji Day (17th July) by showing off their version of twelve emoji characters. These characters will hit Android and iOS platforms later on this year. You can check out some of the emojis of Apple and Google in the below pictures. The design of these emojis focuses on inclusivity and also whimsy.

The new emojis include characters in wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and even guide dogs.

You could find more inclusive emojis like characters in wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and guide dogs. Besides, the famous emote "holding hands" now comes with many combinations of gender and skin colors. You might also like Indian theme emotes such as a sari, a Diya lamp, or a Hindu temple. On the funnier side, you need to check out cute animals like flamingos, otters, and sloths. There are also hilarious yo-yos and underpants.

When will they arrive on Google and Apple's devices?

Apple only discloses that these new emojis are arriving together with an iOS devices' software update this fall, that basically means the releases of macOS, iPadOS, Catalina, watchOS 6, and iOS 13. Meanwhile, Google must try with the beta of Android Q or keep waiting for the finished release of Q for these new emoji to reach its devices in the future.

During that, the crew of Unicode is also working on their part. They are discussing the possibility of a mechanism that allows you to change the non-human emoji icon's color. Thus you could make a white cat, or a black dog instead of yellow. This system could arrive with the Unicode 13.0, but that is not confirmed yet.
