Representations of what to expect from 2019's new emoji created by Emojipedia

Emojipedia has just announced that 230 new emojis have been approved by the Unicode Consortium and are coming to your smartphones in 2019. The list of new emojis is more inclusive of individuals with disabilities, which is something Apple actually pushed for early a year ago. One other significant addition is newfound flexibility for the emoji of two people holding hands, which can now utilize varying skin tone and gender combinations. With that said, some of the new emojis include people in wheel chairs, bionic arms, seeing eye dogs, and more. You won't have to worry about substituting an emoji the next time you're at a planetarium, a zoo, or a restaurant.

Some of the new emojis include people in manual and motorized wheelchairs, people with seeing and hearing impairments, and more. New animals include a sloth, a flamingo and an orangutan, while foodies will like presence of a waffle, a juice box and an onion.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies began a new round of supply cuts in January. Market participants are also watching for developments surrounding the U.S.

Users can expect to receive the new emojis in software updates beginning in April through to the end of 2019.

Now, it is up to the phone manufacturers and developers of messaging apps to produce their own versions of the new 59 Emoji, which will be officially released a month from today on March 5th.
