But the list does include numerous symbols to expand on people who are represented by them, including many images related to disabilities. More inclusive options such as non-gender conforming people and emojis with disabilities will also be featured.

The Unicode Consortium, which curates the emojis, announced the new offerings this week.

Apart from the emojis that we have already mentioned, you can also expect to see butter, ice cube, manual wheelchair, falafel, waffle, garlic, sloth, brown heart, and yawning face emojis.
