The update will also feature more non-gender conforming people and emojis with various disabilities.

WASHINGTON — Soon, your devices will have about 230 new emoji to choose from, including a sloth, white heart and more inclusive representations of people.

There will also be a yawning face, waffles, a flamingo and an otter, according to Emojipedia.

The Unicode Consortium, which is the non-profit group that makes sure emoji and other text are standard across different platforms and devices, announced the finalized list on Feb. 5, though by Wednesday afternoon the announcement on their website appeared to be down.
