When will you start to see the new Emoji 12.0 on your phone?

Numerous new icons are tied together by the theme of inclusivity, introducing emojis for deaf people, blind people, people in wheelchairs, and those with prosthetic limbs. A March 5th update to Unicode will make the emojis usable online, but each company will choose when to introduce their own versions of the new emojis. Unicode Consortium, the organization that approves and standardizes emojis, approved 230 new emojis that will come to platforms including iOS and Android this year.

All 59 new emojis for 2019.

Unicode is also streamlining some of its symbols, so now the heart, circle, and square emoji will all be available in a full rainbow of colors. This includes a deaf person in different skin tones, prosthetic mechanical limbs, a service dog and more. Among them include the sari, a Hindu Temple, falafel, maté, and the Diya Lamp emoji. The new icon represents a wider spectrum of people to promote more inclusivity including people with various disabilities (proposed by Apple last year), a gender inclusive couple, as well emojis which permit a mix of skin tones for people holding hands.
