World Emoji Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated on July 17.

Apple says that all-in-all 59 exciting new emoji are coming this fall with free software updates for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. New emoji are added to the lineup every year via the Unicode Consortium, which introduced the new emoji for 2019 back in early February.

Google said, "An emoji without any specific gender assigned to it in the Unicode documentation will come with a "gender-ambiguous design". The lineup includes more inclusive emoji, new foods, additional activities, and more.

The preview, which also includes new emoji depicting guide dogs as well as a sloth, flamingo, butter and falafel, has been published to coincide with World Emoji Day on Wednesday. Of course, sending these new emojis will be limited to Android Q devices.

If you've ever wished for a sloth, waffle or falafel emoji, the wait is nearly over.

The emoji, destined to arrive as part of an update to iOS, iPadOS, macOS and watchOS later this year, brings a large update to the Holding Hands emoji typically used to represent couples and relationships.

Apple Inc.is releasing new variants of its holding hands emoji that allow people to pick any combination of skin tone and gender, 75 possible combinations in all.
