Google is adding 65 new emoji to its upcoming Android Q keyboard, the company revealed on Wednesday.
Acknowledging World Emoji Day, Google teased that Android Q will feature garlic, a kneeling person, 71 couple combinations, and an otter.
The new emoji will also feature a sloth “for when you’re having a slow morning and running late but looking cute”.
Google is adding “gender inclusive designs” too, which aim to break certain stereotypes by being ambiguous in their default state.
“You can still choose between male and female presentations if want to opt into a gender on your keyboard,” the company explained.
Android Q will launch later this year, but is currently available in beta along with the new emojis.
For those using Apple products, you can look forward to more than 50 new emoji coming to the Watch, iOS and MacOS devices.
