Good morning, 

Get ready to add some extra flair to your text messages: 230 new emojis are hitting smartphones in 2019.

Several of the new emojis emphasize inclusivity with a focus on disabilities. Some of the notable additions include prosthetic limbs, hearing aids and people in wheelchairs. Other symbols that made the cut include a yawning face, a sloth and a waffle.

The new emojis will be released sometime in March, according to Unicode.
