Along with the aforementioned, circle and square icons have been made available a in a slew of new colorways along with a highly-requested white heart icon. Over on the people side, more female representation has been added along with a gender inclusive couple and holding hand icons in six new different skin tones.

This marks the sixth major emoji update since 2014. Unicode will start to roll out the new emoji starting in March, however it will take some time for operating systems to roll out support for the new characters. Head over to Emojipedia for more details.
