If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, stay tuned for the public iOS update.

WhatsApp, which uses Apple emojis on all platforms, will likely add the new and redesigned characters as well.

Both Google and Apple have worked to expand the diversity of their emoji characters by including more skin tones and gender options.

Android 7.1 Nougat, available on Nexus, Pixel, and LG V20 devices, also included support for the same emoji additions, including farmer and policewoman. The new foods (including croissant, bacon, and baguette) are available in the latest version of Android as well.
