Just one day after Apple showed off its new line of emojis, Google has announced the launch of 65 new emojis with its AndroidQ in September.

In February, the Unicode Consortium unveiled the new icons would be allowing Apple and Google to develop individual looks with unique aesthetics.

Both lines focus on diversity and inclusivity this year with icons portraying disabled people and couples of different genders and races.

Other additions also include sloths, otters and garlic as well as the usual categories of food, animals, activities and smiley faces.

But while Apple announced it would release its 59 emojis to its devices towards the end of the year, likely along with iOS 13 in September, Google will include the emojis in Android Q when that rolls out in August.

The search giant has launched 53 gender fluid emojis as part of its push to be 'more inclusive,' according to Fast Company.

In a major update to the 'Holding Hands emoji' typically used to represent couples and relationships, users will now be able to select any combination of skin tone.

This is in addition to gender, to personalise the people holding hands, opening up more than 75 possible combinations.

A new guide dog, an ear with a hearing aid, wheelchairs, a prosthetic arm and a prosthetic leg will be available in the emoji keyboard.

A sloth for when you’re having a slow morning and an otter are new additions to the animal category.
