Alongside the release of Android 9 Pie, Mountain View search giant Google is launching 157 new emoji that introduce more inclusive gender options and some cool updates.

Most of the new emoji are part of the Emoji 11.0 update, but a few are just redesigns of existing characters like taking the egg out of the salad emoji and waking up the droopy turtle emoji.

There are also new people emoji with the addition of curly, red or grey hairstyles along with an option for bald people. All of these new hairstyles support varying skin tones.

Some emoji were updated previously. In April 2018, Google changed the gun into a water pistol and in June 2018, Google added more inclusive gender options for families.
