CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Your text messages may soon be more interesting, especially if you like sloths.

Emojipedia.org reports nearly 60 new "emoji" symbols will be released to major platforms in 2019 (the number is much greater, when gender variations and skin tone options are factored in).

The new crop of symbols vetted by the Unicode Consortium features inclusive emojis that represent people with disabilities; there is also a guide dog and a service dog. On a more humorous note, the 2019 collection includes random icons that are all over the road -- sloths, underwear briefs, pinching fingers, waffles and otters, to name only a handful. 

The comprehensive list unveiled this week can be found here.
