When a diverse set of emojis rolled out in 2015, people were happy that there were finally options for skin tones beyond that Lego-like yellow. But the couple emojis—while expanding eventually to include LGBTQ couples—remained noticeably monotone.

Thankfully that's not the case anymore. While the built-in emoji keyboard on your phone still doesn't have those options (come on!), Focus Features took matter into their own hands and launched an emoji app this week that features interracial couples of all sexual orientations.

The Love-moji app is inspired by the upcoming movie Loving, which is based on the real story of Richard and Mildred Loving who fought to make their interracial marriage legal by taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court in 1967.

While Loving isn't out in theaters until on November 4, you can download free app in the Apple App Store and Google Play now.
