Google Docs: emojis are now easier to insert

Adding emojis to Google Docs will get easier with a new feature that lets you find and insert these popular emojis directly as you type, Google said in a blog post on Monday.

To insert an emoji, type the “@” followed by the corresponding text, such as “face” or “dog” for example. A drop-down menu will appear, allowing quick selection.


The search giant introduced emojis to Google Docs earlier this year. The company said it added the characters after receiving feedback about how to express feelings within a document.

Google Docs, along with Chrome, Drive and Gmail, are part of the company’s wide range of mostly free products. Offering powerful tools helps keep people interested in the Google ecosystem. That’s why Chrome remains the most popular web browser in the world, with 66% of the desktop browser market share.

Along with the search engine, Chrome helps fuel Google’s main revenue engine, the sale of online ads. Alphabet, Google’s parent company, made $69.7 billion in revenue last quarter, just short of its $70 billion target. Advertising accounted for $56.3 billion of that total. article adapted by CNET France
