Tweet any emoji at Google and get relevant search results
December 8, 2016
If you tweet an emoji at Google, it will interpret it and show you relevant results.
The feature that starts from Wednesday takes a few seconds to come up with relevant Google searches for an emoji.
For example, if users have to find a restaurant in the area, they simply have to tweet the restaurant emoji at Google. In a few seconds, a link to Google search will appear with a map listing the restaurants.
According to Google, there are 21 million tweets sent every hour and 600,000 of them contain at least one emoji.
"A staggering 74 per cent of people in the US alone regularly use emojis, sending an average of 96 per day," said Google.
The company also said that there were over 200 different emojis that will trigger results across places to eat, things to see and do, and "a few easter eggs thrown in too".
Google recently introduced a new update for its Duo video calling app. Bearing version number 5.0, the update brings several new features for an enhanced user experience.
Justin Uberti, Google's technical head for Duo, tweeted that Duo is getting video quality improvements, camera rotation and other features along with bug fixes, with the new update.
Available for both iOS and Android, Google Duo has crossed over 10 million downloads ever since it was launched.
In August this year, the company revealed that it will soon introduce audio calling feature to Duo. It has been ranked third in Google's list of Top Trending Apps of 2016 in India.
