Inserting emojis in Google Docs is now much more streamlined thanks to a new update that allows people immediately search and insert the popular smileys when typing, Google said in a blog post Monday.
Inserting an emoji requires typing the "@" followed by relevant text, such as "smile" or "dog." A dropdown menu will appear, allowing for quick selection.
Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
The search giant introduced emojis in earlier this year. The company said it added the characters after receiving feedback on providing less formal ways of expressing opinions.
Docs, along with Chrome, Drive and Gmail, are part of the company's large suite of mostly free products. Offering powerful tools helps keep people engaged with the Google ecosystem. It's why Chrome remains the world's most popular web browser, retaining 66% of the desktop browser market share. Chrome, along with Search, helps feed Google's main revenue driver, online ad sales. Google parent Alphabet brought in $69.7 billion in revenue , just shy of its $70 billion target. Advertising made up $56.3 billion of that total.
