It’s much easier to send Google emoji from your phone but when it comes to entering emojis on the desktop, there’s no exact way to do that. Now, Google Chrome is working on making it easier to use emoji on desktops, Google will be introducing some shortcuts. This will be available for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome OS as well.

According to Google’s Adrienne Porter Felt, they are trying to test a faster way for users to insert emojis on the desktop in Chrome. All desktop operating systems today have a special way to bring up an emoji picker, Chrome wants to make that picker more convenient to reach by adding a shortcut to the menu as it appears when you right-click in any text field on the web in which there will be a menu for emojis where users can select their emojis from.


This feature is currently only available on Chrome Canary channel right now version 67.0.3389.0 for Mac. There is a chance that certain features won’t work as it should and that the final product might change but can be used by the users if they want to.

It is not yet confirmed when the feature will eventually find its way into the stable version of Chrome, but it will be a worthwhile alternative for the Chrome users.
