Those who so desire can now use emojis in their Google Docs

There’s a new version of Google Docs that might be just what you need to add some zest and color to your work projects.

Using the built-in search and insert features, emojis can now be quickly located and inserted into your document without leaving the current text box.

Now all users have to do is input a “@” followed by the word, emotion, item, or whatever else they want to express to get a list of relevant emojis.

Typing “@:” or “:” will bring up a dropdown menu of emojis, with the ability to browse the whole set of emojis.

All Google Workspace clients, as well as older G Suite Basic and Business customers, and users with personal Google accounts, will soon have access to the new functionality, which is enabled by default and requires no administrative intervention.

According to the company’s announcement (opens in new tab), this revision expands upon the emoji reaction capability introduced for Google Docs in April 2022. Now, users may react to entire phrases and paragraphs with emojis, just like they would with messages in a group chat.

The new version is the most recent release from Google Workspace, which aims to improve the experience of using products like Docs for users everywhere.

With the latest update to Google Docs, users may now choose numerous chunks of text from different locations at once, making the formatting and editing process more efficient by reducing the need for repeated modifications.

Recent updates to Google Docs include “assistive writing features” such suggested synonyms and expanded sentence completion.

The program will also highlight occasions where the author would benefit from switching to the active rather than passive voice, as well as “inappropriate” terminology.
