Search for a Specific Emoji on your ios Device

Life has not exactly been easy for iPhone users since the huge number of emojis that were introduced earlier this decade. Though, the emojis are aesthetic as compared to their Android counterpart. There was one thing lagging with the use of emojis. Thankfully, the ios14 update has come to our rescue. The latest update for Apple users gives them the option to search for a specific emoji. Anybody talked about ‘texting made easier?’. 

Well, the previous version had something similar to it, where specific words triggered suggestions of emojis. However, this was only possible if you had word suggestions for your keyboard. There was also a big downside to the same, as some you just wanted to type a word and add the emoji later. Then, enticed by the emoji suggestion you would directly click on the emoji. Resulting in an incomplete sentence with an emoji at the end. Now, you don’t have to worry about the same. The new feature of searching emojis is all that you need. So, let us learn how this search option works.

How to search for a Specific Emoji?

The first thing you have to make sure is that you have updated your ios to the latest version ‘ios 14’. Once you finish doing that, open any app where you can use your keyboard. Make sure you are not using any third-party keyboard. So,  as soon as you click on the text input area you’ll see your regular keyboard. Just click on the emoji keyboard button.

(If you are unable to see the emoji button on your on-screen keyboard. It means that the emoji keyboard has been deactivated in Settings. To get the keyboard back, you will have to navigate to Settings then General. Under which you select Keyboard and finally again Keyboards. Here you’ll see an option “Add New Keyboard”, click that and select, “Emoji.”)

When you open the Emoji keyboard, you will be able to see the “Search Emoji” input area just at the top of the keyboard. If you don’t see the option to search for an emoji then you probably haven’t updated the Ios version yet. So yeah, do it.

Now, the “Search Emoji” input area will direct you through the process. Type in the specific keyword for the emoji you are looking for. We suggest using a definite word to describe the emoji you are looking for when you are absolutely sure of the emoji you wish to use. Like typing a fire truck would bring the exact emoji whereas typing words like “smile” will get you more than one emoji option.

Not just that, you can also type in categories. Like typing a word that matches a lot of potential emojis will be easier in cases when you are not sure or want to use more than one emoji of the same type. For example: Typing words like vegetable will bring you all the vegetables on the keyboard. All the options will be available in one row and all you have to do is swipe left to right to find the emoji you are looking for.

When you have found the emoji that you are looking for, just tap on it. As soon as you tap on an emoji will be inserted into the app you’re using. You can swipe to add other emojis you are looking for from the same keyword. 

As of now, this feature to search for a specific emoji is only available on iPhones. The iPad users will still have to go back to the old emoji Keyboard to manually find the perfect fit. You can always go back to the predictive text technique, but you won’t have to do that for long. As Apple plans to introduce the same feature across other devices.
