Google Docs is updated with an easy-to-use emoji command. Here’s all you need to know

This year in April, Google added the most anticipated feature on Google Docs: the availability of emoji reactions within the document. Now the company has announced an emoji shortcut that will let users use emojis conveniently.

While writing something on Google docs, web users had to copy and paste reactions from other sources. Then, later on, Google added an emoji option in which users had to highlight a word, then select the emoji option displayed on the right side of the document. So, adding emojis to the document was a bit troublesome for users. Fortunately, the company had made this thing better enough to insert any kind of emoji into a document.

That said, users have to type @ along with the name of a specific emoji to insert into a document, for example, @dog. Users can insert emojis directly in line with the phrases by typing this. When you order the descriptor, Google Docs will automatically start providing a list of related emojis. In a blog post, Google said that by adding emojis, one could easily express their ideas by incorporating them into the document and making it impactful.


Besides this, regular Google Docs users are familiar with @ symbol as it also brings other options. Typing @ command enables different tools, for instance, to draft an email in Docs and sending to Gmail directly from there. In addition, Google Docs stores events from your Gmail ID and opens them into the file, which makes the whole process quicker and more efficient.

Moreover, it allows you to create a flowchart of product reviews, actions, etc. Since only one platform is used to do all these functions, it makes it easier to collaborate with your colleagues when working on projects. It also makes accessing several media types such as tables, layouts, graphs, etc. Also, the @ command serves many other powerful functions after the update.

The feature has started to roll out gradually, so open Google Docs on the web and try it. If you don’t find it, don’t worry. It will appear after some time, as the blog post stated that the feature is going to roll out gradually.
