Bing Allows Consumers to Use Emojis as Search Term

Bing’s search engine now recognizes emojis, the company announced yesterday, October 27.

“With the explosion of mobile devices and the ubiquity of texting, it has become a shorthand language used by billions of us around the world,” wrote Nick Roberts, senior program manager at Bing Relevance Intent, in a blog post. “We want you to be able to search the same way you communicate every day.”

Users can search for single emojis, or in combination with other emojis or text. Take a look below to see how it works:

Yahoo and Yelp are also already emoji-searchable, though Google is not, despite the fact that enough people Google emojis that the characters appear in suggested searches.
