Google now Fluent in Emoji
Tweet @Google an emoji, and you will get a reply which include a pun, GIF, and a link to local search results relevant to your emoji!
It’s finally happened, we can now communicate with Google through nothing more than sending them an emoji, but only on Twitter. According to this report on Mashable, Google’s Twitter handle can reply to over 200 different emojis, plus a few Easter Eggs.
Google announced the update on December 6th:
We speak emoji. Let’s talk. 🙌 #KnowNearby pic.twitter.com/HjIMs3KPKe

We thought we would give it a go here at HookedOnMedia, and sent @Google our favourite emoji, the Dancing Lady. Sure enough, within minutes Google came back with an answer:
The link in the tweet lead straight to a Google search showing dance clubs in the area that we are currently working from. Neat, huh?
Well done Google, we take our hats off to you!
