How to Easily Type Emoji in macOS

Adding emoji to our conversations is just a way of life, and our smartphones have made this incredibly easy to do. But what about the desktop? Yes, it's easy to access emoji from here too, but it's a little more hidden than it is on the phone.

You can bring up the emoji picker in any text field by typing:

Control+Command+Space

This will bring up a pop up with a similar picker to what you have on iOS. It's actually a little better than the iOS picker since there's a search function available so you can find what you're looking for quickly.
