The de­fault emoji char­ac­ter viewer is small enough to sit at the side of your desk­top. Cy­cle through cat­e­gories us­ing the row of icons at the bot­tom.

Click on the icon in the top-right cor­ner of the emoji view to ex­pand the win­dow and dis­play the cat­e­gories in the left side­bar with full char­ac­ter previews to the right.

The up­date brings many new vari­ants on ex­ist­ing emo­jis and plenty of new ones. For ex­am­ple, click on a hu­man char­ac­ter and you will be able to choose var­i­ous shades of hair.

6 Typ­ing char­ac­ters

Dou­ble-click on a char­ac­ter to add it to your text. You can then tweak the size via the re­spec­tive app’s ex­ist­ing for­mat­ting op­tions. There are many new op­tions to ex­plore.
