Do you want for example Insert an emoji in an email, then there is on the iMac, MacBook and so on with macOS different ways of doing this. Here I want to briefly show you an app and a key combination that is already in the system. Which path you choose depends on your personal workflow and how good you can speak English;)
Within the App named Rocket by Matthew Palmer it is enough if you press a hotkey and enter the search term for the emoji or the desired GIF after that character. The default is the colon. But if you often work with colons, for example, and then don't always want to be annoyed by the emoji overview, you can also set a different key.
After the colon or the hotkey you have set, you enter the search term; for example "Rocket" for a rocket. At the beginning it may help to try out all the letters to see the emojis that are listed below. Does that sound like a quick and technically appropriate way for you to insert emojis and smileys? Then you can use the Mac app Rocket download here.
Basically, however, it is also possible without an app. If you press the key combination CRTL + CMD + SPACEBAR presses, then you will also get one Emoji overview displayed. If you don't mind using this key combination and you can quickly integrate it into your workflow, then you don't need to install an extra app.
This is what it looks like in practice - an overview of the frequently used emojis as well as the standard overview including a search bar (above) and a topic selection (below):
Which way do you find the best? Using a hotkey and then using search terms to find the right emoji may take some getting used to. The key combination CRTL + CMD + SPACEBAR has to be internalized first. Maybe the mixture of both is the right thing ... what is your opinion?
