iOS Users Can Now Use Emoji as Search Terms in Spotlight


iPhone and iPad users can now use emoji to search Spotlight. The iOS Spotlight feature is available from any home screen by simply swiping down.

The feature seems to be something that may be useful, however it will not work with every emoji. If you are looking to buy a dress, you can simply type the dress emoji in Spotlight and a list of clothing stores will come out.


Searching a graduation cap will bring up schools around your area.


Searching with the money emoji will bring up a list of banks that are nearby.


Searching for a train will give you a list of transit stops nearby.


If you find any other emoji that bring up interesting search results, let us know in the comments below.
