Everyone is making emoji easier to use anywhere, from Twitter to Microsoft and now, to Google.
Google is updating Chrome with a new emoji picker, to be invoked by the right-click context menu.
This will make it easier for users to enter emoji into text boxes and chat web-apps where desired.
Like emoji? They're getting easier to use in Chrome! On Chrome Canary for Mac, flip the #enable-emoji-context-menu flag to insert emoji with just a right click. ?????? I'm so excited!! ? @ramyfication @yana88yu ? pic.twitter.com/80oXspmPfX

While it is available in macOS only at the moment, Google has confirmed the feature will be coming to Windows and Linux as well upon release.
Microsoft has made it easier to use emoji in Windows 10 as well with its emoji picker, and that will get even easier to use with the Spring Creators Update coming out this month.
