Emoji Meaning

Use Apple Shortcuts to learn about any emoji.

This shortcut helps you to learn more about specific emoji, including their official name, history, and how they look on different platforms. Powered by the awesome Emojipedia website — the resource for all things emoji.

It works best when run with an emoji copied to your clipboard, or by sharing an emoji directly into the shortcut via the share sheet. But you can also type any emoji into the prompt (it’ll automatically pull in your clipboard in case you just copied one) and you’re off to the races. Well, if the races were emojipedia.org, that is. 😆

By the way, it works because you can add any emoji onto end of the emojipedia.org/ URL to search for it on their site. That’s right, emoji are supported right within a URL!
