The emoji character will now display in the message, just as it would if you were using it in the Messages app on an iPhone or iPad. While the code for displaying Emoji characters is set by the Unicode Consortium, the look of the images themselves is chosen by the operating system developer or phone manufacturer.
So, for example, the gun emoji is rendered as a handgun in Android, but as a green water pistol in macOS and iOS. And developers can add multiple skin tones to emoji for faces and hands, as Apple has done in recent versions of macOS and iOS.
You can call up the emoji window with a keyboard shortcut. In most apps, you can tap an emoji to call up the categories and choose one, then choose the emoji you want from there. Emoji are a fun and effective way of communicating and using them on Mac.
