Windows 7: Do You Speak Emoji? Bing Does

Do You Speak Emoji? Bing Does

As you likely know, emoji are small pictures used to express an idea or emotion. With the explosion of mobile devices and the ubiquity of texting, it has become a shorthand language used by billions of us around the world. At Bing we want you to be able to search the same way you communicate every day.

Today, we are announcing the support of emoji characters in Bing search in all English markets. With this new feature, you can search using your favorite emoji, and Bing will return results based on the semantic meaning of the emoji.

Ever been confused by the meaning of some of the emoji? Bing isnít, and can help.

But emoji search on Bing can be even more powerful than just finding out an emojiís meaning. You can combine them to create more multi-word searches. Donuts in Seattle, anyone?

Selecting with emoji may even surprise you.

I think emoji is quite popular in Asian countries especially in Japan. Emoji is formed from Japanese words/meaning picture and character/letter. (kanji anyone )
even in screenshots with examples there is lots of Asian/Japanese things.

Emoji is not as popular in western countries so I can understand why someone would be thinking "why would anyone want to do this"

Seriously? That's kind of an ignorant thing to say, if not just plain offensive, especially after vaida3 already explaining why it was likely incorporated in the first place. Not everyone has the need, patience, money or the knowledge/capacity to learn to speak, read and write English fluently. If this is something that's popular and can help, it's most certainly a welcome addition. Doesn't mean you're forced to use it in any way.
