Tweet an emoji to Google and it will reply with local results


Emojis can now do more than just add color to texts. 

Now you can tweet emojis at Google and the company's Twitter account will respond with relevant, local results, a company spokesperson told Teen Vogue

Google told Mashable the feature has responses for more than 200 different emojis, ranging from food to activities.

So, if you tweet a burrito emoji, Google will respond with a link to nearby restaurants that serve just that. 

When we tried using the Santa emoji, Google responded: "Hmm. Care to think of another emoji? Hint: try a food ?? #KnowNearby."

So sadly, you can't search for the nearest mall Santa just yet. 

And just in case you were wondering, Google has some pretty interesting responses for the poop and eggplant emojis.
