Don’t let the calendar confuse you, this one is no joking matter: Google has brought emoji search to Photos on the Web, Android and iOS.

All you need to do is paste in the appropriate emoji and it’ll return the matching results – a gift for anyone who is just all too busy (or lazy) to type, say, ‘sunrise’ into the search bar.
