Someone sent me an emoji in a text on an iPhone. How can I lookup the "description" of what it represents using the native UI?
Ideally I want to lookup the unicode name / description, but a data point will do. I'm interested in an answer for current versions of iOS and MacOS.
On MacOS it's fairly easy to extract the data point from the emoji by looking at the hex codes of the character, but that doesn't work on iOS.
I know that I can find an emoji from a text description when sending a message. But I see no obvious way to "reverse map" the emoji when I receive one.
For reference I was sent this: ❤️👈
and want to know how I could send that "left pointing finger" myself.
