If you've ever been eager to search your photo collection with nothing but emojis, Google Photos will now let you do just that. Okay, so maybe this is just an April Fools' Day joke from the folks at Mountain View ... but it actually works.

As you can see in the video above, there's no longer any need to mess around with pesky words. You can simply drop an emoji of what you're looking for and Google will do the work. For example, dropping a dog emoji in the search box will bring up any picture of dogs you have in your Google Photos library.

We're unsure if this will stick around past April Fools' Day, but you can try it out for yourself in the Google Photos app now.
