Business review tycoon Yelp, has made it even easier to search for a business or restaurant that offers exactly what you want. No longer do you have to engage in the laborious task of actually typing out what you’re looking for. Instead, you can scroll through 800+ emojis to quickly find one that suits your needs.

If you’re looking for a place to grab a beer, find and select whichever icon symbolizes beer (depending on what you’re looking for this could get dicey), hit the search button, and be rewarded with listings for nearby places you can grab a beer.

I’m pretty sure deciding between the various beer emojis took longer than typing “beer” but I suppose this is great if you’re looking for a product or service and know what its emoji looks like but don’t know what it’s called.
