Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut if you can’t ever remember how to activate the macOS emoji picker and always press the wrong keyboard shortcut until you get it right – for reference it’s ⌘+⌃+Space (Command + Control + Space).

This shortcut uses local AppleScript if run from the current Mac or runs the script over SSH if used with Siri on the HomePod.
