An Emoji key (not to be confused with U+1F511) opens a menu for picking Emoji characters for inserting into text.

They are most common on touch-screen keyboards for changing into an emoji layer, but are also available on some physical keyboards where they launch a separate picker on the screen.

Microsoft Windows

Microsoft introduced a physical Emoji key on the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard and Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard in 2019, together with their proprietary Office key. It does officially require Microsoft Windows 10, version 1903 (May 2019 Update) or later.

The Emoji Picker can also be launched with Windows+. (period) or Windows+; (semicolon).
