Stethoscope 🩺 emoji in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook

How to insert the Stethoscope 🩺 symbol/emoji into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook.  Both in Office for Windows and Office for Mac.

Trivia: the stethoscope was invented by a Frenchman who was embarrassed putting his ear upon a lady’s chest to hear her heartbeats.  His original was a simple tube, not the dual-ear device we know today.

How Stethoscope 🩺 looks in different fonts.

The Stethoscope is only available in Windows using the font Segoe UI Emoji.
