- Emojis just got a voice with Facebook Messenger.
- Facebook is adding emoji with sound to Facebook Messenger.
- The news arrives ahead of World Emoji Day, which happens every July 17th.
Hi Readers!! If you are a Facebook user, then there is good news for you!! The social media platform today introduced a new feature on Facebook Messenger called Soundmojis. Soundmojis are nothing but emojis with sound. It’s a next-level emoji that lets you send:
- Short sound clips in a Messenger chat, ranging from clapping, crickets, drumroll, and evil laughter.
- To audio clips from your favorite artists like Rebecca Black and your favorite TV shows and movies like Universal Pictures’ F9, NBC, and Universal Television’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Netflix and Shondaland’s Bridgerton.
Facebook said in a blog post:
We’re launching an entire Soundmoji library for you to choose from, which we’ll update regularly with new sound effects and famous sound bites. Each sound is represented by an emoji, keeping the visual emojis we all love in play while bringing sound into the mix.
Every day, people send more than 2.4 billion messages with emojis on Messenger. Announcing the development on his Facebook page, CEO Mark Zuckerberg added, “our sound design team traveled and spent a day on an organic farm with goats to deliver this experience for all of you.”
To access Soundmojis, tap the emoji button while you’re in a Messenger conversation, tap on the sound icon on the far right, and then scroll through the list of available options. Just tap on an emoji to preview the accompanying sound and then hit the “send” button to drop it into your conversation.
According to an Emojipedia analysis, the top 10 emojis are:
- 😂 Face with Tears of Joy
