Facebook adds audio emoji to Facebook Messenger. The name of them is of course Soundmojis.
To access Soundmojis, press the emoji button while in a Messenger conversation, tap the audio icon on the far right, and then scroll through the list of available options. Just tap an emoji to preview the corresponding sound, then press the “send” button to drop it into your conversation.
Some of the sounds are expected: the goat emoji gives a bleat, while clapping hands emoji play, for example, an applause sound effect. But some are musical, like the hourglass, which plays Drake̵
Remember to keep checking the list of emoji as time goes on. Facebook says it will update it “regularly” with new sounds.
The news comes ahead of World Emoji Day, which takes place every July 17th. And if you want a preview of new emoji that may soon hit your devices, check out the draft Emoji 14.0.
