Every day, people send more than 2.4 billion messages with emojis on Messenger. Emojis add color and vibrancy to Messenger chats all over the world. But, what if these emojis could talk – what sound would they make? Today, on World Emoji Day, Facebook is giving Messenger emojis an upgrade — with the launch of ‘Soundmojis.’
Starting today, Messenger users will be able to use ‘Soundmojis,’ a next-level emoji that enables them to send short sound clips in Messenger chat. In addition, users will be able to choose from a library of options that range 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. “Ah, the drama of it all.”
Each sound is sent as an emoji (no words), providing surprising delights through culturally relevant audio clips.
Facebook is also launching an entire Soundmoji library for users to choose from, updated regularly with new sound effects and famous sound bites. Each sound is represented by an emoji, keeping the visual emojis people love while bringing sound into the mix.
To check out soundmojis, users can head to their Messenger app, start a chat, tap the smiley face to access the expressions tray, and select the loudspeaker icon. From there, they can preview and send their favorite soundmojis again and again.

● Step 1: Head to the Messenger app, start a chat,
● Step 2: Tap the smiley face to access the expressions tray
● Step 3: Select the loudspeaker icon.
● Step 4: Preview and send your favorite soundmojis again and again.
