Facebook Messenger: How to Use Soundmojis

One picture can tell a thousand words.

In July, Facebook Messenger introduced “soundmojis”: Emojis that play a sound when you send them within Messenger. Facebook has given 30 different sounds to emojis by its sound design team. For example, you can send an emoji that has hands clapping and get real uproarious applause.

Others soundmojis are associated with pop culture sound clips. To ask Billie Eilish: “Stop. You are talking about what the heck? This is far more damaging than the red octagon.

For now, Soundmojis can only be used in Facebook Messenger. However, Facebook owns WhatsApp and Instagram, and has already been integrating the backends of the messaging platforms, and allowing for inter-platform messaging between Facebook and Instagram. It’s likely that you will see more noisy emojis over time.
