Facebook Messenger for iOS launches what we’ve all been waiting for: Soundmoji
Ahead of World Emoji Day on July 17, Facebook is launching Soundmoji for its Messenger app, which will add sound to some of your favorite emoji. Here is how it works.
So what is a Soundmoji? It’s a next-level emoji that lets you send short sound clips in a Messenger chat, ranging from applause 👏, crickets 🦗, drum rolls 🥁 and evil laughs 👻, to audio clips from your favorite artists. like Rebecca Black and your favorite TV shows and movies like F9 from Universal Pictures, Brooklyn Nine-Nine from NBC and Universal Television, and Bridgerton from Netflix and Shondaland. “Ah, the drama of it all.”
To get started with Soundmoji, here’s what you need to do:
- Go to the Messenger app, then start a chat
- Tap the smiley to open the expressions menu
- Select the speaker icon
- Preview and send your favorite Soundmoji.
For now, Facebook will be offering 27 Soundmoji, and while some of you can probably think of the Windows Live Messenger feature, it looks a bit like the 2020 version.
Here is an overview of the functionality:
This feature comes a few months after Facebook announced its integration with Instagram, although it is not possible to use this Soundmoji feature on other social networks.
Lately, Facebook has been working on several new features for its most popular apps, including multi-device support on WhatsApp, exclusive friends on Instagram, and now this Soundmoji feature on Messenger.
