Facebook launches an emoji with sound to Facebook Messenger. The name for the emoji is Soundmojis.To access the Soundmoji Feature users must tap the emoji button while they’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. Some of the sounds are expected to be that the goat emoji utters a bleat, while the clapping hands emoji plays an applause sound effect. Some are musical, such as the hourglass, which plays Drake’s song you only live once, that’s the motto lyric, and the sun symbol plays a clip from Kanye West’s Good Morning.
Some of the emoji play clips from TV shows and movies: the right-facing fist bump emoji plays Dominic Toretto’s famous I don’t have friends, I got the family line from Fast & Furious 7.Be sure to keep checking the list of emoji as time goes on. Facebook says it will update it regularly with new sounds.
