Facebook Messenger launches sound emojis | Digital Trends Spanish

If you think that emojis or stickers are not enough to show your emotions, the new from Facebook interests you.

The social network has just released soundmojis (or phonoticons, as the company has translated them in Spanish) for its instant messaging app, emoticons that are accompanied by a short audio clip. “We present a complete library of phonoticons for you to choose from and that we will update regularly with new sound effects and familiar sound fragments,” says Facebook in a blog post.

The first phonotics available in Messenger are the applause, the drum roll, an evil laugh, a violin and a cricket, all of them with their corresponding sound, of course. Faceboook says it hopes to add audio clips from artists like Rebecca Black or from movies and series like Fast & furious 9, Brooklyn nine-nine or Bridgerton.

To be able to use these sound emojis, you just have to access the Messenger app, start a chat, touch the smiley face to open the expressions menu and select the speaker-shaped icon. Within this section, all the available phonoticons will appear and you will only have to choose one and send it as if it were a normal emoji.

Facebook is already rolling out the new function in the versions of Facebook for Android and iOS, as well as in the desktop version, so it is possible that you already have it active or it will arrive in the next few days.
