🎙️🎵 Facebook Messenger introduces another new feature. Some emoji... we will hear
Facebook Messenger is getting a new feature. This time it's audio emoji, which when tapped will trigger audio. The new feature is called Soundmoji and can be found under the speaker icon in a chat with a particular user. The feature was announced to mark World Emoji Day.
July 17 marks World Emoji Day. Facebook revealed that every day, Messenger users send an average of 2.4 billion messages that contain emoticons. For this reason, the company decided to prepare a new feature.
Facebook Messenger gets emoji that can play sounds. The feature has been called Soundmoji. It can be accessed from the smiley face and then by tapping the speaker. You can see it in the video below.
Users will be able to disguise themselves with different Soundmoji. These include hand claps, snare drums, crickets, or a sinister smile. But it doesn't stop there, as Facebook also lets users choose audio clips of artists and TV shows and movies, such as Universal Pictures' F9, NBC and Universal Television's Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Netflix and Bridgerton of Shondaland.
The novelty is already being rolled out to the Messenger app. However, its full implementation may take some time. It is worth mentioning that the Android version of Messenger has already had over 5 billion downloads.
