Facebook Messenger Launches Sound Emojis

We can expect the sound emoji will produce due to the images associated with them however, some of the sounds are unexpected. For instance, the goat emoji will utter a bleat whereas clapping hands give an applause sound effect. Both of these were expected. However, some give unexpected musical sounds such as  hourglass, which plays Drake’s “you only live once, that’s the motto” lyric, and the sun, which plays a clip from Kanye West’s “Good Morning.”

Furthermore, some of the emojis also play clips from famous TV shows and movies. The right-facing fist bump emoji plays Dominic Toretto’s famous “I don’t have friends, I got family” line from Fast & Furious 7.

Right now there is less variety when it comes to soundmojis however Facebook has promised to update them regularly with the new sounds, so you should keep on checking them up.

Tomorrow is World Emoji Day and this news has come just before that day in order to celebrate it.
