What are Soundmojis (or Sound Emojis)?
In honour of World Emoji Day this year, Facebook first released Soundmojis in July. Based on the nature of the emoji, these sound-based emoticons may play pertinent sound effects or catchy song quotes. Therefore, Messenger will play the relevant sound and an animated emoji in the chat window when you send a drum emoji to a buddy.
These sound emojis include elements of popular pop songs like Thank You, Next by Ariana Grande and WAP by Cardi B, as well as everyday noises like clapping and drum rolls. Additionally, some of your favourite TV shows and motion pictures, such Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Fast and Furious 9, are featured in the Soundmojis.
For instance, the red stop emoji represents Billie Eilish’s song Stop, what the hell are you talking about, and the chicken bowl emoji acts as WAP where it says Macaroni in a pot. a line from her hit song Therefore I Am.
