Sound emojis are the new invention of Facebook.

Now emojis evolve and become Soundmojis. It is the latest function incorporated into Facebook Messenger and as you may have guessed from its name, they are nothing more than emojis with sounds.

Facebook mentions that the currently available Soundmojis will not be final as they are working to add new ones. Possibly the Soundmojis will not be the best option when one is in a meeting or in class, but surely they can give a lot of play in our conversations. Of course, Facebook could also work on improving its privacy conditions but that already seems to be left for another day.
