Just when you thought your group chats on Messenger couldn’t possibly get more annoying, Facebook has announced Soundmojis for World Emoji Day. As the name suggests, Soudmojis are basically just really loud emojis. Some might say great, others would rather call it hell.
According to Facebook, more than 2.4 billion emojis are sent on Messenger every day, so why not make them even more annoying, right?
“Now imagine if your emojis could talk — what sound would they make? Introducing Messenger’s latest feature: Soundmojis. Your chats just got a whole lot louder!” Facebook said in an announcement.
As part of the initial launch, Messenger will allow you to send clapping, crickets, drumroll and evil laughter to your friends, which is basically a certified way to get removed from the group chat immediately.
Or, if you’re keen to spice it up a little more, you can use audio from the likes of Rebecca Black to remind your coworkers that it’s Friday, or quote your favourite shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Bridgerton.
Cooking macaroni in a pot? Cardi B has you covered with a sound for that too.
