Facebook introduced the Soundmoji feature for Messenger users earlier this month. As the name suggests, the feature offers audio along with emojis to elevate the conversation between friends. Different types of Soundmojis have been made available, including farts, drums, laughs, fiddles, ghosts, shocks, kisses, and more. Soundmojis are essentially next-level emojis that allow you to send short sound clips in a Messenger chat. They are now part of the multimedia content users can send to their friends on Facebook Messenger and sit alongside options like stickers, GIF images, and emojis.
