So... as I was looking through my apps to update them, I seen that Messenger introduced a new thing called soundmojis. Naturally, I immediately jumped on this, since from what I understood from the explanation that was given in the release notes, they seem like a form of accessible GIF, but with emojis and sound effects and music. So, as you can imagine, I can't wait to try this out, especially because I'm a person who loves using emojis in every thing from messages to family and friends, to emails. Another reason is because of my statement above. To me, from what I understood, they seem like a form of accessible GIF. just with emoji sound effects and music.
So, has anyone tried them out yet? How accessible are they? Where would you find them?
In my opinion, I really hope this takes off. Plus, I hope that eventually, they open it up for 3rd parties to make their own, just like they can do with GIF.s and stickers. Because if that happens, then not only could we have a fun new way of using emojis, but, I also think, that this could be a real boone for us blind people who use Messenger. Although I also hope that other messaging apps will pick up on this as well.
Anyway, sorry for the longwinded post. I just wanted to see what if any experience you guys have had with them, and also what you all think!
