Facebook introduced Soundmojis in July to mark World Emoji Day. These sound-based Emojis use sound effects and famous song quips that are based on nature emojis. Messenger will play the drum emoji when you send it to a friend. It also displays an animated emoji in chat.
You can use these sound emojis to make familiar sounds such as clapping and a drumroll or parts of popular pop songs like “thanks, next” by Ariana Grande or “WAP” from Cardi B. Soundmojis can also contain audio from your favorite TV shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Fast and Furious9.
The chicken bowl emoji is the part of WAP that says “Macaroni and a Pot,” while the stop emoji plays Billie Eilish’s “Stop. What the hell are you talking??” from her hit song “Therefore, I Am.”
