20 Google Hangouts Animated Emojis to Impress Your Friends
Google Hangouts offers you an excellent platform to communicate, keeping you connected on computer or smartphone, via video calls and texts. Businesses have also adopted this platform for business communication.
To give it a competitive edge over other similar platforms, Google has advanced Google Hangouts bringing on board, additional features, which are aimed at facilitating communication. One of these features is the use of Emoji.
Today, the use of emoji has grown, and their application is now acceptable even in business communications. With this popularity of emoji, we may be witnessing the birth of a new language. Emoji help us solve the problem of sending a message without a tone, and offers the best way of communicating what may be hard to put into words.
On Google Hangouts, in latest Internet news, you will find different emoji, but there are 20 hidden emojis, which you may not have discovered.
1. Angry Mob – “/pitchforks”
When you are chatting on Google Hangout and you would like to communicate in a light tone, that you are a bit angry with that person, and you may be looking for him/her soon, there is a better way to do that. Just type, “/pitchforks” and all of a sudden, an angry mob will run across the display carrying torches and pitchforks. This is not suitable for a formal chat, but will work well with your buddies.
When chatting with a friend, and they send you something funny, you can join the laughter by using emoji to show that you are laughing. Just type “Hehehehe”, and a laughing emoji will appear.
Another way of inducing laughter in a conversation is by typing four sets of “ha” and immediately a laughing emoji will pop up.
When you want to make the person on the other end laugh, you can do it by introducing a duck and fox, which repeatedly hide and appear at the center of the chatroom. To do this type “rofl” and get a different antic of the fox and duck
Lmao has been with us for long now, but you can give it some life by using an emoji. This is when you want the person on the other side to laugh. For the emoji to appear, type the word, “Lmao” and must be followed by two exclamation marks. When you type repeatedly, a laughing duck and fox will appear.
If you want a different way of laughing, type “Bwahahahahaha”.
