Skype recently introduced a series of musical emojis called 'Mojis' in order to give users a new way to interact over chat. Now the Mojis are getting a celebrity endorsement from former Beatles member Sir Paul McCartney.
Mojis are similar to GIFs in that they are expressive video clips that can be shared online. However, the Mojis also include sound, which gives them a unique advantage over traditional GIFs. To popularize the new tool, Skype is introducing a set of Mojis designed by McCartney. The icons are animated and feature sounds recorded by the singer himself. There are 10 Mojis in total and many feature Beatles-esque sounds that are sure to make fans feel nostalgic.
As an increasing number of messaging platforms become integrated with GIFs, Skype's new musical emojis give users a unique way to express themselves online.
