Feeling ? Or having a moment? Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Use Skype emoticons to liven up your instant message conversations, or add them to your mood message to let your friends know how you’re feeling. You can select the emoticon you want to use from the Expression picker in the IM window (by clicking on the smiley in the chat window) or use the keyboard shortcut – a set of characters or a specific word in brackets. If you hover over an emoticon in the palette, you’ll see its keyboard shortcut. Additionally, for emoticons with gray dots, you can customize it before sending by right clicking (desktop) or long pressing (mobile) on the emoticon: There are loads of visible emoticons, hidden emoticons and Mojis to choose from. We are adding new emoticons to our collection all the time, so be sure to check the Featured tab to see our most recently added emoticons.
