Google Hangouts is a nice instant messaging service by Google. It offers text messaging and video calls both. Google is trying its best to offer better service to attract more users. To make it more popular, Google has also shutdown its GTalk service and asked users to migrate to this new Hangouts. I personally use this service and like the video call quality of the service. I also wrote a Google Hangouts Guide
explaining all its features.
To make your text conversation better, it also supports Emoji. There are so many to use, Last year in December 2014, Google confirmed the addition of few Hidden emojis
. But it didn’t reveal the emoji codes of those hidden emoji in public. In this post, I am going to write about those hidden emoji codes. You can try these and use in Hangouts.
Google Hangouts Hidden Animated Emojis
1. Laughing Emoji
Putting ‘hahahaha’ in your hangouts chat will show you the first hidden emoji. This can also be achieved by typing ‘hehehehe’, ‘LMAO’, ‘ROFL’ in chat. There is no case sensitivity for these EMoji codes.
2. Happy Birthday
Write Happy Birthday and see how it flashes a birthday cake. There is not a single cake emoji. You will see different-different emoji with cakes by using this code.
3. Cheering Emoji
Like the laughing EMoji, there are also few cheering emoji codes. These codes are “Woohoo” or “Woot” or “Yay!!”. Use without quotes.
Ponies is another hidden Hangouts Emoji. You need to write ‘/ponies’ and you will see something like below
You can also see many ponies by writing ‘/ponystream’ in chat without quotes.
