You can easily respond to the current situation and let others know how you are feeling by using emotes (aka emojis, emoticons, etc.). Just select Emotes (smiley face icon) in the Navigation Bar. A bar with 6 emojis displays, with a Clear and Edit button. You can select the emote you wish to send, or use the 1-6 keys to quickly send an emote at any time.
Note: Emotes show above your head and in your video preview for 3 seconds, except for the raised hand, which stays raised until your press 6 or Clear.
All emotes will show above your avatar for 3 seconds before fading, except for 6 (raised hand), which will stay raised until you press 6 again or select Clear in the Emote bar. While your hand is raised, your name will move up to the top of the Participants list.
Edit Default Emotes
By default, use the 1-6 keys for the following emotes:
- (1) - Wave
- (2) - Heart
- (3) - Party popper
- (4) - Thumbs up
- (5) - Question mark
- (6) - Raised hand
However, you can customize your emojis for keys 1-5! Select Emotes (smiley face icon) in the Bottom Bar, then select Edit. The Customize emotes window opens. Select the number you wish to edit, then choose your desired emoji.
Note: You can only change 1-5; 6 will always be a raised hand.
Note: The graphics for the Emotes will vary depending on your operating system.
