Skype Emoticons, Skype Messenger Emoticons

The Skype emoticon story...

Skype is a way to call another computer from your own computer and have a voice chat. Skype recognises that sometimes it's just not convenient to talk. That's where Skype instant messaging fits in and the link to emoticons. Skype messenger has a really cool feature to edit messages. We all know it's easy to accidentally hit send before checking what we've written, then realise we've made a mistake. Skype now lets you edit messages you've already sent. No more embarrassing moments needed!

Personalizing Skype

'Skype Extras' is a good place to start. There are hundreds of third party developed applications that you can download free and plug into Skype from their Skype website - some are 'Certified by Skype' others aren't.

Then you can take a look in the Skype shop under 'Personalise Skype' where you'll find the following:

* Avatars: design your own WeeMee avatar or Klonies avatar or use a My Emoticons avatar

* Wallpapers: Skype have a collection to choose from to customize the Skype window

* Ringtones: a cool feature - change your friend's ringtone and surprise them. You push the ringtone to your friend

* Hidden emoticons: there aren't many but sometimes they come in handy - our favourite is 'mooning'
