Skype's hidden emoticons

What are Skype's hidden emoticons?

Emoticons are the little graphics (also known as smilies) that you can add to your chat messages. The programmers often put new emoticons in the Skype software, but they don't always show them in the chat options.

You can add emoticons using the chat options, or you can type special codes into your message.

For example, if you type "We are using (skype)" then your message will show the Skype emoticon.

It should look like this, "We are using Skype icon"

Try some of these codes in your messages

These are the emoticons from Skype for Windows v5.10 including some hidden emoticons.

We won't spoil the surprise by showing you the graphics for these emoticons.


Just type the codes into a chat message to see for yourself.
