Google Adds Colorful (and Animated) Emoticons to Gmail!

What's with Google rolling-out all the Gmail upgrades lately? First with the Gmail Mobile Enhancements and now Gmail finally has emoticons? Whatever their reasons, I'm just glad they did!

To start using these colorful cartoons, just click on the smiley face located in the formatting toolbar when you are composing an email (if you don't see it, make sure you have rich formatting turned on and sign out and sign back in), and start clicking away to add wonderful emoticons to your emails!

The only reason why my mom wouldn't switch over to Gmail from hotmail was the lack of emoticons. Maybe now I will be able to convince her.

Can't wait to see the new emoticons! I'm going to check my Gmail right now!

Nooo. I love the emoticons that they used to have. They just appeared as text, then rolled over to make a face. Very cute, simple, and streamlined. Why would they want to look just like every other messenger?

Hmm . . . I can think of some times that I would use the pile of poop emoticon . . . to describe how a meeting went or something like that. Not for calling names though.
