Google Talk Hidden Emoticons

Google is again playing hide and seek with gtalk emoticons. Last time, I gave you list for Google Talk Secret Emoticons but that was some 8 months ago. Since then, there have been many changes in the system but still few emoticons remains undocumented.

Important Update: More secret emoticon can be found by incrementing the end number by this URL – http://mail.google.com/mail/e/350

Remember that these secret emoticons works for only following flavors of gtalk:

1) Google talk gadget

2) Gmail integrated chat application

3) Google talk labs edition

You can select either of three Classic, Round or Square shape of the emoticon by clicking the blue smiley-face button at the right side of the text-entry field and selecting the appropriate shape. If you move mouse arrow over them, they again re-animate to create lovely effect.

Update 1: Our loyal reader Jared has left a comment notifying about awesome robot emoticon. Try it out with [:|] robot

Update 2: An Annonymous reader has left a comment with another secret smiley to express something really bad i.e. poo . Try it out with ~@~ poop

    ~@~ turns into [poop]. Not really an emoticon, but worth mentioning I guess.

  • Really funny! Sure it worths.

  • Anonymous

    >.< is wincing, to the commenter that says it's winking. the expression looks pained. at best it's a tight blink, but if it's not smiling, what is that if not wincing? winking is one eye closing only... both are closed here.

  • Anand.M

    hey guys….i was fooling around in gchat and found a cat smiley….
    :3 gives u a cat’s head…
    changing the style of smiley{ from round to square } we can get cat animated too…..
    give it a try frnds…
    its great abd also wiggles its ears

  • someone

    I think :3 is a cat

  • aamb_li4blue

    writing between 2 astrieks will give the bold effect
    and writting between 2 underscores will give the italics letters but letters must be written without spacing in both the formats between the astrieks and unscores
    e.g *BOLD*
    _italics_
    also strike through by using hyphen e.g -strikethrough-
    Add some dramatic effects.
    Happy chatting!!!
