Emoticons in Gmail

Sometimes, words just do not seem to convey the message. For those times, Google has implemented emoticons into Gmail. To use them while composing an email, click on the square smiley face just to the left of the link button, then select the one you want; simple.

"Here on the Gmail team, we're always thinking of ways to help you communicate. Back in the day, we put chat right inside Gmail. Then along came group chat and more emoticons. And when we realized that late night communication had its downsides, we created a state-of-the-art lucidity test for after-hours email. Anyway, the black and white days of text-based emails have had their day. Following the evolutionary path blazed by colored labels, we present, in all their technicolor glory, emoticons in your mail."
