33 Awesome Hidden Skype Emoticons & Smileys

By Megan O'Neill 

With Skype for iPhone and iPad hitting over 120 million downloads earlier this month, we thought now was the perfect time to compile a list of fun hidden Skype emoticons.

Skype already has a bunch of fun preloaded emoticons for you to choose from, like the Emo guy (emo), the dancing guy (\o/) and, of course, the ever popular puking smiley (puke).  But there are loads of hidden Skype emoticons that you can access… as long as you know what to type in!  With the cheat sheet below, you’re all set to wow your friends in Skype chats.  Huzzah!

Note: They’re all animated, so just type the codes into a Skype chat to see ‘em in action. Additionally, if you’re not running the latest version of Skype you may have to update in order to see all of the emoticons.

Enjoy, and if you know of any other hidden emoticons that we’ve missed, please share them with us in the comments below!
