In the table below the first column shows how the static Skype smiley looks like. The second column is showing how the Animated Skype smiley looks. The last two columns are description and the of code of the secret Skype smiley. The last column here is very important. There is no other way to use the secret Skype smiley than to use the code in the last column. Use it as it is. Simply copy and paste.

I have to agree that such little funny things make a simple piece of software stand out from the rest. Not that this is the only great feature of Skype but sill it makes our everyday experience with Skype slightly different. It does not matter if you use it for business correspondence or you simply chat with your friends.

Have a nice chat.
