There's a new way to chat with your friends on Skype via text messages. Microsoft is launching a new feature called "Mojis". Much like how emojis allow text chat to be more colorful with special symbols, the new Mojis let users add short pre-generated clips from movies and TV shows in text messages.

Microsoft says:

Sending a Moji is as easy as tapping the emoticon button. Browse by movie or by expression, preview the Moji, and drop it in the chat to do the talking for you. We've scoured the archives and handpicked the funniest, craziest, and most iconic moments from some of the best TV and movies out there.

Some of the first entertainment franchises that will be included in the new Skype Mojis lineup include The Muppets, Despicable Me, Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect, Jurassic Park and more. The new feature will roll out over the coming days.
