We recently changed from IRC to Rocket.chat and now all enjoy the colorful richness of emojis, and in particular animated emoticons such as the add-emoji that so much helps productivity.

But there's a latent feeling something still is missing and the answer is simple: audio emojis! We need a feature to send audio emojis to the group and individuals that play on the recipients phones/speakers no matter what. They can be short, they can be looped, same as image emojis they need to catch attention and not allow the user to focus on something else than the chat, e.g. a smart burping to be sent every day after dinner, a looped very funny laughing when somebody announces to have broken the CI system shortly before the release or just some gulping noise which is what you preferably want to do with the add-emoji

Basic infrastructure should be available, Rocket can already play server-side stored sounds on the client (browser).

      Please add a setting to only display audio emoji as a waveform instead of actually playing them. ;)
