Gmail Chat Fun

July 6th, 2006 by bill · 187 Comments

»Liven up your Gmail Chat sessions with formatting and animated emoticons.

 

Update: For the full list of Gmail chat emoticons, including the new category-four smileys and the new robot smiley, see Gmail Chat Smileys.

Currently Gmail Chat does not support formatting like Yahoo or others do. But there are some things you can do to spice up the experience, such as it is. Some of this applies to Gtalk, some doesn’t.
Previously, we’ve covered bold, italics, and special characters (like ♫♥☼). We also noted that Google added an incoming-chat sound and the ability to add a picture to a Gmail contact.

However, here are some more Gmail Chat features.

To recap the text formatting…

Italics – you can surround text with an underscore (“_”) to italicize it. For example “_this_ is important” displays as “this is important”

Bold – if you surround text with astericks (“*”) it will display as bold. “*This* is important” displays as “this is important”

Update (6/6/2009): Strike through – surround text with hypens (“-”) to cross it out. “-This- is crossed out” will display as “This is crossed out”.

Special Characters

You can copy-paste special characters from charmap (in Windows) or another character map application or website into your messages. Try copy-pasting any of the following characters into a Gmail chat window (or status, see below):
Whoops! A WordPress upgrade somehow munged these characters. I’ll work on recreating.

Status

If any of your Gmail contacts are online, they can be displayed to the left of the browser window, with an icon and chat status message displayed as well. Contact status icons can be either grey, red, orange, or green indicating that the contact is offline, busy, idle, or online and available (respectively).

However, if the contact has set a status message, it will be displayed below the contact name. This status message can also be formatted (bold and/or italic) and can include special characters. For example, you might use ♫♪ to indicate the obvious.

Further, you can include a domain in your status and it will hyperlink automatically. Type techrageo.us as your status and it becomes techrageo.us all by itself.

Gmail chat emoticons Emoticons

Gmail’s Chat has slick little animated emoticons. No, not the ubiquitous yellow smiley faces, but a clever modern take on the original text emoticons.

And no, unfortunately the emoticons don’t work in the status messages. Come on, Google. I can \m/ rock out in chat, but I have to ♫♪ in my status message. Oh, well, I guess that’s okay.

Update: Google has updated Gmail, and it includes a new popup smiley interface and new emoticons.
Update: There are even more (well, a few more) smileys, including the robot [:|] and the “poo” thing ~@~. See the full list of emoticons in Gmail chat.
Update: Strikeout text is now supported. See above..

Gmail Integration

Say you receive an email and want to send a quick reply. If the person to whom you’re replying is online, you can also reply to their email message via chat.

Also, your chat history is saved. On the left side of the Gmail browser window, a couple items below Inbox is Chats. Click that to get a history of your chats. If you “Go Offline with…” a contact, that chat is not saved. Also, you can turn off the feature that saves chats.

Gmail Chat Help is a good overview of the features

    @dopey, the kiss face is a new emoticon for gmail, which was covered in the post on the topic here.

  • 41 Teree // Jan 31, 2008 at 8:04 am

    If I put my self offline and do not sign out of chat will it show red on the other persons computer or will it show the grey offline? I do not want to seem rude?? So if it is showing as red I would rather just sign out of chat.

  • 42 bill // Jan 31, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    @Teree, if you sign out of chat you’ll show up as offline — gray. You have to choose a Busy status to show as red. Either way, red really shouldn’t be seen as rude, just that you’re, well, busy. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for this great page.

    It came in useful when I was writing an article about the fact that the emoticon is the most popular ambigram on the web (http://ambigrams.flipscript.com/most-popular-ambigram).

    I also clipped your graphic. I hope you don’t mind.

  • 76 Mark // Aug 27, 2008 at 3:52 pm

    Hey Bill,

    Great minds think alike.

    Take a look at the Emoticon Wikipedia Page and do a search for “ambigram”.
    :-)

    It now states that Emoticons are tiny ambigrams.

    Here’s one you haven’t tried yet. When you put aterisks (*) around a word, they become bold. So, if I wanted to be someone named Ashley, it would look like this. *Ashley:* Yay, I got an A on the math quiz! Simply push the ENTER key and watch what happens. Warning: Make sure that you were the one to type the last word before you touch that ENTER key.
