These are as of version 5.5 [2003-02-13], unless otherwise marked. Version 6 [2004-11-17] made more emoticons visible from the menu and changed some emoticons from static to animated. Some of the changes in emoticons were quite subtle. Version 7 [2005-08-08] added two new hidden emoticons

Google Talk

As of 2006-04-13, Google Talk only does a few emoticons: They're all small, briefly animated, and look like what you typed in. Ref: Can I use emoticons? [mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=34056]

Emoticon File Name Type This
angry X-(
cool B-)
cry :'(
equal_grin =D
equal_smile =)
frown :(

monkey :(|)
nose_grin :-)
nose_smile :-)
rockout \m/

wink_big_nose ;^)
wink_nose ;-)

Rumor has it that Google Talk also animates others like these:

  • }:-)    Devil
  • >.<   Wince
  • +/'\   Cowbell

2007-12-06: Emoticons on the Google Chat app are the same, but Google has tweaked the emoticons on the Chat part of Gmail. There are now 12 emoticons up front. If you hand type them in, then it's the simple animated emoticons, but now you can also use the interface to select animated round emoticons and animated squarish emoticons. I've included just the end of the anmiations below.

Name Text Simple Round Squarish

wink ;)
cry :'(
shocked :-o

angry x-(
frown :(
