Emoticons Shortcuts

Earlier we were used to the simple codes like :), 🙁 etc.. however these don’t work anymore. If you types these codes (as it is being mentioned on internet by lot of blogs), these will not get transformed to any smiley. These will go just as plain text, so point try to look for shortcuts or smiley codes. Use the ones already provided by Google hangouts.
