MSN Messenger

MSN Messenger, also known as Windows Live Messenger, was an instant messaging platform developed by Microsoft.

First launched in 1999, the messenger platform first introduced a series of animated emoticons via its MSN Messenger 6.0 update on July 17, 2003. The platform was discontinued in 2013.

8 MSN Messenger emoticons that should be emoji

These animated emoticons were based on a series of shortcodes, such as :-D to insert a predecessor to the ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Grinning Face with Big Eyes emoji and (H) to use a predecessor to the ๐Ÿ˜Ž Smiling Face with Sunglasses emoji.

Many MSN Messenger emoticons now have emoji equivalents within the modern Unicode-based emoji keyboard.
