Microsoft adds Shoulder Tap emoji feature in latest Windows 10 Insider preview – The Verge

We’ve known it was coming for a while, but Microsoft has added Shoulder Tap to the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build. Originally planned for the Windows 10 Creators Update, Shoulder Tap will cause a giant, animated version of an emoji to pop up over your taskbar if one of your pinned contacts sends you one through Skype.

You can see how the feature works in the above GIF via Rafael Rivera, which was originally posted by Microsoft before getting pulled, presumably due to the unannounced gear icon that the GIF shows (the function of that icon is still unknown.)

And if you’re not a fan of having your computer overwhelmed by giant emoji every time your friend sends you one, don’t worry — you can toggle Shoulder Tap off.
