Voicemod, an augmented voice and interactive audio company, has signed its second IP deal in collaboration with lifestyle brand, The Smiley Company, for its classic library of emoticons.  

The agreement provides access to SmileyWorld’s vast library, which will be integrated into Voicemod’s interactive sound content. 

Voicemod builds the audio tools that make it easy for people to express themselves however they want to be heard. By incorporating SmileyWorld into its real-time voice augmentation and audio creations, Voicemod will provide the beloved emoticons with their own sonic identity beginning with 27 key emotions that have been identified as the most expressed and communicated by humans.  

For the first time, users will be able to enhance their communications with sound content which will become a shorthand for expressing their inner emotions, allowing them to communicate in a way which is easy to do, and even easier to understand.  

“It is a pleasure to partner with such an iconic company as Smiley through this new IP content deal,” says Jamie Bosch, chief executive officer, Voicemod. “We are so excited to continue to forge a more immersive digital world in collaboration with the creators of the world’s first emoticons to provide sound content from SmileyWorld, the iconic brand of self-expression for users to interact with and enjoy.” 

“We are thrilled to partner with such an incredibly cool leader of voice technology in amplifying Smiley’s interactive presence,” says Lori Heiss-Tiplady, senior vice president, digital, The Smiley Company. “In collaboration with Voicemod, we are excited to bring SmileyWorld’s icons to life with exciting sound content for digital users to express themselves within the ever-evolving metaverse,”  

Additional details on this upcoming content will soon become available on Voicemod.com
