Pixar’s latest film, ‘Inside Out‘, is all about the emotions that live in your head and now they can live in your Skype chats too. Microsoft and Pixar have teamed up to make custom emoji of five main characters, Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust.

They’re available in the iOS and Android apps now and will be travelling over to the Windows and OS X versions soon. To make them appear, just type (joy), (sadness), (fear), (anger) and (disgust) into the IM window.
