On Thursday, September 21, 2017, in commemoration of five thrilling decades on TV, the daytime drama is excited to announce the GLOBAL launch of the OFFICIAL and groundbreaking DOOLMoji app, a first of its kind for a daytime drama series.
"After more than a year developing and fine-tuning the emojis, we are excited to finally release the DOOLMoji app!

The DOOLMoji app, developed by Corday Productions, is the show's first dive into the digital realm with more to come. The DOOLMojis have been created as an exciting new way for fans to communicate with each other and with the show via social media platforms as well as through text messaging apps and SMS. Days of our Lives is the first daytime television series to create emoji renders of its characters in an effort to enhance interaction with its passionate fanbase. With additional emojis releasing later this year, the first collection of emojis will include depictions of many fan-favorite characters such as, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall), Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso), John Black (Drake Hogestyn), Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow), Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering), Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn), and Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves), as well as much anticipated returns including Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney). In addition to show characters, the app will also feature emojis of memorable moments, objects, and symbols including: the infamous Sami/Carrie b*tchslap of 1997 and Marlena's levitation of 1994.
The app will be available for both iPhone and Android devices, available in the App Store and Google Play for 99 cents as of September 21, 2017.
