Dango appears in any messaging app. It understands text, quickly predicting emoji, GIFs, kaomoji, and stickers to enhance conversations. This product consists of a collection gallery and a small character that floats over apps, showing an expanded selection of content when tapped.
getdango.com begins with an interactive text box that translates words into emoji. Mimicking how the app would work on a phone, users can explore the depth of Dango's understanding capabilities.
The website goes further into details regarding content personalization, sticker artist sign-ups, privacy, and the finer technical points behind combining deep learning with emoji.
A "mini-bubble" appears for quick emoji input when a phrase is particularly strong. Tapping on Dango will always open a window where you can view relevant content.
We curated GIFs into Collections, allowing users to add and personalize the content they send (ex. only GIFs from a certain cartoon). We individually tag GIFs within an emoji semantic space, not just by keyword.
While Dango has a window that floats over other apps, the main app serves to aid users personalize their Collections. Add a Collection and test its content all within the app.
By enabling Dango to react to conversations in a cute and humorous way, its presence becomes more amusing than annoying. Going through sad times? Dango cries along with you.
Several mini web applications were created to showcase how Dango can translate text into GIFs in the same way as emoji. Sites have individual themes to advertise GIF Collections available within the app.
Alongside the release of our kaomoji collection, we created an interactive post showing different ways symbols can be used to create faces.
The post goes on to teach how kaomoji are put together, ending with a textbox that acts as an educational tool — but also hints at what's possible within Dango.
