How to use grinning squinting face emoji

Much like other happy emojis, the Grinning Squinting face can be used to demonstrate satisfaction or excitement in your messages. The added scrunched up eyes add a bit of cheekiness to the overall tone however, which could be ideal for jokey situations. 

Let’s say your friend group is organising a night out at the cinema to watch the next Summer blockbuster. One of your friends is notoriously tight with money and is especially wary of overpriced cinema popcorn. You could say: Jake’s buying the popcorn πŸ˜†

In this particular situation, not only have you made a positive humorous remark - you have also highlighted Jake’s Scrooge like buying habits, potentially even pressuring him out of necessity to buy the popcorn. You could follow this up with a: Only joking Jake πŸ˜†

But honestly why would you? Free popcorn is free popcorn at the end of the day.

History of the πŸ˜† emoji

This emoji was added in Unicode 6.0 and later released in Emoji Version 1.0 which included popular emojis like Grinning Face and Sunglasses Face.
