How to use person raising hand emoji
Think back to school a moment; you’re sitting there daydreaming about hometime and all of a sudden the teacher opens up the discussion to the classroom. Suddenly a whole wave of hands shoot up with confused students questioning what exactly it was they were supposed to be learning. The Person Raising Hand emoji is a pretty good representation of this; say your friend has described a night out but left out some important information. In this instance you could message: 🙋 how do we get there exactly? You could also use this on the emoji on the other end of the spectrum and use the symbol when answering questions, but this is an extremely rare usage. The Happy Person Raising One Hand emoji (the official Unicode name for the symbol) can also be used to indicate eagerness or agreement. Think back once again to your childhood; if the words “who wants ice cream” were ever spoke, then you would practically almost dislocate your arm trying to demonstrate your eagerness.
History of the 🙋 emoji
Approved as part of Unicode 6.0, the Person Raising Hand emoji was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
