Have you ever used the WhatsApp baby emoji?
We will tell you its meaning so that you know what the other people who have received it have understood.
The arrival of emojis to the digital world has made it easier for users to express their feelings in conversations on WhatsApp and other platforms. They are generally divided into six categories, including yellow faces, food, animals, weather conditions, numbers, and symbols.
Currently, it is very common to replace words or phrases with an emoji that expresses exactly what you want to say. WhatsApp has made its catalog of emojis available to everyone, which makes their real meaning clear, be it happiness, sadness, dream, anger, disappointment, among others, but there are some more whose interpretation is subject to different cultural contexts depending on the environment of the person using them.
This emoji was named “Baby”, it was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. We can see that it is a face of a small child, that has little amount of hair and that is how it looks in most of platforms, while in some variations it appears with a pacifier in its mouth. It is worth mentioning that Android had already shown this emoticon as a swaddled baby before. On the snapchat platform, it means a new friend on the service.
Users can use this emoticon in any situation related to a newborn, if your wife or a relative has just given birth. Also its application can be to describe a childish behavior when having a fight with someone. Although in most cases it is used to replace the word “baby”.
It is important to mention that, despite having the same Unicode coding, each platform can vary the design of each emoji to adapt to its operating system or interface. On many occasions this generates a great difference in the interpretation of the same symbol.
