WhatsApp: What does the emoji on the DVD mean?

Have you used the emoji from the DVD?

Here we tell you its meaning and the moments in which you can use it

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 among which are 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.

Today we will talk about the DVD emoji, which represents the image of the data storage format, which is hardly used in the modern world anymore, but while we went back a few years, this was crazy and was used mostly for watch movies, play video games or you could simply save your data as photos or music.

The emoticon can be applied in different situations such as wanting to say that you want to watch a movie, videos or store a file. It can also function as a symbol of something that is already out of date. It is worth mentioning that the famous David Guetta selected the DVD emoji as the icon of his verified Snapchat account.

The designs of Google, Microsoft, Samsung and Softbank at the time were labeled as DVD, in order to differentiate it from Optical Disc.

This emoji was named “DVD” and was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.

It is important to mention that, despite having the same Unicode encoding, 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.
