WhatsApp: What does the tired face emoji mean?

Are you frustrated or exhausted? The tired face emoji can be ideal for WhatsApp

Emojis came to reinvent the form of written communication between people, especially with the appearance of social networks and instant messaging services, where words, phrases, emotions or expressions can be replaced with graphic symbols that are generally divided into six categories including yellow faces, food, animals, weather conditions, numbers and symbols.

This whole universe of icons can be overwhelming, that is why here we explain the meaning of emojis, this time, the tired face.

The emoji belongs to the yellow faces section, and shows his eyes closed so tightly that they appear in an X-shape as if they were wrinkled, his brows furrowed and his brow wide and open, giving the impression that he is yawning from fatigue or giving groan of exasperation. In most cases you can see the upper teeth and even the tongue.

In general, the icon represents tiredness, but it can vary in intensity and tone of frustration or sadness depending on the context. It can even be interpreted as the emotion that someone feels when they cannot control or express how great another person or something specific is.

Its appearance is similar to the exhausted face, but with its difference is in the shape of the eyes. Nor should it be confused with the sleepy face or the one that appears drowsiness, which they express when a person is asleep, rather than tired.

Samsung’s previous design featured three blue vertical lines on its forehead, which are usually applied to express fatigue in manga and anime.
