When to send the open umbrella emoji?
Know its meaning in WhatsApp.
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 is the case of the umbrella.
It is a classic open and dry umbrella. In most cases it comes in purple with a hooked or curved handle.
As you might expect, it is used most frequently for different weather-related topics. It should not be confused with the umbrella with raindrops or with the closed umbrella, although its application may be similar.
The emoji is perfect for describing rainy weather, but it can also refer to a store that sells those kinds of items. In some regions, the umbrella is used to indicate sunny weather, since in Japan umbrellas are used to cover the sun.
The umbrella can also mean the need to buy a similar object or item.
WhatsApp: What does the umbrella emoji mean?
All manufacturers of web services, operating systems or devices can create Emoji designs according to their own corporate style and vision, which is why this umbrella on WhatsApp is displayed in green. The icon at Google was previously blue, while the one at Microsoft and Samsung was once red.
Umbrella or umbrella was approved as part of Unicode 1.1 since 1993 and several years later it was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
