[Discussion] Everything You Need To Know About Emoji

Hello Mi Fans, Emojis add personality to our most bland text messages and that’s the reason we use them so much. In fact, you can simply use emojis to convey numerous feelings. Thanks to the modern day smartphones and the rise of instant messengers like WhatsApp, emojis are used way more often. That means there are tons of cool emojis and new ones are being added all the time. While most of the emojis are easy to understand, some are confusing. Keeping that in mind, we are listing down the meanings of emojis, that you use all the time.

History Of Emoji: A small digital image or icon to express an idea or emotion in electronic communication. Origination on Japanese mobile phones in the late 1990s, Emoji has become popular all over the world because Apple's iPhone includes its international inclusion, after which it was followed by similar adoption by Android and other mobile operating systems. These companies define their own variant of emoji using each ownership standard. In 1999, the first emoji was created by Shigetaka Kurita.

Emoji: a science in itself
Emoji has changed a lot in the last few years and has become more popular than this. Unfortunately, they can sometimes be due to misunderstanding in everyday communication. What is the reason behind this? Phone makers like to put their twist on small markings, which can change its meaning very fast on the platform. Without Further ado, Here's your introduction to the world of emoji.

With emoji, you can express almost any emotion, and even tell a whole story. Have you ever received a message that consisted solely of emoji? Sometimes these can be hard to interpret, since there isn't just a single, universal set of emoji and interpretations vary by individual and by culture. Some people are hesitant to use emoji at all if they're not sure what the meaning is, or they're worried it could be taken the wrong way.

( There are many unique versions of each emoji )

In the table above, you'll find a brief overview of some emoji across different platforms. You'll notice almost immediately that each emoji has a lot of variations which could be interpreted differently depending on which platform you and your recipient use. The differences are especially apparent with classic smiley faces.

( With Android O, Google introduces completely new, more circular emoji to replace the old blobs. )

If you send an emoji on WhatsApp or another app that uses its own emoji, you can be certain that the recipient will see the exact same emoji. If you send an emoji by text message, though, this is no longer the case. You'll see your phone manufacturer's version of the emoji, and the recipient will see their phone manufacturer's version (which can be different). As you've seen above, the different versions of a single emoji can vary widely, so don't be surprised if you get a strange reaction from the people you're messaging sometimes.
