Palm Up Hand Emoji

Meaning: A yellow human hand stretched out with the palm facing upwards. The fingers are held in position ready to catch something or someone. Though shown as a yellow hand, this emoji will be available in all human skin tones.

The Palm Up Hand emoji symbolizes reception; the act of taking, receiving, asking, pleading, etc. It may also be a gesture for someone to place their hand in yours or just asking them to come along with you. Or the iconic and super patriarchal way of asking for a hand in marriage.

🚨 Please Note: This is an upcoming emoji currently in draft status. It is not available on any device as of yet. This emoji is expected to be released as part of Unicode 14.0 in the year 2022.

How and When to Use the Palm Up Hand Emoji

  • If you’re sharing a post about “following” something or someone, if you’re writing a quote resonating with the same, or if you’re casually asking someone to tag along, you can use this emoji.
  • If you’ve “caught” something, this emoji describes it. Like, “Yup! I caught thy blatant criticism” or “Make sure you catch the point”.
  • You can also use this emoji while drafting a quote about taking or texting someone about it. For example, “Take all you want. But replace it.” or “Taking is not the problem. Not reciprocating is”.
  • Even if you’re not patriarchal and you really don’t give a damn about the origin behind the olden way of talking to the dad about marrying his child, this emoji would show sweetness in the same context.
  • Some instances explaining the previous point – “Would you marry me?” or (this one’s a better way to put it) “Would you place your hand in mine in marriage?” (aww. ovarian explosions).
  • You could also use this emoji while asking someone else’s opinion – “And you? What do you think of all this?”.
