How and When to Use the 🙌 Raising Hands Emoji

  • If someone just texted you about something celebratory, send the 🙌 emoji to share in that happiness.
  • You can also send 🙌 while sharing something exciting with your friends (and family too, but they most likely would not get the emoji).
  • It also signifies the Christian style of worship and praise. So, while messaging your Church buddies, or making exciting Christmas plans, you can use 🙌.
  • If you’re really thankful for someone or something in your life, use 🙌 to convey gratitude.
  • If your chat group(s) just messaged about something unbelievable, like a school holiday or something, send 🙌 to show that you’re more than happy (if you really are, that is).
  • If you completely agree by someone or something that you witnessed on your social media feed or DMs, send 🙌.
