Raised back of hand emoji

The raised back of hand emoji

The raised back of hand emoji shows the reverse or back side of a human hand, in an upright position.

Many people get this emoji confused with the front of the raised hand emoji (we’ll talk about this one in a bit), so both of these emojis are often used for the same things.

The raised back of hand emoji can be used to say hi or bye, as in “Hi! 👋”, similar to waving. It can also represent you putting your hand up, showing that you have a question, you’re there, or that you’d like a chance to say something.

Some people even use the raised back of hand emoji for voting – if you use this emoji, it means you agree with or are in favor with whatever’s being voted on.

The raised back of hand emoji also lets people know that you should be counted in to do something. For example, if someone asks in a group chat who is joining them for a movie on Friday night, you could respond with 👋, which says: Yes, I’ll be there!

Other times this emoji is used as a high five in response to something positive or exciting shared between friends, such as “Well done! 👋 [high five]”
