The ? emoji has the meaning Party Popper. It belongs to the category Objects Emojis. It is also known as Celebration, Party, Birthday or Party Hat. It shows a kind of cone-shaped bag, from which confetti and the like comes out. The color of the bag and the colors of the confetti is quite different from platform to platform. On a few platforms, this emoji can only be displayed in black and white – that does not look really nice and reminds you not to a party. But the meaning of ? emoji does not change. So when do you use this emoji best in WhatsApp and Co?
You want to congratulate your friend on his birthday? Then write him at night at 24 o’clock something like: “Happy birthday – let yourself celebrate ?” The emoji can also be used in hindsight or in the run-up to a party. In hindsight: “The party yesterday was really great” In the run-up: “I’m really looking forward to the party tomorrow ? who is there?” As with other emojis, the ? emoji is often written three times in a row to increase the meaning even more. This emoji has a slightly different meaning if you turn it upside down. Then you could call it a party hat. But it’s always about party with this emoji, no matter how many times you turn it. This emoji is part of Unicode 6.0 from 2010 and has been added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
