The ✨ meaning is Sparkles. It is also known as Stars or Sparkle. The emoji shows three yellow or orange four jagged stars on all platforms. Most of the time one of the stars is bigger than the other two. On some very few platforms, the individual stars are shown in different colors. The ✨ emoji is most often used when you want to say that something is so clean that it shines. But even if you or someone else has done a brilliant job, the ✨ emoji can be used well. In combination with other emojis, the sparkling star emoji is especially useful. For example, if you want to say that the car is clean: “The car is clean ✨🚗✨” This emoji was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 and thus in 2010, and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
