You are absolutely correct. I’m engaged in an argument an impassioned discussion where apparently it’s a high five…

(I use it interchangeably for please and thank you).

Low blow. Apparently “the youth” consider it a high five.

I’m yet to be convinced.

He’ll probably say :monkey: is please and :badger: is high 5

Right

So 10 year old laughed and said no

17 year old said apparently if you search it up in Siri or something like that it’s officially called a high five but nobody else calls it that

:raised_hand: < is the high five emoji.
:pray: < is a gesture for please and thank you, western culture adapted it to mean pray.

Emojipedia is a great source for this stuff, and should help settle these disputes, given that they are a voting member of the Unicode Consortium.

For what it’s worth: 🙏 Person with Folded Hands Emoji

A number of variations have it clearly as one person placing their hands together.

And it used to have light behind it on some platforms, literally as if prayer.

I use it rarely but when I do as a thank you/please type thing.
