It almost always depicts the right hand and its default color in usually yellow or, in the case of Samsung, a “flesh colored” pinky beige. Some platforms allow for skin tone modification on this emoji, but the feature is not supported across all devices. It is used to raise attention to a particular point, post or person. It can also be used as a directional “look up!” or to indicate that something is up. In some contexts, it can be used to look for hush as a new point is made.
